If you've installed Notes 8 and played around with it, you've noticed a few design changes (one or two). In the calendar, we thought it would be useful to give you good default colors so that the calendar would look like it was professionally designed, instead of letting our color-challenged users pick them. Problem is that if you installed over an existing Notes mail file, the calendar will use your existing color choices. The tell-tale sign is black text for entries, which to me looks a bit harsh because we are using a bold font for the titles. If you want to try the new colors, do the following:
1. In the Action Bar of the mail file, choose More...Preferences...
2. Choose the Calendar & To Do tab.
3. Choose the Colors tab.
4. Click the Restore Default Colors button (see picture below)
5. Click OK.
