Comma instead of Dot

Hi there,
Is it possible to change a dot to a comma in a TC window?

Hello,

Can you give more details about what you want? From what you say, I'd suggest the "find and replace" function (Ctrl+H), to replace all points with commas, but that may not be what you mean.

Hi!
No, it doesn't work in the TC window. Amazon wants from me 0:00:00,00 instead of 0:00:00.00 which is standard in Aequisub.

The mentioned quote is here: The captions file contains an invalid timecode. Timecodes must be in the format of hh:mm:ss,mmm with a comma between ss and mmm.

Hum, I don't use Amazon for subtitles.
Maybe a hint to help you, using notepad++:
Open your ass file (or the text you want to convert to Amazon format) in notepad++
Use Ctrl+H, activate the regular expression search mode, and use (without quotes)
find : "(\d:\d\d:\d\d)\.(\d\d)"
replace : "\1,\20"
Click on "replace all"
That will convert every text with a shape "0:00:00.00" in the file to a shape "0:00:00,000" (that will change the dot to comma and add a suffix "0" to the result).

This could be a workaround for you.

Hi!
When I convert (export) ass file into srt file it automatically converts dots into commas. But I can't understand why Amazon still asks to change dots to commas. I've already asked them.
