10.4: Easily add the date to the menubar
Authored by: David Grossman on May 18, '05 06:49:24PM

"tandemrepeat" was correct. I changed all the lengths (short, medium, long and full) to the same date string in the Times section of the International control panel. Then when I was done, I clicked on the Input Menu tab and the menu bar updated with the new format. You also have to uncheck the "Show day of the week" in the Date & Time control panel. Otherwise you get 2 "Wed" next to each other.

Not sure what horrible fallout this will have with other apps, but it's pretty sweet right now. :-)

10.4: Easily add the date to the menubar
Authored by: Hart on May 21, '05 01:50:34PM

After trying to show this tip to my wife, I think I worked out a method that works.

1. Command click and drag the menu bar clock off the menu bar.

2. Follow the tip's steps, copying the day and date from the Dates > Customize section.

3. Follow the tip's steps, pasting the day and date into the time work area and then customizing as you like. (I left the seconds field in place, though it doesn't show in the menu bar.)

4. Go to Date & Time and check Show the date and time, uncheck Show the day of the week and uncheck Display the time with seconds.

That worked for each of our Macs.

Indeed your addition to the hint worked. Now I can see what day it is as I have a habit of forgetting what day it is(faulty memory :P ).

Your post should be appended to the hint to prevent any more "It's not working!" posts.
