The setup of the thousands separator is located under: Settings > Translations > Languages.

For each language, you can set a different separator format (and few other formatting options like the dates format or the text direction).

3 options modify the format of a number:

  • Separator format: number of digits between separators
  • Thousands Separator: the character displayed at each separation
  • Decimal Separator: character displayed before the decimals

If you use [3,3,3,-1], the number 1232345.01 will be displayed 1,232,345.01. However, the number 1237891232345.01 will be displayed 1237'891'232'345.01.

The -1 at the end of the list means 'stop the separation'. The value 0 can be used to mean 'repeat the last group at infinite'.

So the correct form for a separator between each 3 digits whatever the number of digits is: [3, 0].

Under Settings > Languages > Your favorite language you will find two fields: thousands separator which is , in English by default, but to make it work you also need to set the Separator Format. [3,3,3,-1] will make sure e.g. that 1232345.01 EUR appears as 1,232,345.01 EUR. The tooltip of the Separator Format will show you that the separator is fully customizable. Apparently, some countries prefer 4 instead of 3 digits for separation.

Please see my response, the format [3,3,3,-1] is not correct when the number of digits is > 12.

I found that by doing exactly this, a number such as 108,253 is changed automatically into 108 when creating accounting entries. I used [3,3,3,-1], "," as decimal and "." as thousands separator.

That is because I used the . as decimal and , as thousands separator and you do the opposite. The precision of your accounting entries depends on the Decimal Precision in the Technical Features.

For those who are looking format prices in emails templates, this worked for me:   (You should get prices like:  9,000.00  )
