Calc formatting percents with decimals bugged?

I want 0.05 to show as “5%”
I want 0.055 to show as “5.5%”
I would expect the custom formatting of “#.#%” to work, but I get “5.%” and “5.5%”.

It seems the decimal placeholder is treating the percent symbol as a valid digit, and thus displaying a period when it shouldn’t

With Russian locale, which uses , as decimal separator, #,#% gives expected result (5% and 5,5% for 0.05 and 0.055 resp.); with English (USA) locale, #.#% works (5% and 5.5%). I am testing with Version: (x64)

You don’t give your system and version info.

Excellent, there’s hope! I’m on 4.4, and I have no excuse or idea why updating wasn’t the first thing I tried

Yes, I reproduce your problem with Version:
Build ID: de093506bcdc5fafd9023ee680b8c60e3e0645d7

4.4 is way outdated…

Hello @Spaz102,

try if format code "0.#%" works.

Unfortunately, it still puts a decimal right before the percent sign: “5.%”
