Date problem

Thanks Dave. I have installed version 2.6.13 and it works fine – at least the date problem is fixed.
I assume the powers-that-be who update the program will include a fix in a later version.
Cheers, Keith

See the last couple of comments (snippet below) on this gnucash bug - - there was a change in version 2.6.14 that may be your issue so you might want to go back to version 2.6.13 for now ?

Cheers Dave H.
I've pushed phase 1, which is the change to 11:00 UTC for most places (it's adjusted in timezones -12, +13, and +14 so that it won't immediately jump a day on them), to maint. It will be in 2.6.14. It includes a scrub to move all of the old transactions' times. The scrub will use that GDate slot if it's available.

Still not the perfect fix of using a date only; that has to wait for 2.8.0.

I live in New Zealand and we had a daylight-saving change on Sunday 25
September when we moved clocks forward an hour. Since then I have had
problems with the date in GnuCash but I cannot find any settings that I can
change to fix it. I am using Windows 10 Pro and GnuCash 2.6.14.

When I open GnuCash the date displayed at the bottom of the screen is for
the following day e.g. today is Oct 6 but GnuCash shows 07/10/2016. No
matter what date I type on the screen, when I press "Enter" GnuCash adds a
day, so if I want to enter a transaction for today (6/10/2016) I have to
type 5/10/2016 for the date and then when I have finished the transaction
and press "Enter" it will show it as 06/10/2016.

I started using GnuCash in 2013 and have not had this problem before, even
though we have daylight-changes every year. Is there some way I can get
GnuCash to know what day it is?
