Why does the table command change display format?

I set the display format to "short" because I want that 4 digits are shown after the decimal point, like 0.3124. I crate a "table" which should display the numbers as such. But the table shows 5 digits after the decimal point. Where am I going wrong?

Where you are going wrong is in expecting table() objects to be designed to be display objects. They are not designed for display, they are designed for calculation.
table()'s disp() method has its own rules about what formats to use. It will display 4 decimal places if your current format setting is shorte
