    I'm sure this has been asked, but I can't find any references to it:

    When one starts typing in the daily view an untimed appointment is formed. Is there a way to tell it to make a floating event instead? Limiting the "New" button to floating event doesn't do it.

    Thanks!

    Try upgrading to Datebk6. When you select "New", you have the option of choosing these: Daily Journal, Todo, Floating Event, Appointment. (I can't remember if this was how it was set up in Datebk5 or not.)
    .

    VERY happy user of these GREAT apps:

    TAKEphONE, 2day, 4cast, 2dial.

    No, but this is on the list of things to look at as a few people have
    requested this.

    What you might consider doing is setting up the NEW button to create a
    Floating event by default instead of popping up the list. Note that you can
    still access all the items on the Popup list with a Tap&Hold of the stylus
    (or you can do it with a finger without too much trouble.

    It would require another preference option....
