"The last column in the pic above was created with these format strings:
date: dd MMMM yyyy"


In advanced options, Custom date format, I wrote: yyyy MMMM dd and save.
But the date is still dd/mm/yyyy.

I tried with yyyy/mm/dd, same result.

And date: yyyy/mm/dd

What am i missing?

This is great! Pretty much every time I (try to) write a commandline handler for the Programmable column's system() call, you add the information as a native feature :) so the handler becomes redundant. That's good because the most recent one was totally not working with 5.0.0.2 Ult.

this date format is associated to a LAYOUT, so if you use more than one layouts use the layout selector drop-down in the advanced settings dialog
