Hi Russell,

I was initially hoping that there would be some kind of mode string that
would directly control this (perhaps something like `;I’ or `;J’ for
rectangular format, or `;P’ for polar format), but that isn't supported.
I don't quite see how to use your `;%f’ suggestion for this, though.
Can you elaborate?

I also tried messing around with org-calc-default-modes to no avail.

Thanks,

Rob.
