A screenshot showing the text.
The parameter description for 'No thousands separator' in the FIXED function is overly complicated and confusing.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an instance of Calc, launch the Function Wizard and double-click on the FIXED function.
2. Click in the 'No thousands separator' input box to bring upt the explanation in the wizard.
Current behavior:The current text is displayed, quite correctly.
To simplify this text and explicitly explain the point of the parameter, alter the text to something like;
'Thousands separator. If 0 or omitted the locale group separator is used else the separator is suppressed.'
I appreciate this is not a defect as such but the current text is very poor. I don't know of any other way to bring this up than as a bug.
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Do you mean replacing:
No thousands separator. True value, if existing and TRUE (unequal to 0), no thousands separators are set.
Thousands separator. If 0 or omitted the locale group separator is used else the separator is suppressed.
Assuming that's the case, submitting patch now
Patch submitted - upon review 4.2 should show the new text
