Please Help! Beginner's Question!

Hello everyone,

I’m extremely new to the facer community, and I’d like to create my own watch face. Looking over the FAQs and Help Center showed me several features that I knew would be to my advantage when creating. However, I have no idea how to get to them. To make my question a bit more specific, how do I access the expressions? How do I use them?

Reposting under support to increase my chances of being seen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


It seems that you have many questions. Come to the Facer chat

Hello LVII,
Have you checked these resources?

Hi Linlay,

I have checked those resources out, yet neither of them really explain how to use the assets I want (i.e. tags/expressions). If you know of a better explanation for this then that would be exactly what I’m looking for.

The easiest way to learn is to look inside faces that have been made by other people. You can do this by clicking on the rocket ship icon to the left of any watch face that has it. Here is a link to one that I have made that has a lot of tags and complications in it. Just click “MAG 1092” at the bottom and it will open into a full web page and you will see the rocket ship icon to the left of the watch.

Once you are looking at the Facer inspect page for this watch just click any of the lock icons on the layers to unlock it to be able to see how it is done.

I hope this helps!

I’m not sure what you mean by “a better explanation”. I started by using the tutorials. There are a lot of tips in the community discussions as well. Check out the designs of others if they are open for inspection. Many of the regulars here who have math, engineering, or art backgrounds are always willing to help.
