The first one is static and the other two depend on what you are trying to do. You need to determine the size of your circle in degrees (360 for full, 180 for half etc.) and then determine in how many steps you need to cut that size. For something that moves with the minutes of the hour it would be 60 for instance. Then your amount of degrees per minute is 360/60 and if you multiply that with the numbers of minutes #Dm#, you get your current position and rotation. So for something to move around a circle based on the minutes of the hour you would need these advanced parameters:
To apply this to your idea, you need to figure out in how many steps you want your circle to be broken down to (I would guess 12) and then what's your variable you want to multiply with (#ARK# maybe). With these values it should position the symbol on the hour of the sunrise.
I hope this helps you out and if not, don't hesitate to ask
#2: I think so but you probably would have to work with some advanced parameter conditionals to check whether it's currently am or pm. This depends on what exactly you are trying to do. If you can give me more details I can try to think something up.
Thanks for the response. That's actually the first parameter that I found and tried to work with, and, like then, I still can't get it to work. My "hour clock" numbers are:
Using #Dh#, min 0, max 12
Putting numbers into the codes you gave...
...(or even #ARK#) still sends the icon low and to the left, as you can see in the second screen shot (I've enlarged it to show it's position better). I'm living up to my namesake with this, I know, but my guess is I'm missing one small bit that's throwing me off. Apologies, of course.
