Customizing Themes

Themes can be created and customized by clicking the Customize button. The currently selected theme will be used as a starting point in the Appearance Theme Editor.

Date Appearance

You can select a date color for weekends, and control whether days in the Navigation Pane are colored based on the events they contain.

Use Event Colors For Navigation Pane Dates

The "Use event colors for Navigation Pane dates" checkbox enables control over whether the Navigation Pane colors dates based on the appearance of the events they contain. When checked, the Navigation Pane will appear as shown below, where some date colors override the day-of-week color setting. For dates that contain multiple events, the date color will be based on the earliest event. In the case where there's a tie, such as dates that contain multiple all-day events, the order of calendars in the Calendar List will be used to break ties. Calendars that are higher in the list will take priority when coloring dates.

When the option to use event colors in the Navigation Pane is enabled, any days that contain events will be colored based on the first event in the day.

When unchecked, the Navigation Pane will appear as shown below, where date colors always use the appearance option and dates containing events are bold.

When the option to use event colors in the Navigation Pane is enabled, any days that contain events will be colored based on the first event in the day.

Use Event Colors For Date Headers

The "Use event colors for Date Colors in the Day, Week, and Month Views" checkbox enables control over how date headers are colored. When this option is checked, date headers will use the appearance of the first event occurring on the date, as shown in the example below.

Date headers can optionally be colored based on the color of the first event occurring on the date.

Use Date Selection Highlight Color

If you don't like the default highlight color used for the selected date, you can select a different color after checking the "Use date selection highlight color" box. In the example below, the selected date is colored orange instead of the default light-blue.

Any color can be specified to show the date selection. In this example, orange was selected.

Use Current Date Color

As with the selected date color, you can optionally choose a color for the current date. This option can be used to help the current state be more apparent when looking at the calendar. To select a color, first check the "Use current date color" box.
