Problem description: 

This is an enhancement request, not a bug.

I regularly change behavior. "" (dot) and "," (comma) in the options (tools, options, language, decimal separator).
I use the numeric keypad on your computer to enter numbers.
The "." (period) to capture many IP addresses.
The "," (comma) to perform calculations (conventional use)
Would it be possible to develop in a future version of LibreOffice accessible button on the Standard toolbar, to switch between the point and the point quickly without having to go through the configuration settings?
This flip-flop semicolon should be possible in any environment if possible LibreOffice (writer, spreadsheet, presentation, etc ...).

Thank you to all the team of developers.

Excuse my broken English. I am French and used google translation to write to you.

kind regards.

Hm we probably won't do such a special thing in LO, but you can write yourself a macro for that and put it in the toolbar.

I follow Samuel and set this issue as WONTFIX.
