iCalViewer: Streaming iCal on your desktop « Hawk Wings. Interesting. I don’t tend to like these kind of finder/desktop integrations. They seem to cause problems when the Apples issues system updates.
Apple – Support – Discussions – deleting duplicate calendars …. Some great resources for managing your iCal calendars.
So Mr. Landau suggests two fixes for this problem.
- Click in the message area of the document and select “Make Plain Text” (Command-Shift-T) from the Format menu. While this tip works, it eliminates any hypertext links contained in the text. If you want to save such links, or otherwise preserve the initial rich text format…
- Cut the entire text (using Command-A followed by Command-X) and press the Delete key. This removes the black background. Next, use Option-Shift-Command-V to paste back the cut text. The text will now be readable, with links preserved.
Several suggestions. rventura said “
Apple – Support – Discussions – Unsubscribe …. One way to accomplish this if you don’t have anything important to save in it is to reset the sync history. Thanks John. “
This is an annoying problem if you are using iCal. Ferd II suggests this “Open your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Calendars Folder. Using “Get Info,” what is the Sharing & Permissions setting for the Calendar Cache file in that folder?”
To which Davegeek responded “I found when I checked the Cache file (which was where you pointed me too) it had under it permissions section a setting for “Everyone” as “Custom” I changed this to “Read and Write” and hey bingo! Problem solved. Thanks”
Its a little technical but Ferd II has the answer. “iCal events are stored in the Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Calendars Folder. That folder will contain sub-folders with alpha-numeric names. Each one of those sub-folders represent your individual calendars. There will also be an Info.plist file in the folder which will identify the specific calendar associated with that folder. Use Quick Look to identify the desired calendar.
The alpha-numeric folder will also contain an Events Folder with all of the events in that specific calendar. Use “Get Info” to see the details of the event. Get Info will display a date created, but I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the date. It appears to be correct in most cases, but there are exceptions which I cannot thoroughly identify. “
