wrong handling of space in quantity datatype
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

from contact the dev team page:

"When I edit a number datatype with the GUI, the number is in the UI written like 6 627 (it's the normal format in Swedish), but I cannot save after I have changed it to the value I desired (6 618). This since the UI does not accepts any spaces when I save. I have to remove the space between the two sixes. This is very natural, but why is there a cosmetic space in the number when I edit in the first place?"

Update after last night's update: "Now it looks even worse. Now I sometimes read 6 618 and that is even worse to edit."

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
