Option 1

This is already fixed on Tableau Cloud. For Tableau Server, upgrade to Tableau Server 2022.3 or later.

Option 2

Use Server rendering as a workaround.

Type "?:render=false" at the end of the view's URL.
For example: http://localhost/views/Supplies/MyView?:render=false

Option 3

Adjusting the custom format to include * fronting it.

For example: *##,#0,,;*-##,#0,,
