Schedule events on every day except on weekends 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Hi,
I would like to create an event to display every day (at 10:00 AM) except for weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

I did:
1. New Event
2. Recurrence tab
3. Repeat every 1 Weeks. Checked: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu and Fri. Sat unchecked. But! Sun is grayed out and checked. How can I un-gray and uncheck this option?

My system: Rainlendar Lite 2.12.2 on Windows XP.

Thanks

You started the event a Sunday. Start a Monday, so Monday is grayed out and checked.

I deleted the event and created a new one with weekly recurrence and now Wednesday is checked+grayed (today is Wednesday).

I have been working with tons of schedulers but I have never seen such a limitation... Is there a reason why current week day is greyed+checked?

Not current, but start of event date.
Not a bug, but a feature

Feature?
Why is this limitation? Don't get it.

grofaty, in the event tab of the New Event dialog, you will find the "Start Date" and "End Date". If you make a weekly recurrent event, then the event needs to happen on the start date.
If you click on "New event", by default the start date will be today. If today is Sunday, then the Sunday checkbox will be greyed out. If you don't want this, go back to the event tab, change the start date to the Monday, return to recurrence tab and then, the greyed out will be the Monday.

EDIT: There's no limitation. Example: you can't repeat an event every Tuesday and Thursday but start it on the Saturday. It can be only started on Tuesday or on Thursday.
