I love your addon. I use it every day!
Did you notice that TB will need a (partial) compatibility with webextension soon? (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/Add-ons_Guide_57). Will your addon be compatible? Thanks!
I applied color options as below.
Header box is gray and
Today box is red and
Selected day box is blue.
So, the feeling is good!
Das Add-on macht genau das, wonach ich gesucht habe: Die Termine werden mit den Farben der Kategorien angezeigt.
I installed the 'Calendar Tweaks' for folder event colors and it shows in the menu, but that's it. There is not way to access colors for the events.
This would be a nice to have feature to differentiate event/meeting types.
Calendar Tweaks 6.3 works fine with Thunderbird 52 and Lightning 5.4.
Every event in Lightning can be colored by the event category color and by the owning calendar color.
The owning calendar color can be changed by right-clicking on the calendar in the left sidebar and selecting Properties from the context menu.
The event category colors can be changed by selecting Tools > Options > Calendar tab > Categories tab.
Normally, the owning calendar color is applied to most of the event background, with the event category color applied to a narrow vertical bar on the right side of the event.
With Calendar Tweaks installed, the colors can be interchanged, so that the event category color is applied to most of the event background, with the owning calendar color applied to a narrow vertical bar on the right side of the event.
Selecting Tools > Calendar Tweaks Options... provides numerous options for changing the display of the calendars and events.
After applying the Thunderbird 55.0b2 update the Calendar in Montly and Multiweek view are no longer working. Disabling the Calendar Tweaks plugin all works again.
This problem is caused by updates to the calendar bindings in Thunderbird 55.0b2.
This means that modifications will have to be made to the corresponding bindings in Calendar Tweaks.
This is quite a lot of work and so won't be done until a final (stable) beta version is available.
Thank you for making this excellent extension!
I have a suggestion to make it even better.
For remote calendars Lightning offers few options for calendar refreshing frequency (sync); it includes "every 30 minutes, 60 minutes or manual". Thunderbird freeze every time a calendar is syncing e such every 60 minutes frequency is totally unsuitable for most calendars, like holiday calendars, that hardly change.
Can you tweak to include additional refreshing options, like:
every 3 hours
every 6 hours
every 12 hours
once a day
every 2 days
once a week
every 2 weeks
once a months
The way to do it is shown here:
Macht was es soll: Zeit Termine mit Kategoriemarkierung farbig an.
First of all great addon. Add lots of functionality which is awesome. But I really need this one here: superuser.com/questions/21088/mozilla-sunbird-multi-day-event-looks-weird-in-calendar If this would be possible to add, I will give the full 5 stars. That would be amazing :)
Unfortunately, this feature is beyond the scope of the Calendar Tweaks add-on. This feature really needs to be added into the Lightning calendar add-on. The original feature request that you refer to was made in 2003, so the change is probably not easy to make.
I moved to Thunderbird from MS Outlook and missed being able to colour event backgrounds by category rather than by which calendar they are in. Calendar colours looked rather flat by comparison and lacked reconfigurability.This add on addressed these items perfectly. Nice that you can still tell which calendar an event is in by the flash of colour at the right hand side. The repeat event icon is a good addition and very clear. An excellent add-on, thanks!
Very helpful. Thanks!
Would be possible to add week numbers for Month and Multiweek calendar views ? There is a request for it https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357012 but it probably won't happen soon since it is requested for 9 years :-) Thanks.
Excellent add-on. I've been using it almost since it first came out. Makes my calendar much easier to read. Since you can now specify the colour of 'Today' and of the 'selected day', I was wondering if there was any way it could be extended to select the background colour of all days in the current month and those days shown for beginning & end of other months. Just an idea..
This is a good idea and will be considered for the next release of Calendar Tweaks.
For completeness, the backgrounds for all types of days would be made configurable:
- weekday this month background
- weekend this month background
- weekday other months background
- weekend other months background
When using Calendar Tweaks in conjunction with complete theme 'Australis Redesign TB 31.7.5' the calendar tweaks colours for events are overided universally by the green colour applied by the theme, all events staying green. Is there a way around this problem?
To resolve the conflicts between the Australis ReDesign theme and Calendar Tweaks would require too much effort to make it worthwhile.
"Would you only want the Today colors to take priority in the Day View, not in the Week/Month/Multi-Week Views ?"
May be Today only? Because user`s mistake with "Today-DayView mix" in Week/Month/Multi-Week Views is unlikely, as I think...
A big thank you to the developer, v6.0 is now working great in TB 31 and Lightning 3.3.
A few useful extras have been added, as well.
Wish to give THANKS to the author, as now with v6 this addon works like a champ once again. Fast service and great support.
I have been using CT for a long time with satisfaction and I'm also its Italian translator.
Like the previous reviewer I also noticed that this addon was broken by TB 31.0 In particular I have 6 calendars (all of them being on Google) and I saw some events were skipped in the Today Panel. At the moment I noticed this on a calendar made only of annual recurring events (birthdays), Some of them were reported, others not.
By deactivatng Calendar Tweaks everything went back ok. I suppose the oroblem could be due to a different manageing of colors which caauses something to disappear, The same happened with the addons ContactTabs which was immediately updated by its author,
Calendar Tweaks 6.0 has been released and fixes these problems.
Calendar Tweaks 6.0 is fully compatible with Thunderbird 31.0 and some minor compatibility issues with Thunderbird 24.0.* have been fixed.
Calendar Tweaks 6.0 has two new tweaks (options), both aimed at saving space in the Month/Multiweek Views and the Today Pane:
- Show time and event on single line if no date (Today Pane)
- Reduce height of events (Month/Multiweek Views) (Today Pane)
Excellent pour la personnalisation des couleurs des cases "Aujourd'hui" et sélectionnée. Pas besoin d'éditer de feuille de style, il suffit de cliquer sur Options > Calendar Tweaks Options. En effet, par défaut dans Lightning, je trouve que les couleurs de ces cases sont trop pales et donc trop peu visibles.
Merci ! Thank you !
Now you can tweak the colors to your hearts' desire and see the outcome in the open calendar without leaving the prefs window -- just click 'Apply'.
Good add-on, but I echo some other people in saying it would be great to be able to customise colours - in particular, the colour of "today" in month or multi-week views. The pink that this addon changes it to is slightly better than Lightning's default yellow, but it's still hard to see unless you search...
Calendar Tweaks 5.0 allows user customization of 'Today' and 'Selected Day' colors (header background color, day box background color, and border color).
Love Lightning but this makes it much more usable
**** Great program nicely done, will def keep it
When displaying an event that lasts for multiple days, I would like to see it running accross the days rather than repeating it for each day! Please add this!
The different colors filling the complete event rather than just a small part of it make the calandar so much more readable. Thank you very much for writing this add-on.
As I have already said in my previous reviews, I love this addon as it provides a visual upgrade to Lightning in Thunderbird which is not only aesthetically pleasing but it actually enhances the usability of the calendar function, particularly if you are using TB on an Exchange server. With this addon and the Exchange provider, Lightning becomes better calendar client for the Exchange server than Outlook, while keeping all the benefits of TB over Outlook. There is, however, one issue that I would like to see fixed - I expected this to be done in Lightning, but my second-best guess would be this addon. When displaying an event that lasts for multiple days, I would like to see it running accross the days rather than repeating it for each day. Not sure if that can be done outside Lightning, but I would really hope so. Thanks!
