I want to add a schedule to ARM my cameras from 12 am to 7 am. I also want to schedule my OUTSIDE ARM mode from 7 pm to MIDNIGHT (or 11:59 pm). The system won't let me add both. So two different modes can't be scheduled on the same day? Really? That can't be right.

I do that all the time.  But I use two custom modes,  I don’t recall if that makes a difference.  I do recall I sometimes see odd behavior when creating a schedule, so try deleting everything on the schedule and starting over.  If that doesn’t work, try two custom modes.  Make a duplicate of ARM with your own name.  “MY RIGHT ARM” or whatever.

As a PS;

Only one mode can run at a time and they can not overlap...

so you split up the cameras into groups as needed( by creating custom modes ) and then schedule the Custom modes as needed.

If you go thru midnight, you must split the time... up to 11:59pm and then the next day at Midnight onward

Yes.  Same “day” is ok....same “time”, nope!
