How to get here...

  • The Appearance Toolbar defaults to appearing at the top of the Main Window.
  • If you don't see it, click the "Appearance Toolbar" option on the View menu.


The Appearance Toolbar enables the display of calendars, events, notes, categories, priority types, and locations to be customized. The fill color, gradient pattern, and font may be modified to visually distinguish between these elements. The toolbar can also be used to assign background colors or images to dates selected in the Month view.

Day Background

A button is provided on the Appearance Toolbar for setting or clearing day backgrounds in the Month View. Backgrounds can be set to solid colors or images. The images can be selected from the local drive, network, or internet. For more information, see the Day Backgrounds topic. An example Month view, where several images have been set, is shown below.
