Pimlical Android Help

Master Preference List

Pimlical/Android features a large number (needless to say, an often overwhelmingly large number for the new user!) of preference settings that control the display of items or the way in which the program operates. It is not necessary to know all these preferences as default values are picked that suit the needs of most users. But for power users, it's likely worthwhile to scan through all the preference settings quickly to get some measure of what items can be changed in the program. Note that the Find button can be used to quickly locate a preference by name.

timed
untimed
In the Day/Day+ view a tap on a timeslot can either make all items timed ("timed") or untimed ("untimed") - or you can use "choose" in which case a tap on the timeslot in the Day/Day+ view forces an item to be preset to that time, while a tap outside of the timeslot sets the item to be untimed (in Day+ view, a tap anywhere on the timeslot makes item timed, while tap on untimed slot will make an event untimed).

MonthNumbersAtTopBooleantrueSet to true to put month numbers at top right, rather than bottom right. Note that when placed at top right, every cell loses space for text, so it's less efficient (but may be more familiar to have it there).

ContactPhotoListSize integer 120 Size in pixels for the contact photo in the contacts list
BackupLocalContacts integer 1 Number of days between backing up Local Contacts database if there is a local contacts database and it was accessed (1 = daily, 2 = every other day, etc.). Set to 0 to avoid backing up local contacts database completely
ContactsViewNoteFont font Arial-Plain-14 Default font for displaying the text of the note field in the Contacts View Dialog
AlwaysShowCompanyName boolean true Set to false to hide the company name on first/last name sorts.
ContactPictureDisplay stringlist always|

System Settings

Preference Name Type Default Description
GoogleRefreshInterval int 0 Refresh interval for re-reading Google/Android Calendar (on next screen redraw) in seconds (for example 900 = 15 minutes). Set this to 0 to turn off the automatic refresh completely. Avoid problem values like 5 seconds as that won't work well.
GenerateTagsForExceptions boolean true Android only handles one ExDate command, so Pimlical has to put any additional exception dates in a tag if true. When this bug is fixed in Android, this can be set back to false.
UseGoogleExtendedProperties boolean false (Note: this preference is always considered false as there is no support yet for extended properties in Android). If true, Pimlical will use Google's extended properties to preserve special items. If false, tags are created in the note field (Google's 'description' field). If other programs are accessing and updating Google Calendar, it's possible they may trash or not properly preserve the extended proprties field, in which case it's safer to set this to false and have the properties saved in the note field.
IgnoreTentativeStatusInGC boolean true Some updates of GC (such as from Android devices) mark everything as Tentative (!), so you can set this preference to true to avoid having that happen.
RegisteredUserName string PimlicalUser Set your registered name in Pimlical/Desktop here if you sync with the desktop, so that Pimlical knows you are the same person who is using the desktop version (helps avoid unnecessary creator tags).
DebugMode boolean false When set to true, several debug routines are enabled in Pimlical. Some may impact performance to a slight degree, but if you are experiencing some unusual problems, turning on Debug mode may enable a test which will show why a problem is occurring. Turning on Debug mode also enables Crash Reporting where a stack trace of where any crashes that occur are sent to Pimlico for analysis. The only item other than the stack trace that is sent includes Android version, Android device model, P/A version and primary email address of user (so crash report can be linked to a user). No personal data is sent.
DaysBackToRead int -1 The Number of days to go back for reading events on Android calendars only. Non-recurring events more than this number of days old (or recurring events that end before this number of days in the past) will not be displayed - this will speed up the refresh significantly if you have a lot of old events. A value of -1 indicates that all non-recurring events are to be read.
MayHaveFloatingEvents boolean true An internal flag maintained by Pimlical to determine if there are any floating events in the database. If false, there is no point in scanning the database for them. If true, there MIGHT be some floating events, so the database should be scanned (but a setting of true does not GUARANTEE that there are some floating events present).
FloatAdvanceSetsDirtyFlag boolean false If false, the dirty flag is not set by Pimlical when advancing floating events in a local database. Depending on the foreign database being used, this allows control over how the synching strategy on that database operates. This preference has no affect if the item is in an Android calendar, syncing with google. If you are using DirectSync, set this preference to TRUE on both platforms. If syncing through Google, typically, this would only be set on the one platform that is updating Google calendar.
LastFloatingUpdate date 20071214T183004Z Remembers the date on which the last floating update was performed (this is only used in standalone mode and normally managed by Pimlical).
NumberOfBackups int 0-10 5 specifies how many backup copies are to be retained of the various databases that Pimlical modifies
WeeklyMonthlyBackups stringlist weekly
monthly
weekly & monthly
neither
Takes weekly and/or monthly backups of all PIM databases and system files so you have an older version to go back to if needed. Weekly = weekly only, monthly = monthly only, weekly&monthly = weekly and monthly, neither = no weekly nor monthly backup.
MaintainAuditTrail boolean false If True (default setting) an audit trail of every change to the calendar and tasks databases is maintained in PimlicalAuditTrail.txt file
AuditDescriptionLength int 40 Always truncate description/note/location field of record to be no longer than this number of characters (use a very large value to always include the entire description).
CurrencyDelimiter string . Currency delimiter to use in export function (4.25 etc.)
RepeatTasksHaveNoExceptionList boolean true set false if they do have exceptions list.
LastPurgeOfDeletedRecords date 20090101T000000Z Remembers the date on which deleted records were last removed from the PIM databases (this is only used in standalone mode, and normally managed by pimlical).
CheckForNewSoftwareRelease int + 14 Check for new software release every number of days specified here. Set to 0 to completely disable this feature.
ShowHelpOnStartup boolean true Set to false to avoid having Pimlical display the HELP file on startup (Pimlical automatically sets this to false after displaying the Help dialog one time).
CalendarNamesAreUnique boolean true Set to false to allow the reading of calendars with the same name. If true, calendar names, even across multiple accounts, must be unique.
NoMeetingIconIfOnlyOneAttendee boolean true Set to false to include meeting information when I am the only attendee (based upon match of primary mail account with meeting account email).
CalendarIsNotSynced boolean false Only set this to true if you never sync the Android calendar
CalendarIsNotCached boolean false Only set this to true if you are having a problem with Pimlical/Android reading the cached calendar file.
CurrentLocalCalendar string PimlicalLocalCalendar Name of the current local calendar being read by Pimlical
IgnoreAndroidCalendarTimeZone boolean false If the Android calendar has the wrong timezone and is screwing up the times of events, set this to true, and Pimlical/Android will then force the timezone to match the Home Time Zone.
SaveCreationModificationInfo boolean true Set to false if you want to avoid saving the creation date/modification date, modifier and creator info in the Android calendar database's tagged note field/extended attributes. However, setting this to false may interfere with syncing with some other calendars. If Pimlical/Desktop also syncs information to other platforms, be sure to leave this set to true as otherwise that could interfere with DirectSync to Pimlical/Android.
LocalCalendarSelected boolean false Set to true to select the local calendar - this is normally done automatically by Pimlical from the Menu | Select Calendars dialog - but you can also preset this value in different filters, etc.
HideAllAndroidCalendars boolean false Set to true if using local calendar and you don't want to see any Android calendars at all in selection list, etc.
DaysToKeepDeletedRecords int + 7 Set how long to keep deleted records in the Pimlical Local Calendar (deleted records are needed in syncing to remove corresponding record from other platform, so be sure you don't end up removing deleted records before they get synced)
BackupLocalCalendar int + 1 Number of days between backing up Local Calendar if there is a local calendar (1 = daily, 2 = every other day, etc.). Set to 0 to avoid backing up local calendar completely
IgnorePrivateEventSetting boolean false Set to TRUE to have Pimlical completely ignore the PRIVATE event setting flag in the Android database. Note that if you set this preference to TRUE and modify an event, it won't be marked as a private event when synced back to Android/Google calendar.
StartTagChar string [ Determines which character is used at the START of an embedded tag in the note field and the [xx] downcount field in floating events. Caution: use care in changing this preference. If you sync through google, it's very important that these characters match up with the same preference in Pimlical/Desktop (that also just gained these same two preference settings). If they are out of sync with each other, all that custom information can be lost and that could cause major headaches in trying to restore everything. This would only be needed in special cases where some other application was also trying to put tags in the note field and was using the same delimiting characters.
EndTagChar string ] Determines which character is used at the END of an embedded tag in the note field and the [xx] downcount field in floating events. Caution: use care in changing this preference. If you sync through google, it's very important that these characters match up with the same preference in Pimlical/Desktop (that also just gained these same two preference settings). If they are out of sync with each other, all that custom information can be lost and that could cause major headaches in trying to restore everything. This would only be needed in special cases where some other application was also trying to put tags in the note field and was using the same delimiting characters.
FastStartup boolean true Set to false to disable fast startup. There would never be a reason to set this to false unless some specific problem with the Fast Startup was suspected.
ViewType int 0-6 1 Specifies the startup view - normally maintained by Pimlical - if you change this value it's setting is not likely to be preserved. 0=preserve, 1 = Day, 2 = Day+, 3 = Week, 4 = Month, 5 = Month+, 6 = list
CustomAutoCompleteText boolean false Set to true to use a custom auto-complete text function rather than standard autocomplete Function
EnableDebugLog boolean false Set to true to enable debug logging - not recommended that Pimlical be left with this set for too long as it does cause some performance impact and the log file will get very large very quickly. Primarily for use only under advice/analysis by Pimlico Software.
JavaDefaultEncoding string Default encoding for reading Ascii Text etc. In theory, Android should use UTF-8 everywhere, but it doesn't. Setting encoding to UTF-8 may help with non-Roman languages, but may cause issues with Accented characters entered in different encodings. If left blank, the default encoding for the operating system is used. The value here should match any platform you sync Pimlical to.
CurrentPimlicalVersion string   Set to current version on startup - may be used to insert new menu functions/features when upgrading version - normally just for information
HttpAddressesForSyncStringHttp Network address(es) of your PC running P/D to use for DirectSync. Enter a value like 192.168.1.4. You can have multiple Http adddresses separated by a comma or vertical bar. Pimlical will always move the most recent connection that worked to the top of this list.
InternetTimeoutint 100-10000005000Timeout in Milliseconds for testing to see if IP Address is reachable in DirectSync.
LastAndroidReadDateDateIntended for System use Only - remembers the last date/time on which Android native contacts were read into Pimlical local contacts
iCalendarImportCategoryApptCategoryWhen importing iCalendar events, you can specify one or more categories into which all newly imported events will be placed. Otherwise, if nothing is specified here, the item will be placed in the designationed category (if there is an iCalendar field for the category) and if not, then it will be put in the Unfiled Category.
WidgetRefreshInterval(int +)2Refresh widget interval in minutes. Widget is only refreshed while device is awake.
CurrentActiveFilter(Filter)defaultThe currently active filter when Pimlical exited - normally this is ONLY changed by the system and not something you as a user would normally change.
LongDurationForMessagesbooleanfalseSet to True to have popup messages ("toasts") stay on the screen for a longer period of time.
FingerSlipThresholdint-1Defines the threshold in pixels for inadvertently sliping finger on screen to discriminate between a fling or scroll and a brief tap or long press that the finger slipped while performing. Set this to -1 to allow Pimlical to pick an appropriate value for your screen size/resolution. Or you can manually set a value for this preference - the default of -1 is changed to a value that corresponds to about 1/10th of an inch (2.5mm).
AutoSyncFilePathStringDropbox/
PimlicalAutoSync/
Sets the path to use for AutoSync (If it begins with 'Drive' this is on google drive, otherwise it is assumed to be a valid path in the file system (possibly a networked drive, mapped WebDAV server, etc.).
AutoSyncFrequencyDuration0sSpecifies how often AutoSync runs (reasonable value might be something like 15m)
AutoSyncNameString(none)Specifies the unique Name for AutoSync - will be automatically assigned by Pimlical if left blank - but you can enter a more meaningful name (like Home Laptop).
AutoSyncThresholdDuration5mMaximum duration for AutoSync to run (after this time, the task will be killed if still running and the lock flag removed).
DisplayMessageWhenAutosyncCompletesBooleantrueSet this to false to prevent a brief 'toast' appearing at the conclusion of every AutoSync.
LocalCalendarSyncThresholdInt10If the difference in modification date/times of two items is LESS than this threshhold value (in seconds), then the two items are considered to be identical. Normally, there would be no reason to change this value.
DirectSyncOptionsStringsListcalendar,tasksDetermines which checkboxes are checked in DirectSync, use calendar,tasks,contacts,memos to sync everything.
AutoSyncOptionsStringsListcalendar,tasksDetermines which Databases are synced in AutoSync.
AutoSyncActionStringListSynchronizeSelect default synchronization modefor AutoSync. Normal Setting is Synchronize, but on very FIRST sync, you should overwrite from good platform to the one that has no/old data.
ApptCategoriesToSyncApptCategory(All)Specifies which Appointment categories are to be synced with AutoSync and/or DirectSync.
TaskCategoriesToSyncTaskCategory(All)Specifies which Task categories are to be synced with AutoSync and/or DirectSync.
ContactCategoriesToSyncContactCategory(All)Specifies which Contact categories are to be synced with AutoSync and/or DirectSync.
MemoCategoriesToSyncMemoCategory(All)Specifies which Memo categories are to be synced with AutoSync and/or DirectSync.
LatestUpdateAlwaysPrevailsBooleantrueSet to true to automatically have the latest update made in Pimlical OR Server Calendar (Google/Drive/Dropbox, etc.) prevail if the item has been modified on both platforms. If false, updates are written to both platforms for you to manually resolve.
