Unable to display tasks in Calendar

Post by Ryan » Mon Sep 28, 2020 3:19 pm

I am having a problem displaying tasks in the Calendar.

When there are many tasks, enough to fill the vertical space in the Calendar plus one, the only way I am aware of to view all of them is to either set the option to dynamically adjust the height, or to select a day

and scroll the tasks.

However, even though I have the Calendar set to display only one week, I am not able to make either of these methods work, and cannot see all of the tasks on the list on some days. I am assuming that the dynamic adjustment isn't working because it will only adjust to a certain point and then the font size becomes too small to read. I could not read it if it was any smaller so this method will not be useful in this situation.

But I also cannot use the scrolling method because many times the scroll bar on the selected day does not appear.

I'd like to display multiple weeks in my calendar view, but then these problems seem to get even worse. I'd be okay with only showing one week as long as I can somehow see everything.

I am not sure what to do. Is there a better way to deal with this issue?

I've posted a screenshot of the current week illustrating the problem. One shows the dynamic height adjustment enabled and the other shows it disabled and no scroll bar on the selected day.

What I think I wish I had is a way to scroll the whole Calendar window for that week up and down rather than just the tasks on one day. This is the best solution I can think of, but maybe there is a better idea.

Thanks for any help and again for this outstanding program!

Hi Ryan

I accept that for the number of tasks you have on display the current design is not optimal.

Before I tackle each of the issues you raise however I need you to update your version to 8.0 because I have done a fair amount of work on the Calendar to ensure that the 'current day scrollbar' appears more reliably.
