New Time and Date very limited

The new Time and Date Widget is so incredibly limited.

I want the time to be above the date and the date to be smaller, there seems to be no way to edit this, or the padding/margin between the Time and Date.

I don't want the date and time beside each other in one long line as that's not how our display was designed, and in order to fit it in the placeholder space that's there the text has to be so small that you can't read either at a distance.

Just because date and time is a simple thing doesn't mean this widget should be so limited on how and what it can display. I also don't want the year displayed, there is just no need for it and also no way to remove that.

Thanks for the input, Glen. I've noted this as an Idea and have assigned the proper team.

Glen,

Actually, there is a very simple way to accomplish what you're wanting. Just create two placeholders, and add the Time and Date Widget to both. In one, select only time, and the other, select only date. You can then format the text individually, and place them exactly how you want them to be placed.
