Set identical window sizes for iCal views Apps
If you don't like different window sizes in the day, week and month view (BTW where is the year view?), follow these steps:
  1. Start iCal.app and set the window size of the day view to your favorite size.
  2. Quit iCal.app.
  3. Double click on ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist and the Property List Editor.app opens (the Developer tool must be installed). But of course, you can use any text editor to do this (BBEdit, TextEdit, vi, pico, etc.).
  4. Now copy the value of the property "1-day view window size" to the values of the properties "7-day view window size" and "monthly view window size".
  5. Save and quit the Property List Editor.app.
  6. Start iCAl.app et violĂ : equal window sizes for each view.
You may wish to create a backup copy of your preferences file after editing to make it easy to recreate the identically sized windows in the future.

If you have a particular aversion to editing text files you can always take the GUI home.

Set the size of (say) day view. Push the window to the top left of your screen so that it's corner is in the corner of your screen. Line up the bottom right hand corner with the top left corner of another application's window. Quit. Open again, go to week view, then adjust window size using "top left of screen and top left of the other window". Quit again. Do it for month view. Quit again. Phew, done.

OK, OK, the plist way is better!

Cheers,
Paul

Sorry for the duplication: there's something about these forums that just turns me into a complete moron any time I get near. (I can hear it now: "stay away, stay away"!!)

Nothing and no one to blame this time except my command-arrow keyboard commands. Urrk.
