There are keyboard keys that control the clock while it is running.
Ensure that the clock display or the control panel is selected.
Then, these are are active:
|'m'||Will switch between the clock display being maximized or minimized.|
|spacebar||Start or stop the clock.|
|Up/Down Arrow||Will adjust the time remaining by 30 seconds. ( up or down )|
|a,s,d,f||Test the sounds (Warn, End Round, Break, End Session)|
You can select the monitor that displays the clock. This control is on the tab marked 'Options.' Select that page and use the 'Clock Monitor Select' control to choose the monitor you to use. Press 'm' to see the screen-sized clock.
The clock will retain settings from one use to the next. Hands per round, number of rounds, time per hand and to move are all saved for each of 12 users. The current user is selected by pressing one of the 'F' keys (F1 thru F12, above the keyboard). The current user number is shown in the caption over the control panel. The default user is 1, and most people will not need to change that. With multiple directors, different user numbers enable each to customize his clock's sounds, and other options.
Sound options are selectable on the tab 'Sounds.' Sounds used by the clock are found in WAV files included with your clock. (installed in a subdirectory named 'Sounds'.) You can add more sounds if you like.
The colors, font,
and size of the three lines displayed by the clock, and the background
color, can be changed on the tab 'Options'. This page also
allows use of the translation table, and seasonal color selection.
And, this page has the monitor selection panel.
Most changes take effect immediately. Press the 'm' key twice to redraw the display.
All of these changes will be saved and used on the next clock running.
The words used by the clock display can be changed to other languages using the Translate button. Pressing it will give you the chance to type expressions you would rather see on the clock into this form. You must complete all of the entries for the clock to work correctly. To activate the translation table, click on the word 'Inactive' above the column of new words. It will change to 'Active', and the clock will use these words. Remember: fill the table. Blank words will show up as blanks. To revert to the Enlish words, click on the 'Inactive' label over the word 'English.'
