  1. Hi
    Is it possible to switch off the analogue clock completely and only show the planning window?

    • Sorry for the delay in response.

      Hmmm… Good point. Originally there was and it appears that I have lost it through the evolution of program. (Now that yo mention it, I know the change that altered the behavior.)

      I’ll see about generating an update to add this functionality. It will probably take a couple of weeks for me to get the change out and get it through the approval process.

      • I just submitted an update, v1.3.1, to the Mac App Store that allows the user to set which windows are opened when the application starts. The setting can be found in the “Default Format” preference pane.

        Typically, it takes Apple about a week to approve an app. I will make a post to this web site when it is available.

  2. Hey, this is exactly how I use it as well: I just need the planning window. It is pretty handy, since in there I just enter the time slot I have for conversations and I see right away the time for my colleges around the world. NOW exactly because of this there would be a suggestion I would love seeing implemented: A copy & paste feature. Meaning I enter the time slot I have for an appointment and then I see what the exact date and time for my colleges on the other side of the planet is. BUT I now need to enter this time by hand. This is another source for errors and it simply takes longer than if I could simply copy & paste date and time with a click from the Planning Window into the chat, or the email or our project managment system for my colleges.

    Do you think this would be possible to implement. Either via right mouse click, or for example also with a tiny button “Copy Date & Time”, or anything like this.

    Looking forward to your answer.
