Default Re: Running OS 6. How to get just OS 5 Calendar back!

Thanks for the reply. Sorry, my answer is a bit long... Using the BBSAK desktop application I added a COD file to my OS 6 containing all the sounds old ringers and notifiers from OS 5. Now my OS 6 has tons of the classic BB ringers to pick from. While doing so I noticed the huge list of COD files that are part of OS 6. Within that list were the COD file for Calendar, Messenger, etc... and basically all the individual parts of the OS system. So I thought it might be possible to separate the Calendar COD file from OS 5 using the same desktop BBSAK program, remove the COD Calendar file from OS 6 and replace it with the Calendar COD from OS 5. I don't like the new Calendar because the views and functionality on OS 6 have visual and entry limitations in the DAY or WEEK calendar views. They are really inconvenient because they don't show the full 8 hour range in either of those views. In OS 5 I could glance at the full week view and see all the days 8 hours listed from top to bottom without having to use the touch pad. As well with both WEEK and DAY views there are no entry points when viewing the calendar at the half hour marks... which made making an appointment at the half hours quick and easy. Such a bummer as these changes make it slower to make appointments, and more cumbersome to view the 8 hours for all days of the week at a quick glance.
