Open up Sign Creator 

In Sign Creator first thing we need to do is determine what size our sign file will be.

Generally a pre-allocated size in the either Scheduler or DCMedia Cloud. 

To do this we need to double click on the white space in the middle of Sign Creator and change the size to match our needs.

Once that is sorted we can go ahead and start making our date and time sign.

We start that:

Step 1.

Step 2.

Step 3. Double Click on the newly created text box to get into the properties panel.

Can also be done by right clicking the text box and selecting Properties.

 Select the TEXT tab

Step 4: Select the macros we need.

**Note Headings such as  "Date" and "Time" as well as formatting "-" and ":" need to be put in manually to achieve the following result.
