Summary0001627: Dash instead of minus in dialogs/fields
DescriptionWhenever you wish to enter a minus, it does not use minus but a dash. This has the implication that you can not type negative values naturally on a keyboard, but must copy and paste the "minus sign" from a field where it is present.
Steps To ReproduceFor example

1. Create a new sketch.
2. Add a line.
3. Add a horizontal vertical distance constraint to the line and make sure its positive.
4. Try setting it to a negative value.

Seems to be the same. I was also using the Swedish locale.

J├╝rgen, please add the alternative minus (\xe2\x88\x92) to the parser.
