Just ran across this post.

You should be aware, that the NoteTab Calc function has an option to specify the number of decimals, by default 2:

^$Calc(calculation;numDecimals)$

Hopefully Eric will retain this option, when Eric adds scientific notation.

I too am in favor of adding comma-grouping to large numbers. Though a clip could do this fairly easily, using the steps:

left-pad the number to a string length divisible by 3,

split the string to length 3,

assign result to a newline-delimited array,

replace the newlines with commas.

Cheers
