Hi,
I have two issues that I need help with. I have my primary taskbar set to auto-hide and have replaced it with the DF taskbar. The first issue with the clock customised is that although the code is set to MMM for the month to show just the first three letters, it is showing all of the month. And the second issue is the padding on the left hand side of the clock is very wide, is there a way to reduce it?Enclosed are images showing the issues.
Thanks for any help and if it helps, I havnt used DF for a while but dont ever remember these issues, I am running the latest Dev channel build of Win 11.

Hi Alan,

I was able to reproduce that date issue, it seems to be related to the French language, so I've added it to our list to look into.

The gap is likely because you have the width for the clock manually set. If you decrease it from 300 to 250 or 200, does it remove that gap?

Reducing the value does reduce the gap albeit a small amount but cuts off the date on the right hand side.

If you hover your mouse over your clock, is it right aligned rather then centered?

It dosnt move in any direction.
In the settings for the taskbar clock it dosnt move for any of the settings other than left justify which obviously moves it over to the left hand side of the taskbar.

If you hover your mouse over the clock, it will highlight the work area for the clock. We are aware of a bug that makes the clock right aligned in it's work space, rather then center. I've attached an example of my clock below, it might be the same issue here, and where that gap is coming from

Maybe if we could set our own padding for left and right?

As a work-around what I did was keep the width at 200 but changed the font size and time to 14 and just the time. Then with the help of a third party app - cvalled DS Clock I placed it over the DF clock and changed the background and clock colour to what I wanted.
Not the best solution but it is a work-around without the huge gap on the left.

I'd like to add my vote for fixing or allowing customization of the clock text alignment within its box and/or allowing custom padding to be added to the clock. With the 'Show Desktop' button disable, currently the clock is at the very end of the task bar which doesn't look great.
