Get rid of the color dots and turn them into colored bars for the specific event

I had this same problem too.  But I found if you select "private" versus "default visibility" when you set up the event, it will show the color bar rather than the color dot.  (It's right next to  "busy" or "free" on the left side).

Color bars only show up with all day checked, and no notifications.  Timed events get the dot and notifications.  I didn't find that public vs private worked for me.

I tried changing to private but it didn't work.  Please, Google, make this happen.  Certain events need the color bar to highlight them - min in that category are medical appoints.
