The first four Radio buttons at the top let you choose between Analogue with seconds, Analogue without seconds, HH.MM (digital without seconds) or HH.MM.SS (digital with seconds).
There is also an icon where you can enter your own format string for the display. Many people will not want to do this, so it is not described in detail. However there is a list of the formatting parameters at the end of this section for those that wish to experiment.
If you have selected one of the digital display formats, there is the option to select the font in which to display the clock, along with height and aspect. These are limited to sensible values for most fonts.
