complex numbers convert rectangular and polar form

HP Recommended
HP Prime G2

I am thinking about purchasing a HP Prime G2 and am currently evaluating if it fits my needs.

One thing I need is a fast and simple method to convert complex numbers between rectangular and polar form in rad and deg.

I am used to 2nd F. 8 and 9 on my Sharp. I installed the HP Prime Emulator for my PC and tried a few things.

I see how to enter complex numbers but not how to quickly convert a result from one form to another. 

Can this easily be done? Idealy with 1-2 keypresses, not using the CONVERT function.

Hi!, @Durpex :

You can convert quickly from polar to rectangular and viceversa complex numbers, if see this Spanish Language video …

Kind Regards !.

With the complex number as the last item in your history on the HOME screen, press the shift * keys for the angle symbol. This toggles back and forth.
