[GNC] Invoice date field starts too narrow

Why would the format of the date have any effect on this? Whether it is 12/12/2019 or 12/12/2019, the sequence of elements is immaterial.

I should clarify that I see this in the registers, not invoices. I should also say that it appears to me that the column width gets set, and then the drop down widget gets super imposed on the column, pushing data off screen. I have seen similar behavior in other apps, though, so I have always chalked it up to an annoying but unavoidable behavior.

Ah, now I understand.

Curious that it doesn’t show the entire first part of the date by default. (it does for me)

If you manually make the column wide enough to show the full date, (drag the right-hand header divider to the right) and then post that invoice, does the next new invoice carry over that width or does it default back to truncating?

Like David C., I’m also curious to know if MDY instead of DMY order has any effect for you. (I use MDY) That would help narrow down the cause.
