Is it possible to set a default format for datetick labels? Sometimes MATLAB gives me "mm/dd" when I prefer "dd/mm".
I could easily set this manually for every plot, but it's easy to overlook and I often send plots to people with the wrong date format.

I'm sure there probaby is, but I can't figure out how/where to try to address it...the documentation on default properties has always led me down a rabbit hole from which I've never found my way to the tea party...
It's particularly troublesome for the DatetimeRuler object which appears by magic when you plot into an axes with a datetime variable. If/when you create a new axis, it is always the default numeric axis.
I seem to recall S Lord showing an example at one time of a magic incantation, but I don't reall what it was nor could I find it in a quick search...
But short story is I couldn't figure out a default property name that could assign nor recall...I'm sure they have to exist, but how to get/set I can't tell ya'...
