Calendar entries missing (overflow?)

I use watchmaker to display the upcoming next 2 calendar events. I'm using 3 calendars and have a lot of entries. I also want to the the upcoming events of the next day. Setting this up works like charme and normaly everything is fine. Except sometimes, watchmaker doesn't show the next events. On the watch its seems, that there are just no more upcoming events. Blank entries. After midnight, the events will again show correctly.
I couldn't tear it down to a specific type of calendar entry nor to a specific calendar type (using internal and exchange calendars). I do think, that Watchmaker has a limited buffer of calendar entries, beginning at 0:00am. If there are too many entries for that buffer (from 0:00am till next day) than, after reaching the last entry, no more events can be displayed (because there are no more entries in the buffer). After midnight, the buffer gets flushed and newly filled beginning with the first entry of that day. So the upcoming events are than again displayed correctly.
Could this be?
Would be great, if this one could be corrected! :o)

I'm adding some information to this.

On days where it I have more than 9 calendar events, I'm not seeing the later events. I understand having the limits that are in place for the number of events and I'm fine with that. As the day goes on, the events are properly moving down (example, after event 1 is complete, event 2 becomes event 1 and event 3 is event 2, etc). But the issue is that event 10 does not become event 9. Fixing this would at least allow the later events to show up as the hours go by.

I just recently purchased this application and I am having the same issue...9 or more calendar​ events is fairly common for me

Please update

What Lew Galligan pointed out seems to be the case. I thought that the events were getting refreshed in earlier version.. Or may be earlier i had less than 9 events :(

Same issue. It had worked well previously, but now doesn't. Would really like to see a fix for this.

I have written custom lua function to manipulate calendar event begin time ie {c#b}. Works great for events 1 and 2 but throws c++ exception for {c3b} and above. Even attempting to assign to variable then manipulate variable throws the same c++ exception

I have a Samsung Gear Live watch and Moto 5g s Plus. None of my calendar entries are showing, ever. Not sure if this is related to the other issues in this thread. Any suggested fix?

...and as soon as I get around to posting, I find the issue: a duplicate calendar. Check your calendar selections folks, take it from me.

When i would in the main script define the calender-events (i.e. c1b or c1t or c1br) i become from then on c3b,... and similar an C+ Error ...

First i tought it is on my watch (SamsungGalaxyWatch) a buffer overrun because so much variables to store ... - because when i set that variables on "on_hour()" or "on_minute()" all run on watch is ok, but when the event run (min or hour) the face resets and start new ... I now that only because ucolor-"icon" came and the brightness is again full (when i "dim" it with a layer) ...

And i know, WatchMaker wide is "only" the calender events set to 2 (c2b) and 3 isn't there, but i can take it in text-layers (to 9 (c9b) ...
But in main script is it only possible to 2 (c2b) - after that i became c+ error or watch "crashed" :thinking:

Can you make all 9 cals system-wide open or as variable (like c1b & c2b) ... PLEASE!

_(I need it for alarm-vibration & sound-alarm on specific (calender)events - and i have sooo much full-day-events (like {c1br}==0 and {c1er}==360 ...) sooo c1b and c2b are tooooo short or too little!:sweat_smile:)_


But maybe a BUG or a REQUEST ... ?!??!?

Because, as example, c3b is in text-layers available BUT in scripting NOT ... - IN MY EYES IT IS A BUG (because no "systemwide" variable!) ... :-)

Same issue here with 1!! Calendar entry.
In app it is shown correct but my galaxy watch does not show any entries.

Stop payment for an app that is not working. I also stopped it due to that bug that is not cleared for months. Whatever they do with our money. They spend it not right..

We have the same issue with our test Watches, affecting all Android Wear and Samsung models.
Our watchfaces rely on calendar entries, so .. we cannot sell our faces anymore, getting too many complaints.
Sry but this is a no go. bye watchmaker..
