Locale styling

  • numbers in body text— Allows you to choose how numbers are shown: numbers only, letters only or any combination of both. In view of the fact that not every number should be affected by this (e.g. a year), this setting only affects the following numbers:
  • long dates — Allows you to choose how long dates (see below under preferred date style) should be shown. A distinction can be made for the long date style for each separate language.
  • short dates — Allows you to choose how short dates (see below under preferred date style) should be shown. A distinction can be made for the short date style for each separate language.
  • preferred date style — Allows you to choose whether dates should be shown in the short date or the long date style.
  • time — Allows you to choose how the time printed in the header or footer should be styled. This does not affect time manually typed in in a clause or datafield. A distinction can be made for each separate language.
  • currency symbol — Allows you to choose whether the currency symbol or the currency abbreviation (e.g. EUR, USD) should be shown for a currency type datafield. A distinction can be made for each separate language.
  • order — Allows you to choose whether the currency symbol or abbreviation should be positioned before or after the amount for a currency type datafield. A distinction can be made for each separate language.
  • decimals style — Allows you to choose between the metric or the imperial style of writing decimals in numbers. Affects the same sorts of numbers as the numbers in body text setting (see above).  A distinction can be made for the short date style for each separate language.
  • decimals— Allows you to determine the number of decimals shown for floating point type numbers. Affects the following numbers:
    • floating point number type datafields
    • numbers that are the result of a calculcation made between curly brackets ({}), such as a number type datafield divided by a fixed number or a data-expression.
  • quotation marks — Allows you to determine which type of quotation marks is used in the text. A distinction can be made for the quotation marks style for each separate language.
  • spaces style in French — If your ClauseBase server supports French, allows you to choose whether a non-breakable space should be added before a colon, semi-colon, question mark or exclamation mark. This is activated by default.
