Does anyone know of a way to anchor numbers on digital clock? I have used a font offered by Facer, and when I use this font in Digital Clock form the numbers continue to move when they change, i.e. when 30 turns to 31.
I can’t find a solution. Any assistance is appreciated.
You need to use a fixed width font. There are a number of sites to download such fonts.
I quite like this one: digital_7_mono_italic
You can find it here: Search fonts results with keywords: digital 7 - Lastest Fonts
Ha Ha . If you are serious about a Digital display that does not dance you have to split hrs min and seconds up . You need to find a Monospaced Text . The LCD ones are popular for that reason . I am not a Font expert but I hate the dancing Digits .

you can streamline the (0-9) by using for example (#Ds#%10)
I’m going to add that to my notes!
I am using a Monospaced fix width, digital font. The one provided on Facer’s Digital Watch template. Heck, the codes below - I don’t know where to use them. I’m a rookie.
This is the one I’m working on but all the digital ones I’ve made do the same thing.
The issue is Despite being a Monospaced Font the " one " is justified Left . I have used Fonts that don’t do that . The 1 stays on the right .
It is a good exercise to split the Digits up Tens and Units .
You need two layers . One for the tens . 0-5 and one for the units 0-9 . I would Right justify Both . So then Apply the Formulas shown in the text Box . they make the two digit number into single .
Use the MAG formula for the Tens and Peters for the Units .
I feel a bit dim but… I don’t understand the “tens” or “units”
I don’t know if this is related - I have yet to learn how to create empty layers and import PNG’s onto them.
If you look at the number 12 . 1 is the tens number and 2 is the unit number . There many other ways of labeling these numbers.
most of the layers can be used to import a PNG into . However if you use the IMAGE one it will be more obvious in the listing and you can see in the settings on the right there is a preview to remind you what the image is for that layer . Also you can change the pivot point which can be useful.
Have gone through a lot of fonts but still haven’t found one that the numbers don’t jump around with. Frustrating. I had originally hope there was a way to lock the number layer in place.
Best way was using “monospaced” fonts (fixed character width). Shame is, there was bug with Facer faces on wearOS watches eating the left portion of some digits anyway.
