Summary0003963: Only alpha comma key can be used as decimal separator
DescriptionOn some values in the Property editor panel, only the alpha comma key is accepted as decimal separator.
This is suboptimal (mainly compared to num dot key) when entering numbers
OS: Linux Mint 19.1
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.18.16093 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-18
Hash: 690774c0effe4fd7b8d2b5e2fb2b8c8d145e21ce
Python version: 2.7.15rc1
Qt version: 5.9.5
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.3.0
Locale: French/France (fr_FR)
Steps To ReproduceEdit a value directly in the property editing panel.
Some will indifferently accept comma or dot (alpha comma, alpha dot, num dot) - eg Placement Angle - and some will enforce user to use alpha comma - eg Placement x Axis -.
Additional InformationLinked forum thread

AFAIK, no FC forumer natively using dot sign as decimal separator (eg en_US) has confirmed or not the bug. Only users using comma as decimal separator did.
Proposed fix in the forum discussion :
  • Numpad dot key is always accepted as decimal separator
  • User options to enforce FC to specifically accept alpha dot and/or alpha comma as decimal separator
