Decimal Separator Compatibility

If the decimal separator in the current system language setting is incompatible with Imposition Studio, an error will be triggered, and Imposition Studio will quit. This is due to Imposition Studio requiring a period (.) or dot as the decimal separator. To resolve this issue, you need to adjust the decimal separator settings in the system configuration and then reopen Imposition Studio.


Please follow the instructions below to adjust the system language settings to make them compatible with Imposition Studio.
