I'm trying to configure my new (purchased ~ 1 week ago) HP Prime for scientific or engineering notation and I'm finding that regardless of what mode I use it continually outputs values in standard format.
Take, for instance, the calculation 5e-6 * 2e3. I would expect the result to be 1.0e-2 or something similar. Instead, the calculator, without fail, gives 0.01. Switching to 'Scientific' or 'Engineering' modes in the CAS settings appears to do nothing. I have tried modifying the 'Simplify' and 'Exact' settings as well, with no success. Including calculations out to e-3 print out as 0.00xyzzz, which is a tedious and error-prone way of doing things.
I have reproduced the issue in the Virtual Calculator; the current CAS settings and examples are given below.
How do I correct the output so that these values display 4.37e7 and 1.00e-2, respectively?

Hello, and Welcome to the HP Support Community!
We used to have a dedicated Calculator section on this Forum, but it is being relocated. Here's the standard reply that used to be on top of most of the pages here:
