Q&A: Your questions answered
After you dealt with my calendar query in issue 72 (page 85), I bought the One Calendar app. It’s a big improvement, but although I can colour-code events on screen, only one colour appears when printing. I also get a sync error message at the top of the screen — I thought I’d paid for the full version.
Nick Odantzis replies: We’d purchased One Calendar before recommending it, so knew this wasn’t normal behaviour. We tracked down the sync error problem to the fact that Tony had been attempting to save events to a read-only calendar, typically one shared by another user — One Calendar isn’t smart enough to recognise readonly calendars and prevent you from saving changes to them. The solution is to contact the calendar’s owner and ask for full access, or log on to your calendar account online to see if there’s a setting you can change. Failing that, recreate the event in a calendar that isn’t read-only — select the event and click Copy to quickly do this, then delete the original event.
As for the print error, we were unable to replicate this on our PC — basically, One Calendar colours events according to the calendar they’re assigned to (change these colours via ‘Settings > Options > Colors’). Tony subsequently reported that the print function worked correctly when he set the app up on his laptop, suggesting it might be related to a printer driver issue on his main PC.
Events are printed in colour according to their calendar.
