custom menu bar time/date

by Rob Friesel

A handy little tip over at CreativeBits re: customizing the time/date stamp format in your OS X menu bar. It takes a little playing around to really make it work right. The “catch” (at least as I observed it) was that you need to:

  1. Copy what you want from Date
  2. Paste it into the “Medium” length time
  3. …and then go back to System Preferences > Date & Time > Clock to turn off (for example) the AM/PM indicators or switch to 24-hour time or turn off the day of the week.

But a good tip nonetheless!
