World Clock Deluxe Icon

Customize the World Clock Deluxe menu in the menu bar

World Clock Deluxe lets you customize the menu associated with the icon or clock in the menu bar. You can add your local date and time to the menu, decide which clocks should be displayed, and show daylight-saving time transitions.

To customize the World Clock Deluxe menu in the menu bar:

  1. Choose World Clock Deluxe > Preferences, and then click Menus.

  2. Choose "Menu bar" from the Menu pop-up menu.

  3. To show your local date and time in the menu, select the "Show weekday", "Show date", and "Show time" checkboxes.

    • To specify the format of your local weekday, choose Short or Full from the "Show weekday" pop-up menu.

    • To specify the format of your local date, choose Short, Medium, or Long from the "Show date" pop-up menu.

    • To display your local time with seconds, select the "Display seconds" checkbox.

    • To show your offset from UTC, select the "Display UTC offset" checkbox.

  4. By default, World Clock Deluxe lists all your clocks in the menu.

    • To show only the clocks that are visible in the menu bar, choose "Menu bar clocks" from the "Show clocks" pop-up menu.

    • To show only the clocks that aren't visible in the menu bar, choose "Other clocks" from the "Show clocks" pop-up menu.

    • If you do not want to show clocks, deselect the "Show clocks" checkbox.

  5. If you would like to know when your clocks will switch to daylight-saving or standard time, select the "Show DST transitions" checkbox. The menu will list when (and in how many days) each city will switch to daylight-saving or standard time and mark the clocks that are about to change with an asterisk (*). You can choose the format of transition dates (short, medium, long, or full) from the "Use date format" pop-up menu.

If you want to quickly apply the same settings to the Clocks palette pop-up menu and the World Clock Deluxe menu in the Dock, click the "Apply to All Menus" button.
