OK, this is kind of a hack. It does allow you to use "," as decimal symbol, but it still does not inherit Windows Regional Settings.
I also need to be able to input date in format "d/m/yy", but when I do so, Spreadsheets switches between "d" and "m": if I enter "2/8/13" (2nd of August), it displays it as "8/2/13" (8th of February).
So, if I want dates to be displayed correctly in my language (day-month-year), I need to enter them incorrectly (month-day-year).
Am I missing some setting in Spreadsheet options maybe?

Change Number formatting

There is decimal separator in Spreadsheet settings. But that's just decimal separator. No thousand separator, $ is used for currency by default, dates only western etc. Everything should be used from regional settings, including currency symbol, unless another symbol is pre set in cell in spreadsheet file.  And Kingsoft Office should not change anything in system settings.

Also when pressing decimal separator button on numreical keypad Spreadsheet should always enter local decimal separator, not just dot or comma regarding  of selected keyboard layout.

I must add myself to the list.
I too am experiencing this issue, the software changes my regional settings for decimal from "," to "." and for thousands from "." to ",", effectively swapping them, also the date format becames different too.
Problem is it should get those as set by windows; so going back to any other program has those changed, which is bad. I'm sad to see it's an old lasting issue, about a year.
Your product compatibility is excellent, the interface is nice too, but it's not like someone would change the regional setting after any usage, and for what I know I don't see the need of having an office suite changing the regional setting upon startup.

I've got the same problem. Every time I open Spreadsheets, the regional settings of my system are changed (adds comma every third letter - FROM "123 456 789" to "123,456,789". I'm on a Norwegian Bokmål (nb) system, Windows 8.1. I've got the latest version of the Office suite.

This is a dealbreaker for me, because other operation critical software relies on the systems regional settings, which are changed every time I open a spreadsheet. (I haven't tried the word processor yet).

Why is this happening, and when can we expect it to get fixed? Other than this, the suite seems great, from what I've seen so far.

Recent version doesn't fix this de facto critical bug as well.
