When typing Persian/Farsi digit strings containing a point/dot (.) in between the digits, the point/dot (.) automatically changes to comma (,) in Word 2007 on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. For example, typing 33.88 changes arbitrarily to 33,88! How is it possible to prevent this and keep it as typed?
My settings in: 1- Word Options > Advanced > Numeral: Context; 2- Control panel > Region and Language > Format: Additional Settings > Customize Format > Numbers > Use native digits: Context.
Thank you
