Hi, Would it be possible to accept both "," and "." as acceptable decimal separator, or give users a choice in the matter? You typically end up in this situation if your base operating language is English, but your keyboard is not - it then becomes a bit of a guess as to what will happen when you press the "." button on the numeric keypad (yes, some of us like larger keyboards :) ). Some software will follow system language, some will follow the keyboard language, and typically you have precious little influence in the matter (only LibreOffice and its NeoOffice derivative have a setting for it in their "Languages" preference). AD and AP both want a value of 4½ entered as "4.5" (system language), whereas "4,5" is what I end up with using the numerical keypad. Rather than enter this as a bug and fire off a debate, how about being a bit smarter and develop an input routine that will accept either for numerical values? I have yet to come across anyone who enters triad separators when keying in a number for data entry. In case that gets too complicated, could a choice be added to the setup? Cheers!
