Re: Displaying Numbers in Non-Scientific Format

To take care of all numbers presented:

On Windows,  Menu Edit -> Appearance Tab -> Numbers -> Formatting

1. Check the Enable automatic number formatting box
2. Digit Block Separator: Thin Comma or Comma
3. Decimal Point: Period
4. Digit block size:
Left: 3  Right: 5

5. Min before breaking into blocks:
Left: 3  Right: inf

Number of digits to be displayed in output: 20

The number of digits to be displayed is tricky.  It would be really nice if they were to allow number for left and right of decimal place.

Subject: [mg119544] Displaying Numbers in Non-Scientific Format

Hi everyone,

What is the simplest way to display output in non-scientific notation?  I have descriptive statistics that I would like to display as 13,957,636.8843 (despite the meaninglessness of the digits to the right of the decimal) instead of 1.39576 x 10^6?

Much obliged,
