Is it possible to span days with Calendar?

Postby Lucalus » Tue Oct 15, 2019 10:29 pm

I am attempting to create a calendar with the calendar package, but I need to be able to span days for certain events (rather than repeating them on subsequent days, I would like to partially "merge" the days). For example if an event spans two consecutive days in a week, I would like to still print the "box" for each day, but have one of the events go across both day boxes much like an overlay. I am considering trying to do this the hard way with a custom formatted table, but if I don't have to re-invent the wheel, that would be great. Am I asking too much (probably)? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Lucas,

welcome to the forum!

Perhaps post the code you have, so we can help getting it done, based on that instead of starting with zero or staying theoretical. Sounds interesting though.
