    Ok this probably sounds really strange, but i'm trying to change the time format to 12 hour (not very good with 24) , and for some reason I can't get it to do it. I've tried going into International - Formats - Customize, and although i've changed it and it looks like it's showing 12 hour in the preview, it isn't actually on the toolbar :confused: Any help would be much appreciated.

    Launch System Preferences.
    Click the Date & Time preferences pane.
    Click the Clock tab.
    Uncheck Use a 24-hour clock.

    Go to 'Date & Time' in System Prefs and click on the clock tab. Deslect the 'Use a 24 hour clock' button, and Robert's your father's brother!
    Done.

    Cheers

    :D Cheers. Still getting used to my first mac, quite a learning curve, keep thinking stuff should be much more complicated than it actually is, that's what 15 years of windows will do to you I guess :rolleyes:
