Number presentation format accepts character "E/e"



When adding a textbox and setting the presentation format as "Number" in Presentation Tab in the Editable format, the text input field accepts the character "e" (upper or lower case), but all other non-number characters are blocked.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Section and set the editable format to "Number."
2. Input e, E and any other character. It accepts "e" and "E" but not other characters.

Root Cause

This behavior is by design.


The character "e" is allowed as a number to support scientific "e" notation.
