Hello everyone, my name is Samuel, I'm from Brazil, we split decimals using commas.
I have the HP 12C Platinum application for my iPhone 6s to take an online course called "Introduction to HP-12C" (Introducing the HP-12C) in my work.
To complete the course, I have to answer some questions using the HP 12C. But it's really confusing to use the decimal as a dot and see a comma used as a separator.
Could anyone help me how can I change the decimal separator to comma in the application?
I already tried changing it by pressing the dot button while pressing the MENU button, as in the physical HP 12C, but nothing happened.

It's interesting to see people posting on the HP laptop, desktop and printer forums regarding calculators.
I also wanted to mention that as an European, I disagree with how North and South Americans note down numbers and dates.
Regardless, after an intensive Google search and several drinks, I managed to find a short video for you:
I hope you find this useful.

I am very grateful krzemien but I am talking about this app, for iOS, which I have bought for my iPhone 6s. Does anyone know how to help me?
I have downloaded a free version of a parallel app called Touch RPN, and I am totally regretful of my bought, if I knew that, I would bought the Touch RPN, which in the free version is doing pretty well on my necessities.

Thank you for clearing things up, I was thinking you were using the actual calculator, I had no clue this app existed.
I looked on the link you posted and it does give us a link to the "support page for this app". Strangely, this brings us to the support page for the actual 12C calculator.
And according to page 17 of the user manual:
You should be able to change those settings. Perhaps the developers did not implement this feature for the app?
Personally, I would leave a review for the app mentioning this and in many cases, the developers will review and reply to your comment or implement the change in future versions.

Tap the f key and then the actual number display. You will get “number format” and “about” at the bottom of the screen. Tap “number format” and you have three options. Select the one you like and then tap anywhere outside the selection box. Bamo... just like that.
