This bug reports to my two prior bug reports of the scale dependent visibility of layer.

While editing the min/max values of the scale dependent visibility I experienced the following errors:

actual value: 1:5 000
editing the value to 1:5 0000 and pressing apply (which should result in 1:50 000);
however result: 1:5 000 (nothing changes!).
To change the value as desired to 1:50 000 you have to add the "0" right after the number "5" (1:50 000), which actually is the same as 1:5 0000!

Same happens if you want to reduce the scale from 1:5 000 to 1:500. After deleting the last "0" (1:5 00) and pressing apply the value is reset to 1:5 000. To changed the value to the desired 1:500 you have to delete the space betwenn "5" and "0". Also in this case, 1:500 should be the same as 1:5 00. It's just a matter of how the values are presented or formatted.

It's not a major bug but an annoying one.

I hope you can reproduce my bug.

kindly, Pascal
