    Hi, I need some help with Pages. I know how to insert the date and time, but I need it to automatically put it in the format of Month/Date/Year (ie August 3, 2009). When your insert the date and time in Pages, it automatically puts it in the format of Day/Month/Date/Year (ie Monday, August 3, 2009). I know if you right click on it and select "Edit Date and Time" you can adjust the format, but I need it to automatically put it in the format I want (Month/Date/Year) when I select "Insert Date and Time." Please help—the use of Microsoft Office depends on it :D

    It's probably following the format set under  -> System Preferences -> International -> Formats.

    Ok. I tried that and it is still doing the Day/Month/Date/Year format. Am I missing something?

    This is what it looks like when under "format"

    This is what it looks like after I click the "customize" button.
