Lightning plugin: How to force current day on calendar to move automatically?

Posted

I have Thunderbird constantly running. I use Lightning plugin for tasks.

The tasks view has a calendar. Two days can be marked there: today (blue) and the day to create task with (yellow). The first mark moves automatically. I expect the second mark to move to the next day when it starts. In other words (example): 22 May 19:00 - blue is on 22 May and yellow is on 22 May 23 May 10:00 - blue is on 23 May and yellow is on 22 May, but I want them both on 23 May.

How do I achieve this?

You may have misunderstood the purpose of the yellow marker. It is just the date that is currently selected by the user. As such, there is no reason why it should move autonomously.

Okay, but it is a quite uncomfortable to move it by hand every day. I have a setting for default task start set to current time plus 1 hour. If I hadn't moved the marker, the task is created with yesterday's date.

@Bruce the yellow marking IS moving as well as the blue on my Lightning 54.1.1 / TB 52.1.1 / win 7. If I keep TB open, Yellow stays on last selected, If I restart TB it shifts to "today"

This may be a difference in how Thunderbird works Linux vs. Windows.

ov7a, try: Create a new profile in Thunderbird. If the new profile works better, then import your stuff from the old profile to the new profile.

Unfortunately, this didn't help.
