Wrong substitution of decimal separator

I wish Cafetran was more sensitive to context when substituting the decimal separator. I realize it might not be able to figure out all cases (such as numbers that start an item in a numbered list), but this one, pasted below, is an obvious error.

The first item of a list is followed by second item. The last item is preceded by one or more (numbered) items. So, technically spoken, this could be detected by the developer.

The same doc might contain the same number as a chapter number. Example:


12.12

Conclusions


Postal charges

12,12


Maybe this is a quite rare example.


However the problem seems to be that in CT numbers always get stick to anything that follows (full stops, commas, parentheses etc.).


Content: 7%.

Gehalt: 7 %.

=>

Content: 12%.

Gehalt: 12% %.

(wasn't this fixed recently?)

As said above, the same case is for full stops and commas etc.

Example:

We have seen 7. 

Wir haben 7 gesehen.

=>

We have seen 12. 

Wir haben 12. gesehen.

Do you get it in the latest update CTE 10.3.2 - Croissant?

@Igor. Not sure. Will test some more to check.
