Add an option to change the visualization format that are in scientific notation for decimal values.

Add an option to change the values ​​that are in scientific notation for decimal values.

For Example, in the mass properties:

     1.0e-3 to 0.001

    Mass = 1.0634408e+07 to 10634408  KILOGRAM

Using only multiples of 3 for the exponent might also be a nice option, to align with 'engineering notation'.

e.g. 12.6e+03 kg is clearly 12.6 tonnes; 76.3e-03 mm is 76.3 microns (um)

Thus there could be three options:

  • scientific (current display)
  • engineering (multiples of 3)
  • 'none' (no exponent)

'Engineering' might need two variants for leading zeroes, one which displays 0.123e+00 and one which displays 123e-03 (is there a standard for this anywhere else?).

It would be great to be able to control the format of the values as well as the format of the output in general; since the columns are wrapped in these reports, it makes the data unusable in a spreadsheet without a lot of manual manipulation. PTC, can we get an updated status, or any response at all?
