That is simply NOT the same. The spreadsheet prints as many decimal cases as
you want. If you choose to hide them on screen you OBVIOUSLY do not expect
them to be printed.

Conversely, if they are VISIBLE on screen, then it is a serious BUG that
they are NOT printed, and there IS data loss when you transmit a PDF
containing data TRUNCATED by the software.

If TDF does not consider this DATA LOSS, then that is their problem.
