Localized/non localized decimal separators

Setting the decimal separator
Mattias Bratt
3 Posts


Is it possible to control what decimal separator is used in tables? My system standard is comma as in 3,14159 (Sweden), but I would like to be able to use decimal point instead (3.14159).

I need decimal point numbers for pasting into non-localized applications such as Geogebra, which does not interpret numbers with decimal commas correctly.  Strangely, numbers are sometimes shown with decimal points in the Tracker tables, but I cannot figure out why or control when.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
