I assume this must be a new XaraLX specific problem presumably caused by
some bit of code having been disabled or ported somewhat loosely as
there have been German versions of most of the windows versions of
Camelot and I don't believe these suffer from the problems you mention.
It sounds most likely that some function for converting a string into a
float (or possibly a function that reads a double value from a control)
has been changed during the porting work so either it is not trying to
do anything special or is not using the correct settings for the locale.

Subject: [XaraXtreme-dev] Numeric values and internationalisation
I have big problems entering values into editable fields because it
seems that the values are displayed in local representation but not
For instance, the line spacing of a newly created text object is
displayed as 100,00% which is the correct representation on a German
machine. Changing this to 120,00% and pressing Return results in
12000,00% being applied and displayed. Apparently, the decimal comma
is ignored when reading the value. So, to reliably enter a value on a
German machine, the user has to remove the decimal comma manually.
Even more confusingly, some fields are linked, so changing one causes
the other to be read as well. For instance, the current position of
the selection may be displayed as X: 200,00 Y: 300,00 - changing the X
position to 210 (carefully removing the comma) and pressing Return
results in X: 210,00 Y: 30000,00 to be applied because the Y field is
interpreted as well. So, to change either the X or Y position, the
user has to edit both values and remove the commas.
