Yearly recurring event of 3 weeks duration

Post by gmh » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:46 pm

I am trying to set up an event of 22 days duration (Monday 3rd October to Monday 24th October 2011)- with a recurrence yearly on the first Monday of October.
I get the error message:
Recurring events overlap. The event duration is large enough to cause occurrences of the recurring event to overlap.
Any suggestions to avoid the error?

Hi gmh, thanks for letting me know about the problem. I'm seeing this as well, and will work on a correction for the next version.

In the meantime, the workaround is to set the duration to 1 day. Click the "Save" button on the toolbar, and then adjust the duration to 22 days.

Hi Dan
I'll wait for the full version 8.3.0 as I used your work-around to keep me going.

Thanks again, gmh
