Hello, I'd like to know how can i change the number format (for currency) in Odoo. At the very least, i want the number formating in POS to be like the following:

  • Originally, to write 10,000 it is written as 10000.00 (it is hard to read this)

  • Desired output is $ 10,000.00

How can i do  this ? Thanks for your help.

In the menu /Settings/Translations/Languages select the language you are using and change the field "Separator Format". The value need to be the number of digits that conform a group after insert a "Thousands Separator" character. Read the tooltip of that field for more info
