Error description

  • Problem description:??The Data Spread > Repeat function won't
    work if there is a negative value formatted with parentheses
    (e.g. (50)) in the value box, however     ??it does work if one
    changes it to a negative value with a negative sign (e.g. -50).
    This is a problem because when a user types in a negative value
    (-50) Contributor automatically converts it to be (50).
