Problem

After inputting values for a wall’s Height and Thickness parameters, the values are not taken into account when the wall is created. Instead of the entered values, extremely large numbers appear in the input field and are then used when the wall is drawn.

Background

The reason for this error is usually caused by using the same separators for both decimal points and digit groups. Generally, each separator is different. In Germany, the comma serves as the separator for decimal points, e.g. for the value 123,45. Digit groups are separated from one another using points, e.g. for larges numbers such as 1.234.567.

Solution

You can change the separators by adjusting the appropriate system settings.

  1. Close pCon.planner.
  2. Open the Windows Control Panel by clicking Start/Control Panel.
  3. Select Region and Language.
  4. Select the tab Formats in the opened dialog.
  5. Click the Additional Settings button at the bottom of the dialog.
  6. Switch to the Numbers tab.
  7. Within this tab, check whether the Decimal symbol and Digit grouping symbol separators are the same.
  8. If this is the case, proceed as follows:
  • Enter a comma for the option Decimal symbol.
  • Enter a point for the option Digit grouping symbol.

Note

The procedure described above is in reference to Windows 7. This may vary for other systems.
