Don't trust the creator preview for width

I have been cycling through all dates before publishing a watch face but if you use fixed width even though it shows correctly and fits fine in Creator the date can show up blank on the actual watch.

I had to quickly fix these two since the date didn’t work:

JS Dark Ocean


JS Atlantic Ocean

Maybe I shouldn’t use fixed width?

It’s the total width of the date element. You always have to allow extra room because WearOS is finicky for some reason. If you look at the width box, you can fix it in one of two ways. Unclick the fixed width checkbox or just set the width to 360 which is off screen on both sides. Either one will work.

It would be too much to ask to set a box and have Facer scale the font to fit inside.

I like things neat and in its place. :slight_smile:
