In V3.0.1, I don't see the problem you are having. Eg, one of the
TraditionalForm cells looks like: \!\(\*FormBox[
      HoldForm], "==", 
        PrintPrecision->16], " ", 
      RowBox[{\(sinh\^\(-1\)\), "(", 
            PrintPrecision->16], " ", "p"}], ")"}]}]}],

Perhaps 3.0.0 did not set PrintPrecision?  If this is the case, this is
a general frontend option whose default value is 6.  You can set this
to a higher value at the global, notebook, cell, or selection level.

I hope this helps,
