    Categories no longer work in DejaCalendar

    Hi.

    My phone (LG G3, with Verizon) recently updated to Android 6.0.

    Since then, I have not been able to choose a category when making an entry in the DejaCalendar or DejaContacts. The categories that were there in previous entries are still there. They can only be changed to no category (i.e, deleting the category if there is one). The categories still show up to select, but nothing happens if I select one. There is a default category, and that still shows up on the Calendar for new entries, but it cant be changed to anything else, except no category (when deleted). I have restarted the phone but this doesn't change anything. DejaOffice is up to date according to the PlayStore.

    What's up? Thank you.

    I'm on Android 6.0.1 and have never had this happen (including stock 6.0). Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling (this won't affect your data-- it will still be there when you reinstall)?

    I'm really not sure what would cause that behavior.
    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.

    poder, there are two different category selectors. Let's see what one you have set, and try the other.

    Go to Settings, Category Settings
    The first option is "multiple selection category filter". If you have this checked, uncheck it. If this is not checked, then check it.

    This controls which selector is displayed, the single select or the multi-select.

    Tell me what you find.

    Multiple selection category unchecked

    Thanks for your reply.

    The multiple selection category filter was checked, so I unchecked it.

    This had no effect on being able to select a category. I.e., I get the menu of choices, but when I click on one, there is no change to the category. I have a default category, and if I try to set a new category, it gives me that one. If I try to change an existing category, I cannot add a category, and if I delete the default category, I get a "no category". I did close and reopen the app in case that made a difference, but it did not.

    Thanks, Hook,

    No, I had not tried to reinstall. I will keep that in mind if anything more direct doesn't work. I don't know that it was the Android update, but that was coincident.

    Same here. Verizon LG G3. Categories cannot be chosen for calendar entries. I've uninstalled and re-installed the program with no success. Thank you for your effort.

    Thanks, Cecil. It worked. Another issue that was fixed was the alarm sound. I could not change it. Now it can be set to the sound I prefer. The new layout looks pretty good too.
