Irritating date setting in repeating tasks


There is a very irritating 'bug' in setting repeating tasks. If you put 'every july 1' it will not take it, only 'every 1 july'.
This is despite the date then coming up as July 1, and it accepting july 1 as a single date.
I am British (and hence used to 1/7 as a date) but even I find that date format confusing here.

While we are on the topic, PLEASE add a 'remove date' short cut to the 'tomorrow, next week etc'

Hello Petra,

Thank you for your report, I've been able to reproduce this issue and have passed it to the developers. It seems to happen only when writing the name of the month as entering "every 7/1" will work correctly if the date format is set to MM-DD in the settings. We'll look into it.

We'll also consider adding a remove date option in future updates.

Best regards,

This issue has now been fixed, dates such as "every July 1" will be accepted when the date format is set to MM-DD.
