1. Does someone have a manual of how to use variables in xot?
2. Is it possible to synchronise pages in the media lesson by using variables?

There's a brief explanation of how to use variables here:
v3.4 release notes
I'm hoping to write a more comprehensive guide soon.

Variables don't currently work as synch points in the media lesson page. You can use them as answers in MCQs and other question types though

tnx.
In variables the notation is 234.456.
In the Netherlands we use in that place no point, but the comma: 234,567
Can I change that somewhere for my LO's?
And what does SF exactly do?

SF is for significant figures which if set to 3 would change 368249 to 368000 or 3.362 to 3.36

There's no way to automatically change a decimal point to a decimal comma - I'll look into this for the next release
