|Summary||0019467: Report summary with "-" character is easier to read than "0" character|
In menu summary, it is easier for user to read and focus if the "0" (zero) character are changed with "-" character. There is also inconsistency in format : summary by status already used "-" character (which is nice to read) while the other summary are not.

The origin of displaying "-" is 0001890
Now. The point about visibility may still be valid.
There are some side effects when changing
Furthermore, in a real life scenario after working some time with Mantis, you will hardly see that many
@dregad as you are the one who set status to
right, using a non-number messes with any workflow involving copying the data from the broser into a spreadsheet, etc
But if we get to implement filter within summary, reduced datasets may be more common, eg: only resolved issues, or specific handler.
i agree, "won't fix" exactly as requested.
Acknowledged means just that - not a confirmation that it's scheduled for implementation or anything. I have no objections if you want to close as won't fix. Personally I'm fine with using "0". That being said, as suggested by cproensa, there may be other ways to improve readability.
As for the problem of copy/pasting the data into Excel / LibreOffice or whatever if we use dashes instead of zeroes, i think the right approach in this case would be to provide a way to export the table in numeric form. But we should ask the question of the cost-benefit of implementing such a feature.
