Moving Adroitly in APPT's Month View
-------------------------------------------------------------
You can move around quickly in Appointment Books Month view by using the following shortcuts. 

(Fn) (UpArrow) -- Moves the cursor to same day position in the previous month. For example, if your cursor is on the first Monday in July, pressing (Fn) (UpArrow) moves the cursor to the first Monday in June. 

(Fn) (DownArrow) -- Moves the cursor to same day position in the following month. For example, if your cursor is on the first Monday in July, pressing (Fn) (DownArrow) moves the cursor to the first Monday in August. 

(Fn) (LeftArrow) -- Moves the cursor to the first day in that months Month view (not necessarily the first day of the month). 

(Fn) (RightArrow) -- Moves the cursor to the last day in that months Month view (not necessarily the last day of the month). 

(CTRL) (LeftArrow) -- Moves the cursor to the last appointment selected to display in Appointment Books Month view (i.e., the most recent appointment relative to where the cursor is now). For example, if your cursor is on July 28th, pressing (CTRL) (LeftArrow) will move the cursor to the most recent appointment showing in Appointment Books Month view, in this case July 5th. If the most recent appointment was in a previous month, the cursor would go to that month. 

(A dash (-) in front of an appointment signifies an appointment that occurs in the pm. Appointments without a dash (-) in front of them fall in the am. Events are preceded by an x.) 

(CTRL) (RightArrow) -- Moves the cursor to the next appointment selected to display in Appointment Book's Month view. For example, if your cursor is on July 5th, pressing (CTRL) (RightArrow) moves the cursor to the next appointment showing in the Month view, in this case July 28th. If the next appointment selected to display in the Month view was in a following month, the cursor would go to that month.

Get around Appointment Book's delete limit 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The Palmtop will not let you delete a repeating Event more than 100 times. If you have a daily repeating Event (that you also delete daily), you will eventually get an error message telling you that you cannot delete an Event more than 100 times. To get around this obstacle, follow the steps below. 

1. When you get an error message telling you that you cannot delete an Event more than 100 times, press (ESC) to clear the message from the screen. 

2. Highlight the Event at the Appointments screen, then press (ENTER). 

3. At the Appointment/Event screen, press (F8) (Repeat). 

4. At the Daily Repeat Options screen, use the ArrowKeys to select the No Repeat option, then press (F10) (OK) (F10) (Done). 

5. At the Appointments screen, go back into the Event (by pressing (ENTER)) and change the Repeat option back to Daily.

CORRECTION

Two parens were omitted from the Solver equation for BMI in the previous Palmtop Newsletter.

As given:
BodyMassIndex=(Weight_in_lbs/2.2)/((Feet*12+inches)/3.94^2)*100
!For men: BMI ideally is 22..24, for women: 21..23 !

Much better:
BodyMassIndex=((Weight_in_lbs/2.2)/((Feet*12+inches)/3.94)^2)*100
!For men: BMI ideally is 22..24, for women: 21..23 !

Our apologies for the typo. Those of you who got BMI's over 1000 may now get off your treadmill and break open that box of chocolate chip cookies.<g>
