    Hello everyone, I am new to the mac World, I have visited your site many times and you guys are awesome, you always have a thread to help me with my concerns.

    However, I can not find a solution to this problem that I have.

    I have the OS X Lion with the latest update downloaded from apple.

    My problem is, the when I create a new file (not matter what, PDF, xls, etc) ALL the dates in the details are the same, no matter when I last modified it or opened it!

    Does anyone else have a similar problem? Is there any solution to that?

    It is very Important for me to sort my files by the last modified date.

    Thank you!

    George

    ok just a little update to the issue:

    I have just notice that when I browse (for example my Documents) as thumbnails (icons), list or coverflow, the dates are changes to the correct ones and the ones that actually are!

    When Iam viewing my documents as Columns, the Dates WILL NOT Update, the are always the same as the Creation of the file.

    So guys, any ideas? Could you please tell me If someone has the same problem?

    Please help, thanx!

    Yes, I can confirm this bug.
    Interestingly enough, when I arrange by 'Date last opened' in column view, the 'last Opened' date is displayed correctly. Arranged by name, on the other hand, 'last opened' and 'modified' will be the same.

    Yes, that would be best. It certainly seems reproducible enough.

    If you have a developer account, you can go to https://bugreport.apple.com/ to file a bug report. Otherwise you could use Apple's feedback form, but I'm not sure how quickly that would filter down to Apple's engineers.

    I should maybe add, that I don't seem to have a problem with actually sorting the files and no problem with the 'Modified' date being displayed correctly either . It is only the 'last opened' date that doesn't always seem to be accurate, as far as I can see.
