Default reminder will not set in Outlook 2013 using double click

I am using Outlook2013 32 bit on a Windows 8 64 bit system.  My default reminders is enabled and set for 1 day.

If I right click and add an event, the reminder is set per the default.

If I double click and add an event, the reminder does not get set. It shows as "None"

Is this by design, a setting or registry entry that needs tweaking or a bug in Outlook?

For the MVP's that monitor these threads - this is repeatable on four different machines.

It's by design since it defaults to Free, which defaults to no reminders. (Appointments will have the default reminder, only all day events created this way don't have reminders.) Click on it after creating it and the Calendar Tools ribbon comes up - you can set a reminder then.
