Number conversion: 0.50 > 0,5

The number conversion works fine, but it is converting any number with a trailing decimal zero just as follows:

0.50 becomes 0,5

0.60 becomes 0,6

From a mathematical point of view absolutely correct, but this is not what I want (and what most other translators won't want). Bug or feature? Or did I muss any checkmark anywhere?

Not my fault, Will's got no progressive lenses. ;-)

Thanks Woorden

Please tell that Will. I unsubbed from the forum of the Thieves of Mountain View.


woorden: Might be useful. Will try.

I tried. It's useful. My excuse for not having tried it before, is that I've been using CT for only 5 years.

In the menu, Edit | Options |Auto-Assemble, enable Format numbers.

(and enable AA, of course, maybe, I think).

To prevent segments with only numbers, or with only numbers + a unit, just click Next Segment (as above), or use the relevant shortcut. You can "Jump Over" segments with numbers or segments with no letters. You can also filter first on Segments with no letters.

I translate from both English and German to Dutch, so I should somehow remember to turn of Format Numbers if the SL is German, although it's quite possible CT discovers this automagically.
