    ThomasBauer

      Summary

      Line size 0,25 vs. 0.25

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.3

      Description of the issue

      Prerequisite: German setting in the OS for decimal seperator (= ","; in Amerika or Switzerland it is ".")

      When you want to format a line the lowest value displayed is 0.25. When you choose this value in the inspector FileMaker (refering to the German setting for the decimal seperator, which is a ",") this value is interpreted as 25 => which renders the line a little bit too thick (see picture

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      change the county settings of the OS to "Germany"

      Expected result

      0,25

      Actual result

      25

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      n.a.

                   Thank you for your post.

                   I am able to reproduce the issue only under Windows 7.  Under Mac OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.1, it works as expected.  I have forwarded your post to our Development and Product Management departments for review.  When more information becomes available, I will let you know.

                Even with FileMaker 13v4 we can celebrate the 2nd anniversery of that bug.

                Looking forward that it will be fixed with the next version of FileMaker

                Thanks for considering

                  The decimal separator is now fully supported in FileMaker Pro 14.0.1.
