Q1. How is Fixed pitch mode?

Using propotional fonts simply to show the time of clocks, each digit position of horizontal direction moves by 1 minute. Typical case is when the time changes 11:11 to 11:12. Some persons, includes masa44, feel it's not elegant very much. Fixed pitch mode avoids the move to draw each character one by one.

Q2. Which language is supported?

Controller app supports English only, however, in the Clock widget, any language characters can be shown. Set "Custom date set"

Q3. My device language is set to Japanese,
but the clock widget doesn't show in Japanese.

The language in SignalClock's clock widget does NOT depend on language setting of Android at all. It's the feature of SignalClock, not a bug. Text specified in Clock design window and Custom date set window will show without translation. For example, following is one of typical design for Japanese. The design always shows Japanese even if your language setting of Android is other than Japanese such as English, German, or other one.

Q4. 宣伝画像にある漢数字の時計はどのように設定すればよいのか?

時刻部分は数字固定で変更不可ですが、午前午後、日付、曜日には、 漢字や英語以外の言語の文字を設定できます。午前午後については、直接、各Clock design画面に設定してください。日付、曜日については「Custom date set」に設定し、各時報の設定画面の「Month type」「Day type」「DoW type」に「Custom #1 」または「Custom #2 」を選択します。なお、「年」に漢数字を使いたい場合は、「year」ではなく「FreeText」に設定し、年明けに手動で切り替えてください。

Q8. 漢字の表示が中華フォントっぽくなってしまう

その現象はお使いのAndroidデバイスの言語が日本語以外に設定され、かつ、Clock widget画面で日本語非対応のフォントが指定されている場合に発生します。(可能であれば)単純にAndroidデバイスの言語を日本語に設定することで問題は解消します。
Androidデバイスの言語設定を日本語以外のまま、中華フォントっぽい表示を避けるには、お好みの日本語対応フォントを外部フォント登録して、日本語が使われている「日付」などに指定してください。作成者の好みですが、Rounded Mgen+(フリーフォント) をお勧めします。
