When Maternity Organiser is the active calendar type, Layout menu has an additional item EDD.
You can set the expected date of delivery through EDD.
Either LMP (last menstrual period) or EDD (expected date of delivery) can be entered.
Although the date can be entered in many formats, yyyy-mm-dd eg 2004-09-01 is preferred, as this is unambiguous and should always be interpreted correctly.


When Itemised Organiser is the active calendar type, Layout menu has an additional item Columns.
This is used to set the number of columns (2 – 8) and the text for the column headers.
The column headers should be entered as a single line separated by semicolons (;) eg Alan;Barbara;Carolyn
