How can I customise the list of categories shown in the dropdown list when the [Categorize] button is pressed while adding a new Calendar appointment?

Not open for further replies.


There are 15 Categories shown in this list - but I have many more than this defined.

Is there a way of custmising this list by selecting the Categories that I want to be displayed ?

(At the moment, I have to press the [All Categories] button when I want to assign a Category that is not shown in the initial list)


Hi Diane - thanks for your reply - but it wasn't the news I was wanting to hear.

It's a real pain the way it is.
