Appearance by Category

Have a great idea on how VueMinder could be improved? Post it here!

Appearance by Category

It would be useful if the colours set upp under categories could automatically be transferred to the appearance settings for a given event.

So, for example, if I define a category of "Urgent" specifying While text on a Red background and then later create an event and assign it the "Urgent" category, it would be nice to have the appearance settings automatically change to White text on a Red background (or at least have a single tick-box to do this).

Currently, I have to set the appearance manually for each event.

Hi systemcv, welcome to the forums. VueMinder can color-code events based on associated calendar, category, location, or priority. It sounds like you want your events to be color-coded based on category. Click the "View -> Color Events Using -> Category Colors" menu command. Is that what you're looking for?

That would do it :)

I missed that one, probably because I normally use the "Desktop Calendar (Full)" layout to enter everything rather than the actual app.
