Enter number without leading "0"

Is it possible to enter a number, such as 0.25, as “.25”? For example, in Page Setup, margins have to be entered as “0.25”, because if I try entering “.25”, the decimal point is ignored and it interprets the number as “25”.


In principle this can be done, of course, but in practice it’s tricky because of the way we’re handling multiple input types for measurements of different units.

Can you say what the specific reason is that we can’t start entry with a decimal point? What case does this handle?
