In Microsoft Word 2007, while typing in Arabic, all dots between digits change to commas.

I'm using Windows 7.

Word tries to be smart and does an auto-replace assuming you meant the thousandths separator, or a decimal point. You'll need to either edit - undo the auto-correct, or disable the auto-correct feature: Office - Word Options - Proofing - AutoCorrect Options

I cannot find anything related to decimal separators in those settings, but neither do I encounter the problem in the first place, on MS Word, on Win 7 Pro, Finnish versions. So I suppose this depends on Word language version. – Jukka K. Korpela Feb 22 '12 at 16:44
