Decimal separation with comma instead of period

Recommended Posts

I use Polish keyboard layout and . (dot) on NumPad is mapped as , (comma) for decimal separation (that's how you mark it in Polish).

Unfortunately, Affinity software doesn't accept values with a comma, only with dot. I've found it a bit frustrating sometimes.
Can it be implemented in future, so both values will be accepted?

Adobe takes 10.5 as well as 10,5 which is handy and will calculate 2.5+2,5 without problems.

AP and AD should use dot/comma setting of your set system language, and correct dot to comma or comma to dot as needed. (At least mac version does.) Or is that some numpad specific issue?

I'm on W10 and using UK keyboard, but sometimes switch to Polish Programmers layout. Using dot key on NumPad types comma instead, which is correct for Polish layout. In Affinity I can type comma, but AP and AD don't respect it (won't do anything after pressing enter, just revert to previous value). My Affinity software is setup to English UK.

Works for me in Affinity Designer as well. I guess there must be something wrong with your system settings.

After a deeper investigation the issue of not accepting commas appears in Beta 1.6.5.123, but it's working OK in stable 1.6.4.104.

I should have checked it earlier.

I cannot confirm your findings. Works as expected in 1.6.5.123 as well...
