    Is "copy" in new week calendar view broken?

    When I tap an entry in the new week calendar view and select "copy" it doesn't seem to do anything... it doesn't bring up a copy of the original like the tap-and-hold copy does in other views. There's no "paste" function that I can see either - how is this supposed to work?

    Also, is tap-and-hold going to be added to this new view?

    You're right. I suspect that functionality is right now tied to the grid UI which this week view doesn't have. They may need to find a different way to provide it. Alternatively, you can switch week view when you want to copy and paste, but hoping fpr something more elegant since I pprefer the new week view.
    Sadly, I can no longer use CL or DJO as I have replaced Outlook with Thunderbird and Pimlical Desktop. Pimlical, since moving to Java 8 is no longer compatible with Companion Link. I will lurk about just because I am interested. Please let me know if the Pimlical compatibility problem ever changes and thanks to all here for your support and help over the years. This is the best software for synching Outlook to Android.

    I referred this to the developer. It will be fixed soon in our leading edge release. Until then, please use copy from day view.

    Thanks much! I would think that, eventually, all entries should support the tap-and-hold menu, if possible.

    Yeah, I switch to the list view and tap-and-hold to copy. But it would be nice to be able to do that anywhere, of course (or, if hit "copy" while viewing an individual record, it would open a copy of it right away).

    Some of you all might be interested in the feature request I just made which relates to copying events based on user defined interval patterns:

    Tim the copy on week view will be fixed in the beta, and will go into general release. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Is that tap-and-hold copy, or copy from within the single-recording view? The 2nd doesn't seem to work anywhere at present (though I didn't enter the single-record view from every other view to check). Is it supposed to do anything at all?

    Sounds like a neat idea - kind of like Templates, but more so. Might be tough to implement, what with all the other features they want to add/improve, but good ideas!

    Thanks! I'm glad to know it resonates with others! Yeah, it's sort of like an on-the-fly template, but the recurrence element is what really sets it apart (in my opinion).
