In Options/Events tab, would like to be able to specify a default font family and size for when events are first entered.

We don't have an option on the Event Editor for this, but we do expose some CSS hook:

http://www.localendar.com/docs/display/lc/Custom+Calendar+CSS

As noted on the bottom of that page, you can use these hooks to set default fonts/formats on your calendar (if you are using the fully interactive embedded calendar style, you can use these hooks right in your own site's CSS)

OK, I really need your help and fast! I am the AD at a 55+ resort. I implemented this calendar over the summer and the season is about to begin. My first meeting is on Monday and I hear they are not happy with the calendar.

I need a way to increase the font size for the events upon printing. I'm not a coder. Are you able to help me in some way? Please? And is there a way to get rid of the header and footer and the arrow to make the meat of the calendar larger so the font can be bigger?

Per my note above to member EDAC, you'd have to use some custom CSS on your site if you wanted to increase the font size everywhere.

The static-embed calendar style does not have the Arrows, so it will take a little less room (and if you don't want a title shown, you can just deleted it under Options->General)

But the CSS hooks are the only way to perform the sort of drastic/widespread customization you are after. We don't have an admin screen for that.

Did you try the sample tip on the link above? For example, if you paste this in your calendar Title field (under Options-General) this will increase the size of all of the event titles:
<style>.m-usr{font-size:32px;}</style>

(this will be for the regular and printable views btw)

Awesome, this is what I was trying to do!
The other thing I wanted is to make my own arrows.
I put this code
<style>.mar-usr{background-image: url(img/arrow-r.png);}</style>
into the header of my site, but it didn't seem to change it.
Is this something I should be able to change?

I believe that is close.. but you need to specify the full path (starting with http://) to your image file.

hmmm, it is still not using the new arrow.
Should I be using something besides "background-image:"?

This is what I have right now, I got the fonts working correctly so I know it should be reading the style tag correctly.

<style>.mar-usr{background-image: url(http://eyeopenercomics.com/img/arrow-r.png);}</style>

I appreciate the feedback!

EDIT:
If I add the !important tag it will put my arrow there, but instead of replacing the default on, it puts it behind it.

Hmm. that should probably work, but I could also have just pointed you to this page in our docs which does it a little differently:

http://www.localendar.com/docs/display/lc/Using+custom+images+for+the+calendar+forward+and+back+arrows

The script on that page will page sure it replaces the arrows only after the page is completed loading (I never did ask exactly how you were publishing your calendar)
