The status bar in Surfer displays the x,y location of your cursor on the page, as well as the z value of that location if you have a grid-based map. To change the amount of decimal places that display for those coordinates (or to see the full number if it is displaying in exponential format):
- Click File | Options.
- In the navigation tree on the left, click User Interface.
- In the Map Coordinate Format section on the right, expand either Linear coordinates if you're using projected coordinates or Spherical coordinates (degrees) if you're using lat/long coordinates.
- Increase the Significant figures or Decimal digits value to the number of significant figures you want to see in your status bar.
- Click OK.
The status bar should now display the coordinates with the number of significant figures you want to see.
