Conflict between Calendar Tweaks and Australis Redesign TB Theme Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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?

Unfortunately not ...

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...

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,

Fixed in Version 6.0

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 !

Even greater in version 5. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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...

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!

Great Lightning enhancement Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

multiday events Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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!

A GREAT addition to the calendar view!

One question - is it possible to transfer the category colours set on one PC to another?

One wish - It would be great if you could tweak the "today" pane colour - the default is a little too subtle!

I just installed this add-on and it looks like a big improvement. Would be even better if you could choose the colors you want for the «Today date» and the «selected Day». Another improvement would be to write the name of the month in all squares (in month view), not only on the 1st and last day. Thanks for a great add-on.

THANK YOU for this. The standard color highlighting is so lacking.

Three requests / suggestions for your talents:

a. be able to right click on an event and set the category / coloring. It would eliminate so many keystrokes and actions if it could be incorporated into the context menu.

b. be able to mass assign category to multiple entries. Example: I search out "birthday" in the calendar list, returning all the birthdays. It would be great to select all, then click a menu button or right click and assign a single category to all of them!

c. be able to assign categories to meetings in which you are an attendee. At the moment you cannot assign a category to an event that you didn't create, but are only invited to. This seems like a silly limitation, since I want to categorize different events, sometimes by who the organizer is!

Keep up the good work!!!

Exactly what I wanted! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was seriously thinking to implement an add-on to have Lightning use the category color on the whole item... then found this, good job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4). 

I've been looking for that for so long ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have add-on if you use Lightning. Works perfectly and contains all the features missing in lightning.
For example, I've been searching for so long to change the entire background of the events in link with the categories instead of that useless touch of color by default in lightning.
My prefered add on for TB. So usefull.

Thank you so much !

Default color Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on - Thanks!

I very much like the new feature for using
the category as background for the entire
event entry.
One suggestion:

Add another option which would use the
"Calendar" color as the background for
un-categorized events, instead of using
light grey for all calendars.

You are now using the Calendar color in a
little box at the right end of each entry,
but this makes the uncategorized entries
still mostly alike.

In my experience, my main calendar has all
the categories. For other calendars, such
as for holidays or shared appointments,
it is not so convenient to set the category,
so the calendar itself acts as the category.

With this option, those "super-categories"
would look just as distinctive as the assigned
categories.

BTW, it is just fine to indicate the calendar with
its color in a small indicator and I am not
suggesting changing that at all.

How does that sound?

Available in Version 4.3

This feature is available in Calendar Tweaks 4.3. When coloring event backgrounds by category, there is an option to use the calendar color as the event background color, if no category color is defined.

Works Fine for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using a chrome .css file for many months now to get event boxes fully coloured like this add-on does, but each time I had to change/add/edit a category, it meant re-writing the .css file. This add-on now does it all for me. Brilliant !. I know there have been issues with un-categorised events, but as I categorise all my events, it wasn't an issue to me. I know it has a setting to alter shading on other months in month view, but is it possible to alter the background colour of the whole calendar ? I find the white background very harsh. A user-selectable background colour would make the whole calendar much more readable. Excellent add-on.
