I just had a short look at the new week-/day-function: Great! Thank you very much for implementing this!

There is a graphical glitch though with two events that take place at the same time (week-view). The text of the first event is not wrapped. If needed I can provide a screenshot. (one is categorized as "Party" and the other one as "Event")

bye

edit:
After changing width and hight of the week-viewer this behaviour vanished.

What do you think of adding a forward- and back-button to the week-viewer. This way you could better plan the future week(s). Thank you for considering.

edit:
Adding an option to exclude categories/calenders would be another idea. I guess things will pop up bit by bit, while working with this wonderful tool.

I was able to reproduce the problem with the event text. I'll fix that.

The forward and back buttons will also be added to the views. It was already planned but I didn't have time to implement them yet. You can now use arrow keys from keyboard to change the weeks but I just noticed that they don't work at least on the Mac version.

The include/exclude settings (in Options->Skins) for the window should already work for the week and day views too.

Thank you for the instantaneous answer!
1. Arrow keys work great in Win7 RTM 64bit (thanks for the hint)
2. I overlooked the settings for excluding/selecting categories/calendars

Here are some further ideas:
Since the week-view is rather large, could you add the option to add a keyboard shortcut to toggle the visibility of a specific element (calendar, week-view, time, etc...)? This would be very handy.

Would it in general be feasible to more easily resize single elements? For example adding a tiny rectangle in the lower right corner of each element that by clicking enables the user to directly change the size of this element? (low priority)

And something a little more far fetched: What do you think of creating a printable version of the week-view? To give you an idea of what I mean take a look at this link (random data!): LINK (low priority)

I am not sure whether this is a beta issue:
The first element always is lacking of the icon (see screenshot).

The hotkeys can be used to change the visibility of a single window too but you would have to create a lua script which toggles the specific window. Alt + number works too but the focus must be in Rainlendar when the key combination is pressed.

Support for resizing and more options for printing are in my backlog too so they will be implemented eventually.

The menu issue is weird since it happens only when the menu is opened the first time. I tried to debug the issue a while ago but could not figure out the reason for the behavior. I'll be upgrading the 3rd party libraries soon so hopefully that will fix the problem.
