[SOLVED] Doesn't always save settings (Appearance)

Post by VMUser » Thu May 03, 2012 3:01 pm

VueMinder doesn't always save settings (Appearance). If I change settings (e.g. colors or font) VueMinder chages it, but a few seconds later it changes it back to the old values.

But stored events stay with the new settings -- sometimes.

Very strange.

I think this might be related to the other problem you're seeing.

No, I think I found the reason:

All appearance settings are stored in the .ics file.

But when I change appearance settings there is no "Save" button (at least I don't find one). And most important: VueMinder does not automatically publish the new ics file with the new settings. Then after some minutes VueMinder reads the OLD ics file because of the subscribe settings and brings back the old appearance.

I would recommend to have a "Save" button which simply saves the settings and publishes it at once. I'm always searching for that missing Save button.

Karl

P.S.: It seems that even the "Publish Now" button does not publish the changed ics file immediately.

Hi Karl, thank you for the information. The Publish Now button will publish the updated appearance. It might take a few seconds, but it will publish. This should prevent the appearance from being reset the next time the calendar syncs.

I'll fix this in the next version, so changes to the calendar appearance are immediately published.
