Technical Questions

  • The Clocks palette doesn’t appear at startup despite the “Always show palette at startup” option is selected. What can I do?

    The problem is due to the fact that World Clock Deluxe is hidden after it is opened automatically. Open System Preferences and click Users & Groups. Select your account in the list, click the Login Items tab, and make sure that the World Clock Deluxe checkbox in the Hide column is deselected.

  • Can I remove the World Clock Deluxe icon from the Dock?

    Yes, you can. Choose World Clock Deluxe > Preferences, click Advanced, and select the “Hide World Clock Deluxe icon in the Dock” option.

  • World Clock Deluxe crashes at launch after hiding the icon in the Dock. What can I do?

    World Clock Deluxe 4.16.1 or later solves this incompatibility with macOS 10.13.6 or later. You can download World Clock Deluxe on this page.

  • World Clock Deluxe displays wrong times. How can I reset them?

    Your problem may be due to the fact that your computer’s time zone is incorrectly set. Open System Preferences, click Date & Time, then click the lock icon to make changes. Click the Time Zone tab, click your location on the map, click the Closest City drop-down menu, then choose the city closest to your location. If you don’t use a network time server to automatically set the date and time, click the Date & Time tab and adjust your computer’s clock.

    If your computer’s time zone and clock are both correct but some of your clocks display wrong times, you should check each of them and, if it is showing an alternate text, verify that the associated city is correct. Open the Clocks pane and double-click clocks in the list. If their “Alternate text” field isn’t empty, make sure that the city selected in the list is correct.

  • World Clock Deluxe doesn’t use the system time format. What’s wrong?

    If clocks don’t use the system time format despite you have set them to use the “System Setting” format, you should make sure you have thoroughly customized times in the Language & Region (or Language & Text) pane of System Preferences.

    On macOS 10.9 Mavericks or later, open System Preferences, then click Language & Region. Click the Advanced button, then the Times tab. Edit the Medium time format so that it is consistent with the Short format.

    On macOS 10.8 Mountain Lion, open System Preferences, then click Language & Text. Click the Region tab, then the Customize button in the Times section. Edit the Medium time format so that it is consistent with the Short format.

    On macOS 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard, open System Preferences, then click Language & Text. Click the Formats tab, then the Customize button in the Times section. Edit the Medium time format so that it is consistent with the Short format.

  • Why are some clocks marked with an asterisk (*) in menus?

    If you are showing daylight-saving time transitions in the Clocks palette pop-up menu, in the Dock icon menu, or the menu associated with the World Clock Deluxe icon or clock in the menu bar, clocks that are about to switch to daylight-saving or standard time will be marked with an asterisk (*).

    Marked clocks will switch to daylight-saving or standard time within a week. To view when the transition will exactly occur, use the DST Transitions submenu.

  • How can I show GMT or UTC?

    Choose View > Clocks, click the Add (+) button at the bottom of the list, and choose New Clock.

    To display time zones in the list, move the mouse pointer over the column headers, so that the word City highlights and a small white pop-up arrow appears. Click City in the column header and choose Time Zone from the pop-up menu.

    Select Greenwich Mean Time or Coordinated Universal Time in the list, specify a format, and click OK.

  • I can’t display time zones while defining a new clock. What I am doing wrong?

    To display time zones and world times (GMT, UTC) in the list, move the mouse pointer over the column headers, so that the word City highlights and a small white pop-up arrow appears. Click City in the column header and choose Time Zone from the pop-up menu.

  • I can’t display time zones in the Time Converter. What I am doing wrong?

    To display time zones and world times (GMT, UTC) in the list, move the mouse pointer over the column headers, so that the word City highlights and a small white pop-up arrow appears. Click City in the column header and choose Time Zone from the pop-up menu.

  • Can I remove the comma between city, time zone or alternate text and time in clocks?

    You can remove the comma using the Terminal application, which is located in the Utilities folder in your Applications folder.

    Quit World Clock Deluxe if it is running. Then open Terminal, type (or copy and paste) this command, and press Return:

    defaults write com.mabasoft.WorldClockDeluxe4 ClockSeparator -string " "

    You can also replace the comma with any other custom separator string. If you want to switch back to the default clock separator, simply type the command:

    defaults delete com.mabasoft.WorldClockDeluxe4 ClockSeparator

    and press Return.

  • I would like to add a new city. Where can I find its weather station indicator, latitude, longitude, UTC offset, time zone abbreviation, and daylight-saving time information?

    You can look up weather station indicators, geographical coordinates, offsets from UTC, time zone abbreviations, and daylight-saving time information by choosing Help > Look Up Weather Station Indicator, Help > Look Up Latitude & Longitude, and Help > Look Up UTC Offset & DST.

    To find (and quickly set) daylight-saving time information while you are defining a new city, you can also click the DST Rules button in the bottom-left corner of the dialog and display the DST Rules panel.
