Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 102499] Cell formatted as percent: inconsistent input handling

Ah, I see what you mean now.

IME stands for Input Method Editor on Windows OS's or just IM on Linux.

IME is needed to input Japanese characters(or other Asian characters)
and it allows you to toggle between Direct Input Mode/Convert Mode.

Direct Input Mode works the same as regular inputting method on English
keyboards. It enters texts and numbers with single byte characters and
confirms every input on every key stroke.

Where as in Convert Mode, texts are entered with double byte characters,
and a dotted line appears underneath those texts to indicate that the
Convert Mode is active. Press Space key to convert texts into something
else. Press Enter to confirm the input.

It also applies to numbers as well when Convert Mode is active. Numbers
are in double byte, and a dotted line appears underneath. Press Enter to
confirm the input.

I think it is handled in a similar manner to the case on Comment 3 of
this Bug which is "Several Numbers that need further calculation will
be handled as if you change formatting afterwards." since one Enter
is needed to end the conversion process, and another Enter to confirm
the input to that cell. (Or I may be wrong)

If you don't mind, could you check to see if you have IM installed on
your system via "System Settings" -> "Language Support" -> "Install/
Remove Languages" and if there is anything else other than English,
then you should be able to choose what IM to use at "Keyboard input
method system"

Alt+Shift to turn IME on, and Shift+CapsLock to toggle Convert Mode.
However, this is for Windows using English keyboard(Japanese keyboard
has specific key for this) so you might have to specify what key to
use on Linux.

If you have no IME installed, then I can only hope someone with IME
would confirm my case... Either way, thank you for taking your time
for this. Much appreciated.
