in Outlook 2013 I can set a standard reminder of 15 minutes in the settings. This does work if I create a new calender item via menu. But if I open the calender and double click on a date to create an appointment the reminder box is always set to none.

Does anyone have the same problem or know a solution how to fix it? (Maybe I missed a setting?) Because usually I create new items via double click and I want to have a reminder set automatically. Thanks.
