Priority: Low Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Chart Version: Unspecified
Severity: Minor Keywords: AU, patch
Cc: gonzalo, DeepakMuddha Distribution/OS: Unspecified

Error when inputting value with preceding "$" causes a problem - Invalid value The value must be a number (integer or decimal) - the wording is too advanced for primary school students to understand, recommend implementing a filter to prevent such vales from being entered

I suppose we need to strip out all non-numerics and try to make a sensible conversion, e.g., if the user enters 1m for 1 meter and then 1cm for one centimeter, we'd need to convert to 0.01. Not easy. In the short term, if there are suggestions for an easier to understand error message, I am all ears.
