many thanks indeed for the development of this great skin!!!

Is there a way to modify/customize the wording of the days.

Ex: (in italian) Sab => Sabato | Dom => Domenica

I see that there might be sufficient space and it would perhaps be nice to see the entire word.

Also, would it be possible to decide the font side of the City? I see it a bit small and perhaps it would be nice to see it just a bit bigger.

Many thanks

Follow the steps

For the date:

Go to Documents \ RainmeterSkins \ MINIWeatherPRO \ Resources and open the file.

Go to the == Days == section and change to [MeasureDay2Short] and [MeasureDay3Short]:

Format=%a with Format=%A

Then save and refresh the skin.

For the location font:

Right click on the skin and choose Edit skin.

Go to the == Meters == section and change the FontSize value to [MeterLocation]

(default is 8)

Then save and refresh the skin.

Excellent. many thanks.

Another question, if possible. I noticed that in the upper left corner of the main window there is the current time. Two issues:

  1. it does not update itself constantly. Therefore I have 07:52 CEST and on the PC I have 08:03. This is not so useful and nice to see. Is there a way to just hid this?

  2. how to enlarge the font of the time?

xxenium's avatar

It is not the current time, it is the time of the last update (the data is updated every 10 minutes).

To enlarge the font, right-click on the skin and choose Edit skin.

Go to the == Meters == section( at the end )and change the FontSize value to [MeterUpdate] (default is 8)

Then save and refresh the skin.

It's not a bug.

This is how works.

At some point in the afternoon high temperature ("Today" temperature) is no longer displayed. It is the "Tonight" time when only low temperature is displayed. Then at some point in the morning the "Today" temperature is displayed again.

I have one more request.

How to change the display of pressure unit from hPa to mmHg and wind speed from km / h to m / s?



xxenium's avatar

Follow the steps:

1.Go to Documents \ Rainmeter \ Skins \ MINIWeatherPro \ Resources and open the file 2.In the == Current Weather == section, add after [MeasurePressure]:



Formula=(MeasurePressure * 0.75006)

and after [MeasureWindSpeed]:



Formula=(MeasureWindSpeed * 0.277778)

3. Right click on the skin and choose Edit skin.

4. In the == Meters == section go to [MeterIcon] and at ToolTipText= replace:

[MeasureWindSpeed] [Measure#SpeedUnit#] with [MeasureWindSpeedm/s: 1] m/s

[MeasurePressure] [Measure #PressureUnit#] with [MeasurePressuremmHg: 1] mmHg

5.Save, refresh skin

I really appreciate everything you’ve done.

Thanks for explaining this to me.
