More hours displayed per day in iCal to remove scroll bars
Authored by: lee1 on Oct 22, '03 11:03:09AM

In my iCal (v. 1.0.2) I can set any number of hours to display up to 24.

More hours displayed per day in iCal to remove scroll bars

Ditto for the latest (1.5.1). In fact, I think this has been a basic preference item from the very beginning.

More hours displayed per day in iCal to remove scroll bars

What I see in 1.5.1 is this: the pulldown menu for number of hours displayed is limited to only showing the number of hours between the start and end of the day. So if I start at midnight and end at midnight, I can indeed show all 24 hours.

But what you need to avoid the scrollbars with all-day events, is 1 or 2 hours more than the number of hours in the day, to provide the extra room. I can't believe that the all-day events don't get their own space that's separate from the hourly display (with a thumb so I can make it larger).

I've reported this to Apple as a bug before. I have a lot of all-day events (living abroad means two sets of holidays to keep track of...), so this bug makes iCal very annoying for me.

They do, at least in my universe. Make a new event, check the "All-day event" box in the info window, and the event gets stowed in a special pane above the hourly display. This pane grows and shrinks as needed. No scrolling necessary.
