Description: Alwact Clock is an analog desktop clock featuring mp3 alarm, skins, transparency and zoom. It is possible to display the date and make the clock click-through. Using multi-touch touchpad, the mouse wheel or keyboard shortcuts, you can alternate between skins and set the zoom level. You can also make your own skins using any image edition software supporting PNG. 'Always On Top' (dis/en)able : An option has been added to the context menu. If you desire to have the Alwact Clock widget (partially) hidden by other windows, uncheck this option. An icon will be added to the system tray for fast access. On-screen distance measurement : When you want to measure the distance between 2 points on your screen, activate the Alwact Clock by clicking on it, hold the Shift key ('Shift' on most keyboards) and move your mouse between the two positions, a dialog will show when you release the control key, displaying the initial and final position, as well as the distance between them. Enhanced automatic repositioning : When a portion of the clock widget is out of the screen after a zoom or a screen resolution change (full screen video, full screen game), an icon will be added to the system tray. By double-clicking on it, the clock widget will be repositioned to fit into the screen. Skin folder access : Open the skin folder directly from the clock widget contextual menu.
