    Hello I am new to this forum, I need help editing the LiveClock.plist file to move the hands down so it will fit my larger LiveClock.png file. Please help

    a picture of the clock I am using



    Never Mind I figured it out, just adjusted a bunch of numbers till I got it. The only thing now I need help with is when the hands reach the bottom of the clock it seems that the very tip of which ever hand is close to the number 5 disappears in behind the numbers starting at the number 5 through to the number 7 then appears at full length at the number 8. It's weird can somebody help me out with this

    Here is the link to the Clock:MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    You will have to make the hands longer and move all of them to the center, but still can't figure out why the get cut off at the bottom only

    You will need a tool called "plist editor for windows" if you have windows there is a mac version as well. It is free to download, then you open up a liveclock.plist file (I recommend the default LiveClock.plist) and edit some numbers in there that adjust the hight width and left to right of the hands and center shapes that the hands are located on, I just kept changing them respringing my ipod till I got it to lign up all the hands and shapes near the center. Hope this helps you

    Sorry I took a while to give you the file, here is the link to the Dark version of LiveClock(it is the default clock that comes with liveclock, sorry don't have a modified version of the one I sent you earlier). just add those codes from my previous reply and it should work: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
