Summary0002103: Arch: Dimensions jumping by 10e3 on german localization
DescriptionEntered standard-values for width and height in the arch-settings are multiplied by 10e3 for defaults and again when drawing.
Steps To ReproduceEnter value width in Menu Edit -> Settings -> Arch -> Standardvalues: 200,00 mm
Save and close.
See them change when choosing e.g. icon "wall": width: 200 m.
Start drawing, see the value change to 200 km
Draw a wall, measure it with the ruler: width is 200 km
Additional InformationThis happens on german systems with separators points for thousands and comma for decimals, where 2000 mm is equal to 2.000,00 mm.
Changing the language or localization is no option. Not only because of being a workaround and no solution, but most CAD-users are using other localized software-programs - and are localized in their communication.

per @wmayer in
> The problem is not the input field. The problem is in The passed text is in C locale and the input field class removes group separators for internal purposes. To fix this the passed text must be conform to the OS locale settings. You can do this with QLocale.toString.
