Using the dial as a timer...

I had my first experience working with the dial feature and found it to be not what I was expecting at all. I get that this is supposed to be for "dialing" things but with a little work it could be used as a timer and how I used it really helped to make the slide more fun with the timer ticking down.

So... I wasn't able to get it to really work. The numbers in the toolbar for the feature made no sense to me. I don't understand why it doesn't start at the 12 o-clock position by default and I don't know how I can effectively create a 30-second or 60-second timer.

Is there anyone who has mastered this and can share their knowledge?
