We have been using Calendar Creator at work for years and never had a problem--starting with version 4.x when it was on one 3.5" floppy disk. The 12.x version gave us problems since we were a Win10 shop and our IT department will not open the computer for me to be the administrator.
My computer recently got updated and we installed the 12.x version and all of the problems came back. I contacted Tech Support for help and they mentioned the new version and that it will work in Win10. They did tell me that it was completely overhauled. We went ahead and purchased and installed it yesterday. Imagine my surprise when I saw the new version. Many of the features that made 12.x so good are gone like creating one layout and it gets applied to all calendars in that workspace, bannered events, customize the categories so everything in the category looked the same.
I am very disappointed in this "update." To call this an update is an injustice to the original software. This is dumbing down of a good, useful software that helps manage multiple schedule. I am going to do my best to make it work but there is a lot that can be done to make this software better-- like bringing back the features that made Calendar Creator so great!
Any suggestions on how to modify the default categories so that when applied to events they all look the same instead of having to go to each event and update the format one at a tme?

You are correct that this is not an update of version 12. 2016 is a new Win 10 program marketed with the CC brand name. It's important that users provide feedback as to what features need to be reintroduced.
Regarding your question about setting up the categories, I don't know enough about the program, but hopefully someone who does can answer that question.

As far as suggested features for this version--bring back the core functionality of the Calendar Creator software. If I had to narrow the list down to two things it would be (1) ability to edit the categories per file so that everything that is assigned to a category has the same look and (2) the banner event function. If that can be accomplished I think many users will be happy.
I just looked into this forum for the first time in a couple of years because my version 12 does what I want and I didn't have any questions, so this information about the 2016 release is new to me. There is one thing I have to ask because I don't see a clear answer anywhere: does the new version open and use calendars created in version 12? Is all information about events saved and displayed? Thank you.

No, it definitely does not. However, it is possible to import a CSV file to the new program. You must create a CSV file from the old program first. Some people have posted that they had trouble with the CSV file being properly read into the new program.
So, just so I understand: If I use the new version I may/will probably lose records of my past entries and annual events such as birthdays. Is that right? If it is right, it is time for me to move to another calendar program.
