Decimal separator in Calc (mac OsX 10.7)

Hi, in my locale (italian) the default decimal separator is comma (,) both for numeric and currency formats. In the preference pane I changed numeric separator to point (.) since this setting is a standard in the scientific community and kept the comma (,) for currency. Unfortunately Calc is not able to seemly accept this setting (...like MSExcel does!) In fact it seems that in Calc one is "forced" to use locale settings "as a whole" without customizations. In there a way to work this around? Thanks. Andrea
