Description Ron Yorston 2018-05-03 08:54:23 UTC
Description of problem:

Asset prices in accounts are displayed as 'M + N/D', e.g. '1 + 3845/5897', unless the transaction is selected, when it's displayed as a decimal (1.652026).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

It's inconsistent.  The vast majority of prices are displayed as fractions but a few (e.g. 1.475, 1.39) are decimals.

Additional info:

Previous versions of gnucash always displayed prices as decimals.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2018-05-03 13:50:53 UTC
- what locale?
- what pricing source?

Comment 2 Ron Yorston 2018-05-03 14:17:22 UTC
Locale is en_GB.

Prices were either entered by hand or, when a transaction was being repeated, by adjusting the number of shares or amount and then selecting 'Price' in the 'Recalculate Transaction' dialog.

Comment 3 Ron Yorston 2018-10-06 08:35:00 UTC
Fixed in 3.3. Though for some reason the developers have left the default as displaying fractional prices. To revert to decimals go to Edit->Preferences->General and check 'Force Prices to display as decimals'.
