  3. [feature request] Show clocks in the game analysis view

This

is miserable. Why not use the same clocks like these

in the analysis board, as well as the game window? Also it would be nice if the clock actually ticked down when played back using the "realtime" button.

Sometimes, this tiny tacked on clock is not even there. For example

There is no clock. I don't understand why sometimes the clocks are visible, sometimes they aren't.

It reminds me of

You cannot unsee it.

Thoughts?

It's fine the way it is, imo. Clocks are not that important when analyzing, compared to playing. Clocks ticking down when "realtime" is on is an interesting idea, but most likely not needed. Clocks aren't there for games played before the feature was implemented:
