Change comma to dot
« on: Dec 20, 2022, 21:30:33 PM »
I recieved a Revit model from a client that has been started on a computer with regional parameters set up with a comma as decimal separator.

Now, this causes me trouble on my computer, wich is configured with a dot.

All parameter values still have a comma, even if I use my workstation. I thought the decimal separator was to update itself automatically, but that is not the case. Old and new parts still get the comma. I can change them manually and then my formulas and tags and parameter sync in eVolve work. But it is absolutely not productive...

Anyone know where to change that? It looks like it is saved with the model.

Thanks

manage Tab > Project Units.. Right down at the bottom you have Decimal symbol / digit grouping:
Set this to the very top option.
