    When I create a reminder it will not allow me to distinguish between AM and PM its so frustrating because it create the reminders for the wrong time.

    It just shows the time not AM PM. Is there something that I am missing?

    What OS are you using? On my MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion, if I enable the 24-hour clock option (System Preferences>Date & Time>Clock>Use a 24-hour clock), Reminders won't let me specify AM/PM, since there is no need. If I uncheck that option, Show AM/PM is selected, and the option in Reminders is restored.

    A week or so ago I was trying to get rid of the AM/PM in the menu bar and add seconds, instead of unchecking that check box in the Date and Time Preferences I deep dove into the set date and time formats under the "open language & text" button and changed the short option to not have AM/PM which was a system wide change.
