Update some iCal event info without editing
Authored by: jimk on Nov 28, '08 08:02:47PM

This "Feature" in 10.5 makes is so tedious to edit 'events' drives me buggy - why would anybody make it harder to edit an event in a new version than it was in the old?

Editing a 'note' one must dbl-click the event, click 'edit', click 'note' then re-click an insertion point. AAAARGH! I find this is a convenient place to keep a daily log of some numbers (maybe there's a more appropriate tool for this?), but this terribly clumsy editing tool makes it quite painful.

Floating 'events.' Earlier versions of Palm's calendar (or 'todo'?) had floating events that would float to the current day - AWFULLY NICE!

The main problem (to me) is that it WAS "fixed" in Tiger's iCal. Then they crippled iCal's editiing abilities and removed the super-convenient event icons (recurring, has-notes, etc.) and Leopard iCal was born.

Hope they bring the icons back as well as better editing...

If you select an event in iCal and press ENTER you can edit the event title immediately.
