World Clock Time Table
World Clock has 2 tools for time conversion between timezones:
- Time Table - displays a selected 24-hour period as a table for several locations.
- Time Converter- displays one selected instance of time for all configured clocks.
This page describes Time Table. To launch it, right-click on a clock and select the Time table

Rearranging Columns Order
To rearrange columns in Time Table remove them first and then add cities in the desired order. New columns are added to the right of already existing columns.
Changing Time Format
Time Table uses time format as defined in your system. For example, if your system is set for 24 hour time, Time Table will show the time in 24 hours format. You can change this format via manual editing of World Clock initialization file
To do this, introduce timeformat
key with a desired value in [username:timetable]
section. For example:
Here are some examples of acceptable values:
24 hours - 24 hour time formatter, equivalent to "H:mm".
12 hours - 12 hour time formatter, equivalent to "h:mm tt".
Default - time format matching or closely resembling the format in user locale.
24/12 hour setting and the value of time separator are taken from user locale.
Seconds are not used.
HH:mm - 24 hour time format with a leading zero for hours.
In addition to these values, you can use other time formats. Some of them are described here
