Locale Date Time Formats (with *) show as M/d/yyyy in menu (Jan 2018 update)

In Power BI Desktop Jan 2018 release, with a Date or Date/Time field selected in the Fields pane, when you navigate to the Modeling ribbon / Format / Date Time menu, the options at the top (marked with an *) that respect the machine locale now show in US format (e.g. M/d/yyyy) on machines with non-US locales e.g. English (Australia).


This appears to only be a problem in the display of the menu.  When date fields are shown in a visual e.g. a Table, the expected non-US locale is used e.g. d/M/yyyy.  


This issue was introduced with the Jan 2018 update to PBI Desktop.

It is solved for me now with an English (Australia) Locale


Yes the new build solved this issue for me, in both Slicer, Table and Matrix visuals. English (Australia) locale.


I think you can close this Issue.
