Go to More Tools -> Preferences
There are 3 VERY important settings that you can enable to help make this faster.
2. Retain Category: if you are a person who likes to enter each entry separately for a Category, then enabling this to on will help you out also when entering historical "lights". No more resetting of the category. It will keep the spinner set to the last Category entered.
3. Retain Number of Lights: this is not as important but maybe you are entering an entire week's worth of "lights" and you are entering them by day and category and you know you had the same number for each day. This is what will keep that number spinner on the last previous entered number.
These preferences are only there to help you stay compliant by allowing "entering of your daily lights" to be as flexible as possible. So go ahead and quickly enter past lights to create the complete picture. It's easy and fast.
