Mini desktop calendar - add button to open full version

Postby Manix » Mon Aug 31, 2015 7:44 pm

For convenience, I keep a shortcut to the full VueMinder on the desktop underneath the mini desktop calendar (which is my preferred regular view). It saves me the minor task of having to switch from the mini desktop desktop calendar to the full desktop calendar, in order to open the full version, or launching it from elsewhere.

My tiny enhancement suggestion would be to add a button to the foot of the mini calendar that would launch the full VueMinder, placed next to the existing button that opens the full desktop version.

Hi Manix, thank you for the feedback. I've added this to my to-do list. In the meantime, you can define a global hotkey for re-opening the main VueMinder window. Hotkeys can be defined via the Options menu.

You can also define a hotkey for showing the desktop calendar, which might help you workaround the problem you reported about the desktop calendar sometimes being minimized when you use the "Show Desktop" button. You could use the hotkey instead.

I could indeed - but I rarely remember them...

Hi Manix, version 2017.02 improves the mini desktop calendar with a button to open the main VueMinder window. The button is located in the bottom-left corner. The appearance of the mini desktop calendar has also been improved.
