Description Laurent Balland 2016-06-24 15:17:01 UTC
Description: In UI dialog for Number format, category Fraction, only 2 models were available. In LibO 5.2, two new formats were added, but some more should be added.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Format > Cells > Numbers, Category: Fraction

Actual behavior:
Two models were available:
# ?/?
# ??/??
In LibO 5.2, two new formats were added
# ?/4
# ?/100
See https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit?id=5c24711c6517943d22a978112dc74fa4184dc5f7
Formats list is not explicit about these format, but this is for bug 100413 comment 1.

Expected behavior:
In other spreadsheet software, there are many other formats. This may let the user think that LibO cannot manage these formats
Proposed list:
# ?/?
# ?/??
# ?/???
# ?/2
# ?/4
# ?/8
# ?/16
# ?/10
# ?/100
