How to Open World Clock Preferences

Anuko World Clock comes with Preferences user interface that allows you to configure it. To open Preferences double-click on any clock. If a double-click behavior is different for you (World Clock allows you to change what double-clicks do), use a single right-click to open a menu and select Options - General in it.

Any sub-menu under Options will open Preferences, each on a different page. For now, let's just use General. It is a configuration page with most common options.

The left part in Preferences is for navigation between many configuration options. It allows you to select a particular scope or area of settings. For example, to configure time synchronization parameters select Time synchronization node (3rd from top), to configure calendar options select Calendar and so on.

For the purpose of this topic we are interested in the bottom 3 nodes, which represent 3 different clocks for London, Wellington, and Vancouver. Compare this with the picture on top to see that we have these clocks showing up in taskbar.

Manual configuration process works this way: for an existing object we select it in the left part in Preferences and then configure it in the right part (content in this part will change depending on which node you select on the left). You can also add new objects using the Add button in bottom-left of Preferences or from the right-click menu shown on the first picture (see the "Add clock" menu option).

The Add, Remove, Move Up, and Move Down buttons below the navigational pane in Preferences are context-sensitive. It means that they get enabled or disabled depending on where you are in the navigational tree and will do different things according to the selected context. Currently, they are disabled because we are on the General page and there is nothing to add, delete, or move in this context. But when you select a clock object (try clicking London) the buttons become enabled. It means that when we work with clocks, we can add new ones, delete existing ones, or move them up and down in the tree.

To select an object you have to click on the label (not on the checkbox). Checkboxes are used for disabling and enabling features that objects provide. On the picture above, we have enabled 3 clocks. If you don't want to see a particular clock, un-mark its checkbox or remove the clock object altogether with the Remove button.

Complex objects such as clocks have many settings that are impossible to configure on a single page. Such objects have a little box on the left in the navigational tree that has either a "+" or a "-" sign in it. It is used to expand or collapse the node. Click on it to see it working. On the picture above, we have London clock node fully expanded while Wellington and Vancouver clock nodes are fully collapsed. Another thing to mention here is that the Alarms subnode under London is not expandable because we have not set any alarms yet. It will become expandable once you add a new alarm.
