You can choose to show from four to eight significant digits when the
program presents the results of analyses. The default value is six, which is a reasonable approximation of the resolution
and accuracy of most data. Not all of the numbers shown in analysis
windows conform to the user-set number of significant digits (for example,
many mean values are shown with more digits).
| The significant figures setting affects only the display of results.
It does not influence the precision of data
storage or of internal mathematical calculations.|
