Convert Decimal Degrees to Degrees Minutes Seconds
Is there a key sequence that converts decimal degrees (DD) to degrees minutes seconds (DMS)?
Going from DMS to DD is just entering the angle using the degree minute second symbols and pressing the enter key. I do not seem to be able to find a key sequence to go from DD to DMS. I know how to calculate it manually, but I am surprised there is no builtin method to do it.

Key in your number in DD or DMS format, press Enter and then [Shift] [a b/c] to toggle between DD and DMS format.
Note: this works only in Home mode, not in CAS mode.
