Changing To-Dos on Your Palm Device

The French have a saying, "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose," which means, "The more things change, the more they're the same." The neat thing about changing to-do items is that you basically follow the same steps to change an item as you did to enter it in the first place.

To change the priority of a to-do item, follow these steps:

1. With the To Do List open, tap the name of the task that you want to change.

The check box to the left of the item is highlighted to show which task you've selected.

2. To change the priority of your task, tap the number next to the name of the task.

A list of numbers 1 through 5 appears, as shown in Figure 1.


Figure 1: Set priorities to sort out what's really important.

3. Tap the number for the new priority that you want to give your task.

The highest priority is 1; the lowest is 5. When you tap a number, the list disappears and the new priority number appears next to your task.

To change the name of a to-do item, follow these steps:

1. With the To Do List open, tap the name of the task that you want to change.

The check box to the left of the item is highlighted to show which task you've selected.

2. Select the text that you want to change by drawing a horizontal line through it with the stylus.

The text is highlighted to show you've selected it.

3. Enter new text with either the on-screen keyboard or Graffiti.

The selected text is replaced by the text you enter.

To make further changes to a to-do item, follow these steps:

1. With the To Do List open, tap the name of the task that you want to change.

The check box to the left of the item is highlighted to show which task you've selected.

2. Tap Details at the bottom of the To Do List.

The To Do Item Details dialog box opens.

3. Make any changes that you want in the To Do Item Details dialog box.

You can use the same methods for changing the details of your task that you used to enter the details in the first place.

4. Tap OK.

The To Do Item Details dialog box closes and the To Do List reappears.
