German localization: quick fix for line spacing display bug

Post by Chris » 2006-09-24 09:33:06

Hi everybody! (Especially German users in this case … ;)

There's a minor but annoying "bug" in NWE's German localization which causes the line spacing in the drawer to be displayed a "01 lin" or "02 lin" etc. (instead of "1.0 lin" etc.). It seems this can be easily fixed by locating the text file "Contents/Resources/German.lproj/localizable.strings" inside the NWE package. Open it with a text editor, look for these lines …

"_Line Spacing: %g lin" = "Zeilenabstand: %g lin";
"_Line Spacing: %g pt" = "Zeilenabstand: %g pt";

… and insert the following afterwards …

"#.# lin;0 lin;-#.# lin" = "0.# lin;0 lin;-0.# lin";
"#.# pt;0 pt;-#.# pt" = "#.# pt;0 pt;-#.# pt";

Now the line spacing should be displayed correctly.

(If you do this, you do it at your own risk—YMMV! ;)

HTH!

Chris
