Hi @twsf,

Unfortunately, there is no direct solution to this bug at this time. However, there are a few options for your issues:

  • Avoid using ampersands in the hover text for your calendar entries. This is the simplest workaround, and it will prevent the bug from occurring in the first place.
  • View the hover text in the Calendar view instead of the To-Do Bar view. To do this, go to Calendar > View and make sure that the To-Do Bar checkbox is not selected.
  • Report to Microsoft: To report a bug in Outlook, you can do the following:

    • Open Outlook.
    • Click on "File."
    • Click on "Feedback."
