Copy Overlay

Post by Radio_Sachsen_Eins »

Hello,

we want to use Proppfrexx mainly for automation run. So I will create a fix week like a preset that we can copy to the following weeks. My problem is now, that the value: " show in advance " in the overlay scheduling is changing to "0", when I copy, but I planed all the events in future. The first event is at 26. September.
2nd problem is, if I copy the whole week, I can not drop it to the next week. Only single days are possible.
I don't know my faults.
We using Version: v4.3.2.0

Once an overlay is executed, it‘s show in advance time is set to 0 to disable it. This is by design. You can still edit the time after you copied it.

But copying an overlay which was not started yet doesn’t set the time to 0, but leaves it unchanged!

You can also copy an overlay in the month view to any date in the future within that month. Here you can also copy an entire week (all selected entries).

So all you are missing is actually possible :-)

I got the problem. You can not copy recurrence overlays.

You can copy a recurring overlay - but it will indeed be 'converted' to a none-recurring entry (a single occurrence) and its Show in Advance time will be set to 0.
I.e. if you want to convert it back to a recurring entry, you would have to edit it. The reason is, that the copy operation (holding down the STRG key) can not distinguish, if you want to copy the series or an occurrence.
