I have installed both "Day of week" and "Day of month". Alas the alignment of those two does not match. Can you please adjust?

Hmm, that is strange. I tested the widgets in little and big panels, and they were aligned correctly.

I've just tested again, and they look fine:

Are you using some special version of the panel? Or perhaps some special config of the panel?

Strange... I use a top panel - maybe that's the problem?

Probably the vertical panel is not the reason. In fact, in the second screenshot I posted in my first response, the big panel is a top panel (and the first screenshot is a bottom panel). So no problem with top panels.

Hmm... Did you update the "Day of month" widget? On Sunday I published a new version (1.1) that uses the same layout as "Day of week". In fact, the first version (1.0) used a different layout, with different alignment. So perhaps you are using "Day of month" 1.0 and "Day of week" 1.1, with different alignment.

Or perhaps you updated "Day of month", but it wasn't really updated. I have noted that sometimes the update process could take the old version from cache. To make a safe update, I recommend to follow these steps:

1. Remove the widget from the panel
2. Uninstall the widget
3. Reboot the computer
4. Install the widget (new version)
5. Add the widget to the panel

Try that, and good luck :-)
