When doing a query, QC changes the system setting for decimal separator to a point. In Europe, the decimal separator is a comma. This is clearly unacceptable.

I set the type and severity rather high, because while it's not a showstopper for QC itsels, it could actually cause a lot of problems if you do other work that relies on this setting to remain on comma, for example working with huge amounts of data in Excel, like I do.

Could we please have this fixed promptly?

It cost us a lot of time to track this one back to QualityCentral, since the problem may not become apparent until hours after you used QC, so I agree completely with type/severity/motivation. It seems to happen right at startup of QC, even before a query is submitted.

I do not get this problem anymore in, but it is not yet reported to be fixed.
