PolarClock3 Question

I noticed that in PolarClock3 the halfway point on the hour arc isn't 12 pm, it's 6 pm or 18 hours. Does anyone know why this is?

  • Hello Fred,

    I agree that you would expect the hour arc to span 24 hours, with the halfway point at 12 hours. However, it seems that the arc is always 12 hours, regardless of the "24 Hour" setting in the screensaver's settings panel.

    So then it makes sense that the halfway point is either 6 am (6:00) or 6 pm (18:00), but it's a little strange that the full 24 hours of a day are split this way.

    I'm assuming it was a design decision, perhaps there wasn't enough space to fit the text "1 hour" if the arc were to be cut in 24 slices instead of 12. But I suppose it could also be a bug. I don't have a definite answer, I'm afraid.

    Hope that helps.
