Using this dialog you can bring the displayed time to a form
most appropriate to your use of XNote Stopwatch.
For example if you timing a soccer match you would like to
eliminate hours and decimals by unchecking
corresponding marks. Since hours are out of deal
minutes will be counted up over 59. For more attractive view
you may assing two or three leading zeroes by clicking the
spin or editing the field at the left of dialog.
As opposite if you are an animator you are most likely interested
in seconds and decimals only. Moreover due to your
professional specific decimals should represent
frames instead of traditional 0.1, 0.01 or 0.001 of second. This
can be down editing the field or selecting predefined values from
drop-down list at the right of dialog.
Since these changes extend or shorten the time string the window
will be stretched or narrowed (the left edge) accordingly to
accomodate new time string and retain current dimension of digits.
The window width will be changed even while the time running and
overflows unless you assign enough leading zeroes; reseting
the time or rolling back with Set
custom time returns the window width, of course.
Rounding helps you handle remainders. Most likely
you want to truncate eliminated rightmost values but in some cases
you need to consider, for example, a partial frame as a completed
frame. Appropriate radio buttons gain you total freedom to resolve
Notice: All these changes are
lossless. I.e. if you get rid off decimals but enable them
right away you will see prevouis value. The same applies to
decimals repesentation conversions and rounding
