Synchronizing Money Calendar projects

Posted in Money Calendar, Windows on Jan 10, 2013

Rylstim Budget is unable to synchronize data between several computers. Nevertheless, that does not mean it cannot be done, period. To synchronize, you can use services like Drop Box, Google Drive and similar ones. Let’s review synchronization using Drop Box.

Each Rylstim Budget project is stored as a separate file. Therefore, all you need to do in order to synchronize is place your project file to the Drop Box folder.

Copying project to Dropbox folder

To open a file with your project, you can just double-click on it. Every time you save the project, Drop Box sends the new data to your account.

Dropbox folder with a synchronized Rylstim Budget project

A couple of advantages of this method are:

  • You do not need to enter your Drop Box account details in Rylstim Budget.
  • You can place the file anywhere within the Drop Box folder as you find it most convenient.

Easy to copy, easy to paste

Posted in Money Calendar, Windows on Aug 22, 2012

A small improvement that for unknown reasons had not yet been implemented is now available in Money Calendar. We are talking about copying and pasting using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. This simple and trivial change does actually make the use of the application simpler.

What and where can you copy? You can copy, cut and paste financial transactions only. This can be used in the following two places:

  • Calendar: Allows copying all transactions of the day at once.
  • Transaction window: Allows copying individual records and paste any number of them.

The best way is to use the standard keyboard shortcuts. Just in case, let me remind you of those:

  • Copy – Ctrl+C
  • Cut – Ctrl+X
  • Paste – Ctrl+V

Configuring Backup in Money Calendar

Posted in Money Calendar, Windows on Aug 01, 2011

A light improvement that allows disabling backing up your project or changing the number of backup files.

To configure this option, use the "Options" window (Tools>Options).

Configuring Backup

If you do not need to backup, clear the check box.

To change the number of backup files, edit the number.

To apply and save changes, click OK.

How can you take advantage of the Shopping List?

Posted in Money Calendar, Windows on Dec 08, 2009

Have you ever experienced the situation when you have decided to buy something but have not decoded when you are going to do that? If you have, then you will probably like this new feature - keeping the buy wish list.

We have discovered that many, including us, use notepads, sticky notes try to keep in mind everything they would like to buy next month, next year or just some time in the future. Notepad - you can forget to look at it, the notes can be lost, and the thoughts can be forgotten.

We have solved this problem too. Now you can record all your purchase wishes in the same place where you do your financial planning.

Thus, you will not only "not forget" - but raise the chance to include the desired purchase in your plan.

The new version runs under Windows XP

We have made the changes that enabled running Usability Studio under Windows XP.

Rylstim Budget 4

Posted in Money Calendar, Windows on Oct 19, 2009

We have taught our program to automatically save all changes in a project, so you will no longer have to check whether or not your project has been saved.

The second, not a less important feature, is undoing last actions (Undo\Redo). That means you can now take any actions over your project and not worry for your data, as everything can be easily restored.

The rest of the changes primarily apply to the internal functioning of the program and eliminating errors found.

The update also features:

  • Changing calendar font.
  • Localizing categories.

And other minor improvements and bug fixes.
