Platform: SLED 11 sp1 i586
build info: Libreoffice 3.4 release

The basic function w/ CT2N 1.4.0 looks working for me.

Confirming on Mac OSX with :

LibO-dev Master LibO-dev 3.5.0 
Build ID: 6058133-1b94742-3dca5fd-7252360

NeoOffice 3.2 patch 5
NeoOffice 3.1.2 patch 8
OpenOffice.org 3.2.1

Tested with following strings :
two thousand and fifty-five
three hundred point ten

also tested with French locale text number strings.

entered in cells A1 and A2 respectively. Selected the cells, clicked on the extension button in tool bar, also tried via addons menu entry.

The message box at the bottom of the convert dialog returns "Nothing to change".
Perhaps I have misunderstood how it is to be used ?

Also tried without the 'and' and 'point' - same result, i.e. non-functional. Formatted the strings explicitly as text with language as US or UK, same result, non-functional.

The problem appears to be general with respect to the Mac platform. This would appear to be the developer's problem, not ours, since it wouldn't be the first time that an extension has been OS specific. FWIW, I am uncertain as to whether I am using this extension correctly.

My apologies.Apparently the extension C2TN only converts numbers shown as text.
eg '1236 is text as it is prefixed with an apostrophe.
I don't think it was ever meant to convert One thousand two hundred and thirty six to a number entry.

Many thanks,  Tink.
