Outlook Sync adds breaks

Post by phrogdriver » Tue Oct 11, 2011 12:48 pm

Hello,

First, I want to tell you how much I enjoy using the calendar. However, I am working through some issues before purchasing.
I need the calendar to sync with Outlook, however at every sync it adds breaks to the lines I am using.
Generally, a header with a numbered list under it. The numbers keep getting further away from each other with every sync.

BEFORE
HEADER
1
2
3 ...etc.

After Sync
HEADER

1

2

3 ...etc.

And, every sync increases the distance by one break. Please let me know if there is something that will make that stop. Thanks

Rick

Hi Rick, welcome to the forums.

The problem you're seeing appears to be a bug. I'll work on fixing this in the next version and will let you know when a correction is available. I apologize for the inconvenience.

In the meantime, there is a workaround. In VueMinder, open the Event Editor. At the bottom of the "Description" tab, click the "Formatted Text" tab. Fix the description to appear the way you'd like and then save the event. The next time the calendar syncs, the description in Outlook will be fixed. Subsequent syncs will no longer add line breaks.

have you managed to solve this problem yet Dan, I now have the need to sync several calendars with Outlook 2010 and see this happening every sync. The workaround you suggest does not work for me as the formatting reverts again at the next Outlook sync.

A correction has been made for version 9.0, but it's not ready to be released yet. There should be a beta in the next week or two, if you're interested.

You know you don't have to ask Dan. Great to hear you have fixed the problem with Outlook.
