    I can't figure out how to make it organize according to block scheduling :/

    Disregard. I can't find the "delete" feature. Is there one? Planbook does not appear to support a block scheduling function; instead, it appears you just have to mute a class on days in which it doesn't meet.

    You should be able to design it however you would like. I used it last year.

    Well, it appears, from what I could best ascertain, that you can set up classes on specific days, but it becomes slightly more complicated when classes fall on different days (for example, my class schedule is set up as an "A" day or "B" day; specific classes are on either day. However, due to shifting schedules, "A" day classes are not always on M/W/F; sometimes they are on Tu/R. The best I could seem to do was put every class on every day, then, on the individual days, mute the classes that are not held on a particular day. It's just an extra step--nothing too complicated.

    Ah. Are you using the free trial or have you purchased it already?

    I purchased it for this year. I think this is my third year using it. But my previous schedules were easier, but since I've switched schools, the schedule is completely different, and therefore not as easy to do in PB (or so it would appear). Were you going to recommend something else?
