Global keyboard shortcut to create a new Event

Postby daniel347x » Sat Feb 18, 2012 12:47 pm

Hello -

It would be very useful if it were possible to create a new event by hitting a user-definable global keyboard shortcut. (In other words, you could be working with some other application activated, with VueMinder not showing, but then be able to hit a keyboard shortcut and have a "New Event" window pop to the forefront.)

(This is one of a short list of suggestions for features that I have come to depend on in Calendarscope, which I am no longer using in favor of VueMinder, but which VueMinder seems to be lacking.)

Thanks,
Dan.

Hi Dan, thanks for the suggestion. I think this is a good idea and will let you know when this feature is available.

In the meantime, you can create a new event without VueMinder showing by right-clicking the VueMinder icon in the task tray and selecting the "New -> Event" command from the popup menu.

Hi,

It's been seven months since this was answered, is this option already available? I haven't been able to do so. It would be extremely helpful.

I've been looking for some kind of shortcut within the application's folder because that way it's very easy to create a hotkey, but it seems there's not such thing. Also, I've been researching the Internet in order to find some windows protocol, like "mailto:", that would trigger the creation of new events. Also unsuccessful.

I really hope there's something we can do about this. Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you very much, this is a brilliant application.

Hi Will, welcome to the forums. I still have this on my list of planned improvements. I've been very busy adding other improvements and haven't had a chance to work on this one yet. I'll try to get it into the next version and will post a reply when it's ready.

Hi,

No worries, I understand time is short and there are more important things to do.

Thanks for your reply and for your work at Vueminder Calendar. Best of its kind.

Ciao!

I'm sorry this is completely off-topic. Whenever I double click on windows task bar, in order to show the application, it appears not maximized. That annoys me a bit, cause if I want to see it properly I have to maximize it myself every single time. Is there a way I can tell Vueminder Calendar to do so every time I open it?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi puchua, I believe this was fixed for version 10.0. A beta is available if you'd like to try it:

Please let me know if the beta doesn't fix it.

It would be very useful if it were possible to create a new event by hitting a user-definable global keyboard shortcut.

This capability has been completed for the next version (10.0). The global hotkey can be defined using the "Hotkeys" command on the Options menu. A number of other useful hotkey shortcuts have also been added. If you'd like an early look, a beta is available and can be downloaded here:
