When I confirmed a first segment looking like this :

0.40 CHF

all the following segments with the same format were automatically changed into this

9:00 CHF
11:00 CHF

The result is even worse, as it’s now

09:00 CHF

What should I do for Studio apply the same original format to all those prices without changing the dot into a semicolon?

Thank you very much in advance !

Studio has problems with some number formats. If you cannot find appropriate settings, I would suggest that you let Studio "do its thing" and then run a custom regex to correct the format (this is what I usually do).

Thank you Anthony,
That’s exactly what I did in the end.

Strange enough though, in the other files from the same project Studio handled the prices just like it had to, although nothing had changed in the meantime.
