10.5: Quick edit of iCal event information System 10.5
If you Option-double click an event in your iCal calendar, it highlights the event's title immediately and lets you edit it, without bringing up the pop-up window. Not necessarily faster, but less intrusive.

10.5: Quick edit of iCal event information
Authored by: Faust on Dec 03, '07 08:24:22AM

Thanks a lot!
I already began to hate leopard for having me clicking all the time. I prefer the way Tiger's iCal used to manage keyboard commands.
Is there a way to easily alter the time, date and other issues by shortcuts?

Unfortunately, not that anyone has seen. I don't know how best to describe it, but Tiger just seemed to be much more keyboard-accessible, as you've indicated.

In Leopard edit actions are now (seeming BEST case): "Click", "Cmd-E" (to enter edit mode), and "Tab, Tab, Tab..." to the field you want to change.

Then, "Esc", "Cmd-E" again to leave edit mode but leave the window active, or "Cmd-I" to dismiss the pop-up info display entirely.

Now, anyone got a way to select and open an event for editing with just the keyboard or mouse, but not both?

Use the Tab key to go to the event (it will visit every event in the view you are currently in; use Command-Right or Command-Left to switch current day/week/month), then Command-E to edit it. Not exactly efficient especially if you're in month view and have a lot of events, but it works.
