Convert time from different zones

autoConvert Select now converts time zones from a variety of formats. Just select the text containing a time with a different time zone, and it will be automatically converted to your time zone.

autoConvert Select recognises these core time zone versions:

  • The standard version: ‘2 P.M. Europe/London‘,
  • Most abbreviations: ‘14:00 BST‘, and
  • Many city and area names: ‘1400 London time

I will continue adding support for more formats, so please share with me any text you think it isn’t converting properly.

Trigger key for only converting selectively

autoConvert Select now includes an option to only convert text when a trigger key is pressed. This may be set on the options/preferences page.

This option is disabled by default. Trigger keys may be any of: ‘alt‘, ‘shift‘, ‘control‘(not on MacOS), and ‘Command‘ (on MacOS).
