I just ran into this, and there does seem to be something strange going on.  

Given that the setting for an individual security has the choice of "(default)"
"Price per share" or "Total for all shares", it seems it should be possible to
set the overall default.  However, I'll accept that the default is "price pre
share" and I can create a wishlist bug to allow changing it.

Cristian - I'm not sure why you point to the source from the old sourceforge
respository, although it looks like that section of code is still pretty much
the same.  However, I don't see that it shows the price mode can't be changed
after creation.  I know that may just be my lack of familiarity with the code -
but that "no chance to change" is under init2.  How does that differ from

With the current version (from git, maybe a few weeks old) I CAN change the
setting by editing an existing security, and it does change the behavior. 
Unfortunately, it does NOT change the label on the entry field in the ledger -
it still says "price/share" even though it does use the value as the total
price for all shares.   I was hunting for any related bugs when I found this
one.  The manual page you link to is just about creating an investment.  The
next page, about editing an investment, does not give any details about whether
or not you can change it later.  Perhaps I'll add some details to that page,
once this issue is settled.
