    So I'm creating an info.plist (actually editing a different one) and I have run into a problem. I'm trying to move my status clock to the left, so I'll have more room for my status notifier icon, and it works to more it to the write, with the "padding-left" command, but when i change it to "padding-right" and enter a number of pixels, it always just stays in the center. If anyone knows about plist editing could they please help me please? Here's the info.plist file I'm using: (I want it to go 70 pixels to the left, not the right, as shown)

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>

    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>font-family: Trebuchet MS; padding-left: 70px;</string>

    </dict></plist>

    PS. I'm not sure if this is in the right section, I've never started a thread on these forums before.

    PPS. this is being implemented via winterboard if that helps.

    Well if you move it left than you won't have a Time. If you want to try to move it left put a negative in front of your number. Thing is when you move it LEFT, it will disappear. Trust me I tried to do the same.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>
    
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>margin-left: 99px; color: black</string>
    
    </dict>
    </plist>
    Try that. If it moves than put a negative.

    nope none of those worked... just stayed in the center both times.
    i guess what I'm really wondering is why this doesn't work:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>

    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>font-family: Trebuchet MS; padding-right: 70px;</string>

    </dict></plist>

    as apposed to the other one, which does work
