Mouse lock>Active: Toggles the mouse locked state of the active timer preventing changes to the active timer being made with the mouse. Disabled if full locking has been applied.

Refresh: When long times are set the display only refreshes once every 5 seconds although as the next timer approaches 'now' the refresh rate increases. Clicking 'Refresh' updates the display immediately. This can also be done by pressing the space, return or Esc on the keyboard; clicking over the ruler or clock picture in the top left corner.
Reset origin: Shifts 'now' to the left hand side of the window.
Run again: Resets times by adding (now - original time origin) to each timer and setting Time origin to 'now'.
Start|Stop: Starts the timer process if it isn't already running (pressing the space bar does the same thing). Only available when Auto start is unchecked. Stops the timer process if it is running.
