10.7: Change time of multiple iCal events Apps
In iCal 5 you can now move multiple events forward or back in the calendar at once.

Multi-select the events to move by Shift+Clicking each event. Then, while holding down both the Control and Option keys, press the arrow keys to move the selected events.

In day or week view up/down keys move the events forward/back by 15 minutes, left/right keys move forward back by a day. In month view up/down move the events forward/back by a week, left/right still move them forward and back by a day. There seems to be no effect in year view.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. I don't think I would have guessed to look for that first part.]

I've tested this with iCal 4 (Snow Leopard 10.6.8) and it seems that all of these tips work exactly as stated for the 5-version.

Great tip. Many thanks.

Ian

Darn, not working for me in 10.6.8 & iCal 4. I tried every combination of modifier keys I could think of.

Looks like it'd be very useful to me. This hint's about some of my favorite things: iCal, and keyboard shortcuts. Thanks for the hint!

For me it only works by holding command + control, not option, to move the selected events with the arrows. This is iCal 5.0

Still works in Mavericks, although as jaykern215 pointed out you have to use the option and command (not control) keys.
