Another whole approach. I don't know what the overall reason for having the
clock onscreen is, or what platforms the stack(s) need to run on. In my own
case, on a Mac with any system that puts the time in the menubar, I think
I'm just going to leave the menubar and the clock/date visible. I will
delete any other menus, except 'File', which I don't think you can delete,
but maybe you can make it non-functional.

Maybe in Rev, you can delete it, though, since they're just, ultimately,
buttons. Is this true?

Best regards,
