Hey All,

This might be late but I've just come across a similar issue regarding the Date Picker not working in this exact way.

I've found an old bug that says this could be caused by the third-party plugin so I think what you can do when you hit into this behavior, is to either:

  1. Enable Safe Mode - so all third-party addons will then be disabled and try inserting a Date again to see if this is even caused by any of the plugins you've installed
  2. Disable third-party addons one by one so that if the issue is indeed caused by one(or more) of the plugins, you're able to identify which exact one(s) that causes this.

update about this issue

Handy Macros for Confluence v2.0.3 can cause this issue so if you are affected, please try to disable this plugin and see if this is the case. 

@Anne I saw your report, but it looks like you are able to edit -- is this issue resolved?

no, the question I initially posted is not solved.

I wanted to delete my answer (as it actually was none). Question to you was wether the possibility to delete your own anwers is planned.

...if not, feel free to delet my answer here incl our conversation

Were having the same issue, have you found a solution for this?
