    Default Wait! Comma expected!

    HI,

    I want to report a bug about the "Wait" command in Logicator. The correct separator for a length of time shorter than a second is the comma, but in the menu, a point is proposed causing an error message.

    What?

    A point works fine and a comma is ignored. For example, if 0,1 is entered then the produced BASIC command is pause 1000 but if 0.1 is entered then the code is pause 100. The same happens even if a foreign language (i.e. not English) is set.

    This is a known issue that has already been be fixed for the next release.

    The software currently uses the English format '1.0' but if you use that on a French/German locale of Windows the operating system expects '1,0' and so there is a mismatch.

    A workaround is to use the 'BASIC' cell and a pause command = e.g. 0,5 (French/German format) = pause 500

    Thank you for the answer.

    Our Pcs are configured in "French".
    We are frequently using the numeric keypad, and the key with the point stands for the decimal point for most of the software (Excel, ...), although it is converted in a comma on the screen.
