Can HP 16C display leading zeros for binary and hex?
Hi folks,

Been away for a while.

Now I have a question which I could not solve from reading the 16C user manual.

Can I get the 16C to show leading zeros?

I want to see the leading zeros for binary, such as 0001 0101 instead of just 1 0101 and same for hex, 0F

Possible?

Thanks.

Look at the HP-16C Owner's Handbook Page 36
Code:
Flag 3 controls the display of leading zeros. When it is set,  zeros to the left of the highest nonzero digit are displayed.  When it is clear (the default condition), the display of leading zeros is suppressed. (Note that leading zeros are always  suppressed in Decimal and Floating-Point Decimal modes.)
Solution: [g] [SF] [3]

Many thanks! I kept reading the sections on Display formats but somehow overlooked this.
