The main toolbar.

1. New...

The New button expands into a submenu of commands for creating new items.

The New button provides commands for creating new items.

New Calendar

  • After selecting this command, a new event calendar will be created. The Calendar Properties window will be displayed. The calendar will also be added to the Calendar List.
  • Event calendars are associated with events, meetings, and appointments. You could define multiple event calendars for birthdays, anniversaries, work schedules, medical appointments, scheduling rooms or other resources, etc.
  • The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+C.

New Calendar Group

  • The Calendar List allows calendars to be grouped. This command will create a new calendar group in the Calendar List.
  • Existing calendars can be dragged into the new calendar group, or the group can be right-clicked to add new calendars to it.

New Category

  • This command will create a new category, which can be used in the Category field of the Event Editor.
  • The new category will be displayed in the Category Editor, where the default name and appearance can be modified.

New Event

  • After selecting this command, the Event Editor window will be displayed, where a new event can be defined.
  • The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+N.

New Recurring Event

  • After selecting this command, the Recurrence tab of the Event Editor window will be displayed, where a new recurring event can be defined.
  • This is the same as the "New Event" command, except the new event will default to be recurring.

New All Day Event

  • After selecting this command, the Event Editor window will be displayed, where a new all-day event can be defined.
  • This is the same as the "New Event" command, except the new event will default to being all-day.

New Contact

  • This command will cause the Contact Editor window to be displayed, where a new contact can be defined.
  • The new contact's File As value must be unique, otherwise the changes will overwrite the existing contact having the same File As value.

2. New Event

  • After selecting this command, the Event Editor window will be displayed, where a new event can be defined.
  • The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+N.

3. Delete

  • This command will delete the selected item, which could be a calendar, event, category, priority, location, etc.
  • Before the item is deleted, you will be prompted to confirm the deletion.
  • The keyboard shortcut for deleting an item is the Delete key.
  • When deleting a category, priority, or location, any existing events associated with the deleted item will be updated to remove the association.

4. Undo

This command will undo the most recent operation. The exact operation will be included as part of the Undo command's caption (example: Undo Delete Event). After undoing an operation, the next recent operation will be associated with the Undo command, and the operation that was undone will be assigned to the Redo command. There is no limit to the number of operations that can be added to the undo stack and associated with the Undo command. The only time the undo stack will be cleared is when an operation is performed, such as importing events from an iCalendar file, that is too complex to be undone. The following are examples of operations that can be undone:

  • Creating or deleting an item (calendar, event, contact, category, etc.)
  • Dismissing a reminder
  • Snoozing a reminder
  • Changing an item appearance (calendar, category, etc.)
  • Rescheduling an event
  • Editing an event or contact.
  • Creating a new item (calendar, event, contact, category, etc.)
  • Categorizing or prioritizing an event
  • Marking an event as completed

5. Redo

This command will redo the previous undone operation.

  • If multiple operations were undone, the Redo command will redo each operation in the opposite order it was undone.
  • When a new operation is performed, the Redo command will become disabled until an operation is undone.
  • The list of operations that can be redone is the same as the ones that can be undone, and the Redo command's caption will include the operation description (example: Redo Delete Event).

6. Search

  • This command will cause the Search window to be displayed, where you can search for events containing specified text.
  • The first found event will be selected in the Calendar View
  • The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+F.

7. Print

  • This command will display the Print Settings window, where a print layout, date range, and various options can be specified.
  • A dynamic print preview can also be displayed. It will automatically update as print settings are changed.
  • After you're satisfied with the print settings, you can continue printing from the Print Settings window.
  • The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+P.

8. Transfer Data to VueMinder Portable

  • This command allows the current data to be transferred to the Portable (USB) version of VueMinder Calendar.
  • The Transfer Data to VueMinder Portable window will appear, where the location of the Portable version be specified and the data transferred.
  • The Portable version has a similar command for transferring data back to the Lite version on the local computer, allowing easy data synchronization between the Lite and Portable versions.

9. Save as Web Page (HTML)

  • This command will display the Save As Web Page window, where one or more months can be saved to HTML web pages.
  • Any filters set in the Calendar Items area will be used when generating the web pages. If there are calendars you don't want to include in the HTML output, you can uncheck their names to cause them to be hidden, prior to using the Save As Web Page command.
  • The generated web pages can be uploaded to a website.

10. Help

  • The Help command will display this help documentation.
  • The keyboard shortcut is F1.
