How do I suppress the scale factor of a matrix?

In matlab, if the largest element of a matrix is larger than 10^3 or smaller than 10^-3 , MATLAB applies a common scale factor for the short and long formats. How do I suppress this scale factor so that the matrix is displayed with every element as short/long format?

format long g


Although this still changes number like 0.000000001 to scientific notation rather than keep everything as original, it works well for large number.
format short g
Should do what you're trying to do. Suppress the scale factor and only show approx 5 digits.
