NewDeal Hot Tip 1711PIMs
If you have NewPlanner set for a 10-15 minute warning and you are trying to track a shorter period of time, the alarm may not sound at all if the warning period is longer than the scheduled event.
Use the Snooze feature to have the alarm repeat. It will go off about every 4.5 minutes
To play the timer copy of Solitaire while using the timer, Click the upper right corner button to maximize the application, press the box again to shrink it down to size. Press the Minimize button (left box in the upper right corner) to minimize the timer, but it makes more sense to start another copy of Solitaire so the timer is not interrupted if something serious is being tracked.
Remember: Re-dealing will stop the clock and reset the timer. So will Selecting Options, Timed Game, without going through Game, Redeal. The options menu can be pinned open and the timer reset in an instant by double-clicking on it.
It is also possible to slide the open timer window to the lower left corner, if you want to see both the NewPlanner clock and the elapsed time in the lower right hand corner. If the NewPlanner clock has already been placed in the lower left corner, select NewPlanner from the Express menu to make it appear in front of the Solitaire application. When other applications are minimized they may obscure the timer or clock unless the numbers are right along the bottom edge of the screen.
Hope you get some use from the "second hand" for your NewPlanner clock.
