Thousand and Decimal separator changed in PBI Service Report 2023-04-11



Since the latest update of the Power BI Web Service console, the thousand and decimal separators display is in EN-US format only.


However, we have to provide our report users with data in FR-CA format, since we are a business located in Québec.


Here's what is displayed in the web service:



And here's what it should be like (and how it was displayed prior to today). This sreenshot is from the PBI Desktop .pbix file :



All the settings in the web browsers and in the source .pbix file are pointing to regional, which is FR-CA.


Could you please investigate about this issue?


Thank you
