Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has updated ChronoSync to version 4.41, a maintenance release with a number of stability enhancements and bug fixes that follows the previous 4.4.0 version that introduced the company’s free InterConneX file management and file sharing app for the iPad. ChronoSync 4.4.1 addresses a problem with out-of-control CPU resource usage when ChronoSync or ChronoSyncBackgrounder were idle, enhances compatibility with InterConneX and support for AppleScript, fixes bugs related to changing targets for remote connection profiles, enhances error reporting to better explain what’s going on behind the scenes, and fixes potential crashes relating to the closing of a sync document and when losing and/or regaining connection with a target. ($40 new, free update, 27.1 MB, release notes)

The addition of InterConnex into the CS/CA mix is really valuable for any multidevice office or home. Seamless, easy access to your home folder, on the same network on all devices, and via Back to My Mac on other Macs.
