Description t.sartori 2024-01-28 08:03:22 UTC
My Linux is installed in English, keyboard layout German. The comma (,) in the num block enters a decimal point (.) when editing a cell. The comma (,) in the num block enters a comma (,) when editing the input line.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter 3.14 in a cell using the num block
2.Enter 3.14 in the input line using the num block
3.In the input line it will show 3,14

Actual Results:
I have to use the decimal point (.) in the main keyboard.

Expected Results:
The comma in the num block (remember: german keyboard layout) should always enter a decimal point (.) not only when editing a cell.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Possible wrong keyboard layout for the num block in Linux OS.
