Decimal separator changes from comma to point when exporting as PDF

Hi, 

 

I'm using Excel 2019 on Mac (v16.63.1), and since last week I'm experiencing this problem: when exporting a sheet as a PDF and selecting the option "Best for electronic distribution/accessibility (uses Microsoft Corporations' online services)", the decimal commas are automatically replaced with points. This doesn't happen when I manually change the option for "Best for printing".

 

I checked the language and settings of my computer (French [Canada] + uses the comma as a decimal separator), I also uninstalled and reinstalled Office, and the problem remains.

 

Since the problem occurs when selecting the option "Best for electronic distribution/accessibility (uses Microsoft Corporations' online services)", I'm wondering if it can be a problem on your side.

 

Could you please help me with this?
