Changing format of global variables


Is there a setting anywhere in Sense Desktop where you can change the format of the global variables for all future new dashboards?

For example, these are the predefined Date / Months formats in any new dashboard.

SET DateFormat='D/M/YYYY';
SET MonthNames='Jan.;Feb.;Mar.;Apr.;May;Jun.;Jul.;Aug.;Sep.;Oct.;Nov.;Dec.';

I don't like those formats and want to use 

SET DateFormat='DD/MM/YYYY';
SET MonthNames='Jan;Feb;Mar;Apr;May;Jun;Jul;Aug;Sep;Oct;Nov;Dec';

I don't want to have to SET this to the format every single time.  Is there a setting anywhere that will change this so any new dashboards created will have the correct format automagically in the list of global variables?
