There is a similar feature in Adobe InDesign to use 'native numerals' — 
and also localised punctuation style — based on script and language 
selection, but this can be turned off in Preferences. Check to see 
whether there is a way to disable this in Coreldraw's preference 
settings. If not, I think you will need to contact Corel regarding this, 
and request that they make this auto-conversion optional.
