Creating New Token using

HI, I created a new token using, I followed the tutorial even though the page is very intuitive. however, after creating the token and adding the contract address to my wallet the total number of tokens is Zero. I checked in the explorer and can see that instead of my chosen number of the total supply (500000000) that only 6538 tokens were minted but yet they are not available to me. I can see them in my wallet and cant transfer them.
I am thinking maybe I am missing something, can anyone help??

Hello t​ ​,

Thanks for writing in.

What was the number of decimals you specified for your token? Try with less decimals, like 8 or so, instead of the maximum 18

ok. thanks, I used 18 decimals, will use fewer decimals now and come back to tell you the outcome. thanks a lot.
