how to manage calendar categories (add and define colors)

Posted

I am trying to manage categories in Lightning calendar. I would like to add categories and select a s pecific color for each category.

When I try to add a new category I have te same problem discussed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1255914 In this question there is an answer that suggests to create a new category in Tools/Options/Calendar/Categories. However, I do not find Options/Calendar/Categories under Tools.

In the attached picture there are three screenshots that show the options that I see under Tools and in the Calendar Preferences

[Ubuntu 18.04, Thunderbird 60.7.0 (64-bit), Lightning 6.2.7]

Chosen solution

On Linux, Tools/Options is Edit/Preferences. The Categories tab is there, but not obvious due to a Linux bug. Where you see the string 'General Reminders Categories Views', click on Categories to show the Categories tab (see picture).
