Changing numpad comma for dot

I'm using macOS 10.15.5 with a spanish keyboard in which the numpad has a comma instead of a dot. I was able to replace the behaviour in the while system, including Rider.

However, earlier today the behaviour was reversed only in Rider. When I press the numpad comma key (which should remap into a dot because of my system settings), Rider prints a comma instead of a dot.

This behaviour starting happening out of the blue. Any ideas on why this might be happening or how to reverse the behaviour?

Could you please clarify how you did redefine "," with "." in your environment? I tried to reproduce this with "System Preferences > Language & Region > Advanced" but "." is not inserted nor in Rider nor in any other application.

Thank you in advance.

I modified the file DefaultKeyBindings.dict file under Library/KeyBindings and added this line:
"#," = ("insertText:", ".");

For last couple days, however, Rider has been ignoring this setting

Hello Antonio,

Do I understand it right that all other applications use "." instead of "," on the Spanish keyboard?

Could you please share the entire content of the file DefaultKeyBindings.dict?
