Hi there,

I was wondering if it is possible to set up multiple default reminders for events in Lightning. It is impossible using the normal interface, but I have been playing around with the config:editor and found


but I am unable to figure out if I can set multiple of them. I know I can set them up for every event individually, but was looking for a more general solution.

Most of the general settings can be set via option window. Other settings have to be changed via config editor. Click tool menu at the top of the Thunderbird window and click the add-ons item. Select the lightning extension and click the option button. There will be different set of properties for calendar.

Thanks! Oh, I am sorry I haven't included this. Yes, of course, I tried that first, but there you can only set a single alarm. This is the reason I went to the config editor in the first place. ;)

Have you tried Custom from the Reminders drop down when creating an event?
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
