Frequently Asked Questions
|Q:||The Clock plugins with macOS Sierra?|
|A:||You have updated to macOS Sierra, and do not see The Clock anymore. This is due to the old special plugin to place The Clock on the right side of the menu bar, which is not compatible with macOS Sierra. You will need to uninstall the plugin.
If you do not have the installer, just download it at: seense.com/the_clock/plugins/ then use the uninstaller.
