    Hello there, just go an ipad mini. Great ... but ...

    Most of my life is based on items that repeat month by month. For example, I play bridge with a lady on the second Tuesday of every month, and will probably do so for years. How do I put this recurring event in the Calendar? I cannot even find a way to copy an event. All I can see is to put in each event separately. Since I have about 20 or so events every month this will take forever.

    Anyone able to help me please?

    No, I am afraid it doesn't. If you try that you will find the repeats do *not* include the possibility of 'every second Tuesday' and the like.

    But for anyone who reads this witH the same problem, I have found a workaround. If I use icloud and put items in the Calendar
    via my PC, then there it is possible because it allows Custom repeats of that sort.

    Ah now I understand.....I was mistakenly thinking you meant every other Tuesday.......I should start to read everything at least twice before I answer!

    To make it worse, the same problem with no workaround seems to happen in Reminders.

    If it helps, I also use Pocket Informant and this allows for both bi-weekly appointments and custom repeats.....

    There are different versions, this is the one that I use

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/pocket-informant-pro/id380732176?mt=8 but it might be worth looking at the other versions to see what works best for you (oh, and PI also integrates with your Reminders).

    I hope that helps.

    If all else fails you could change your bridge day to every 4th Tuesday :eek:
    Merry Christmas.
