Modify iCal events' time/date fields via the mouse Apps
After reading dashard's hint about adjusting visible hours in iCal via the scroll wheel, I did some iCal experimenting of my own. I don't know if either of these are documented.

I found that if you activate (click into) a time or date entry field within the iCal info panel, and then hover over one of the individual date or time fields, you can change that number using the scroll wheel. You don't even need a modifier key. This will work in Day, Week or Month views.

You can also use the + or - keys (with no modifier keys) to increment (+ key) or decrement (- key) a number while clicked into a date or time entry field in the iCal info panel.

Amazing the things you learn or are inspired to discover via the Mac OS X Hints site!

I tried it, too, after the hint the other day, but figured this was old news ;)

You can also use the cursor arrow keys.

Just to mention, stuff like this works within the Gimp and some other Applications for every numerical input-field.
