I am trying to configure LibreOffice 6.0­.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro SP1 using the Collabora group policy templates to prevent users from changing the decimal marker in Calc. Specifically, I am enabling Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Collabora Office\Common\Localization\Decimal separator as locale, and checking the "Decimal separator key same as locale setting" and "Final" checkboxes.

The expected behaviour is that in Tools | Options | Language Settings | Languages, the Decimal separator key checkbox is checked, greyed out, and not changeable by the user (additionally, it should have a gold key next to the setting to indicate that it is locked, but it doesn't. This is cosmetic, though).

However, configuring this group policy setting doesn't change the behaviour at all in that the setting is changeable by the user, the change persists, and the user can change the decimal separator.

I've tried manually setting this through the registry as well, with no luck.

Has anyone successfully configured this setting either through group policy or registry settings?
