I have converted from Calendar Creater V2 to V12 and am wondering how to do a global change to the font selected for the new version. The default font is so small you need a magnifying glass to read it on the printed page. I realize I can change each event, but that will take forever to do and I have lots of new entries I need to make.
Also, the older version had less space between the events, thus allowing more events to be placed in a day's cell. How is the default spacing for that changed?
Older version allowed untimed events to be shown before timed events and I haven't found the right way to do that in the newer version.
you will see in that "History of Calendar Creator" that, after Calendar Creator was released by Softkey (after being purchased from PowerUp), the Calendar Creator software was subsequently released by The Learning Company. Then, after Calendar Creator was released under the Broderbund brand name, Calendar Creator was completely redesigned for version 7. And, since that redesign, many of the features in later versions of Calendar Creator work in a different manner than the same versions in CC 2. And, some of the features in CC 2 are no longer available in CC 12.
As to your question about a global change to the font, since many of the global options in CC 2 were removed when CC was redesigned, the only global option for fonts is to change the font for each category. Then, the fonts for *most* of the events for that category will automatically be switched to the new font. However, if the font for an event has ever been manually edited in the past, the font for that event *might* not be automatically changed after the font for the category is changed. When that happens, the only option is to either change each event manually OR to delete the event then recreate the event - which should cause the event to be created in the correct font and should allow the font for that event to be automatically changed when the font is changed for that category in the future.
As to where you said this:
"How is the default spacing for that changed?"
It is not possible to change the default spacing for any event - because, in the newer versions of Calendar Creator, all event spacing is controlled by the program.
