displaying credit amounts (negative numbers)

On the commercial invoice, when we enter a negative number into a fees field (such as Other Charges), the leading minus sign is replaced with parentheses around the number. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Instead of (9,250), we want -9,250.
Problem Type: Export Forms
Version Number: Pro 7.X & Classic 6.X
Status: Closed
Solution: Standard accounting practices display negative numbers in parantheses rather than with a minus sign, which is how Shipping Solutions displays negative numbers on the invoice.

If you would like us to modify the display properties so negative numbers appear with a minus sign instead of the parentheses, please contact Shipping Solutions at 1-888-890-7447 for a quote for the customization.
