Open Office - Decimal point is replaced by a comma!

December 2016




Issue


I have a problem under Open Office Writer and Calc: Upon pressing on decimal point (numeric keypad) a comma is entered instead. Each time I have to use the keyboard combo (Shift + .).

Solution


This may when your (OS) language environment is set to French:
  • Click on Option > Language settings > language.
  • Uncheck the following: "Decimal separator identical to the language environment".

Thanks to le druide for this tip.
