Localization numeric formatting (periods and commas)

In the Netherlands, as well as a lot of other countries, we use commas to indicate the decimal place. We also use periods to seperate thousands, but only for currencies.

 

I have a PowerPivot datasource in which formatting is correctly displayed. However Power BI graphics (e.g.: Table and Card) always seem to display numbers in US/UK format, independent of browser settings. Can I change this somehow, or is this not possible yet?

Re: Localization numeric formatting (periods and commas)

Hey Guys, 

When I use the Format Function, commas are replaced by dots (Regional Settings already set for Chile).

For Instead:

Measure = Format(Calculate(sum(xx), Filters...), "#,##0;(#,##0)")

If I take out the format function numbers appear with a dot  for thousands, on the contrary, i get commas. 

Please have you got any solution for this problem?
