Description gyaroslav 2003-10-06 06:43:59 UTC
If i'm write % in formula it's dont displayed in OLE window in document. It's should be bug, I know. Maybe it happens because parser thinking i'm trying to write special symbol (keyword) or comment. I'm surf out a help system and don't found how i can write percent symbols in my formulas. Where is should be some control keyword like "%percent" to show percent in formula.

Confirmed in 1.1/Linux and changed priority to P3. Workaround (and perhaps fix?): - Tools > Catalog - choose Special, click Edit - in the Symbol box, enter 'percent' (or 'pct', or whatever you want), without the quotes - in the grid, select the percentage sign (top row) - click Add, OK, Close you can now use %percent (%pct, ...) to enter the % sign.

Put it into quotation marks. Example 15"%"=0.15
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2003-10-16 10:43:16 UTC
As Regina mentioned, use the quotes for this. MRU->TL: Would be a "nice to have", if the parser could recognize expressions like 10% by itself (more intuitive than 10"%"). So please implement for successor of OO 2.0.
Comment 4 gyaroslav 2003-10-17 06:45:24 UTC
If i'm use 15"%" then the 15 will be in italic style and percent sign will be in normal style. It is logical error. If I'm use Special>Edit>Symbol box, enter 'percent' than all works fine. How not advanced people should do such things? Can you place a percent sign on palette and place %percent keyword than user press this?
