Hi everyone,

Would someone please confirm this bug for I just opened?

Sample document exhibiting the problem is attached to the bug.


​Charles, I had no problem opening attachment 94576 in version
(Build ID: 420m0(Build:1)) of Writer  - no weird characters that I
could see, but the comma in $ 38,52 surprised me ; I should have
expected a decimal point....[?]

Wouldn't that depend on what language is used. I thought some countries
use a comma instead of the decimal point.

You are correct. The US uses the decimal point or period and I know some European countries use the comma instead.

There is setting under TOOLS>OPTIONS>LANGUAGE SETTINGS>LANGUAGE to set the default separator based on the system location (US, France, etc.). I think the default is to use the local setting but it can be reset.
