Create .ics files from iCal via drag-and-drop
Authored by: osxpounder on May 21, '09 12:19:05PM

I'm glad for the hint, even though I knew this already. It wasn't obvious to me, and I probably learned it via a similar hint at this website.

Oddly, if I drag an iCal event from the calendar to the Mail icon, in the Dock, it doesn't attach an .ics file. Instead, I get a new Mail message with the text of that event in the message body.

However, if I start a new Mail message first, I can drag an event to the body of the message, and it becomes an attached .ics file.

The reason I already knew today's hint was because I wanted to attach more than one iCal .ics file to an email. I learned I could drag events to a folder, one at a time, then drag them to a new Mail message's body.
