Show time in more parts

Hi

Is it possible in Creator to easily put time like H/H/M/M instead of HH/MM?
Example: 10h38m → I wanne place the first digit of hour ‘1’ in one place, place ‘0’ in another spot, same for '3’and ‘8’.

It’s possible with covering layers, but maybe there’s a faster way?

Bye

Yes. All these things are possible. I will post you something when I get on my Laptop. In the mean time look for Inspectable Faces. All mine Are but I have not done that yet.

To make it a bit easier check the documents there are some tags that separate the digits . I assume there are some for minutes . I will look .

Here is a quick test for you before we go to the shops . I could not find split minutes . There are about 60 ways of doing these things . See if this is any use to you otherwise get back .

Minute splitting indeed misses.

for sure. Thanks oracle man :innocent:

quick other question:

I wanna make an own font. I did a quick search on the internet but don’t find quick way to go from self-drawn characters (ex pgn) to a font-file which can be imported.
I suppose there is an app need?
And whiches formats are ok for creator?

No Idea how you managed to take a screenshot with two Tags Highlighted . But I see you are asking about The Magic of Modulus . So basically it divides by the number but only gives you the remainder . So you can do a Modulus on a silly big number like #DNOW# to make something really useful . Give it a GO .

I was wondering that too, but I got it: select one (orange) and hover over the other (white)!

Just be ignorant and do it without purpose. That worked for me.

I thought i (more or less) understood modulo in this situation, where I used it for cycling.

but I don’t understand how ((#Dm#)%10) of ex. 58 (minutes) gives 8?

I did try to explain Modulus above . You will see I have added a long hand piece of maths to do the same job . Sometimes it is a good Idea to Play with Tags to see what happens .

Sorry but I can not Help you with Pro stuff . I struggle to achieve an understanding of what I can do On Facer Basic .

I have had a look at cycle . In that case It is use to confine the number generated by Toggling the Variable to 5 . The watch has no way of resetting the Variable when you get to 5 so it is letting you use the reminder when you have 24 taps counted . Of course in that situation Modulus will give you 4 .

BTW
This code you have in you opacity Tag for the alternate faces is a little wrong .

It was written for a Positional move .

$(#VAR_1#%5)==4?160:-200$

Could be .

$(#VAR_1#%5)==4?100:0$

Of course it would have worked but leaves you with little understanding of Why .
Opacity is 0-100 percent screen size is 0-320 px .

Like I mentioned in another post, I don’t like pasting something without understanding
what’s happening… (advantage and disadvantage at the same time)

For the second option, I just have enough braincells to follow, so thanks.
(for me it helps to see an example)

You obviously understand Maths so you have half a chance . I am not good at the Long hand because I am not a mathematician . I usually et where I want to Creatively .

Hi

I understand that here were start from a handwriting on paper, scan it, etc.
My intention is to work digitally = draw characters in drawing app (Sketchbook I use)

I don’t think it can be done with Calligraph?

Can you not import .png into that Calligraph App ?

it’s a bit cumbersome.
One has to work with a template of them, a template with markers to draw in; make a picture/ scan later to upload.
I’ll give it a shot by using it as a layer in my drawing app, then merge it on their template and then print it as a pdf. And upload that… :yawning_face:

Oh dear . I am sure someone will turn up soon with a Better Idea . All the Americans are asleep at the moment .

oh, not aware, here (Europe/ Belgium), 10:56 am :innocent:

ps: but I must change the white into a colour or Calligraph won’t find a character on the white template :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
