Edit iCal Event Titles Directly

In the Leopard version of iCal, double-clicking an event shows a summary of the event, and to edit the name (or anything else), you must click the Edit button in the summary pop-up. To bypass the summary and edit pop-ups entirely, Option-double-click the event name. That selects the text for editing, and you can make any changes you want. Click outside the event to save your changes.

 
 

Apple Configurator 1.4

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Configurator 1.4, the essential tool for schools and businesses to manage and deploy software to multiple iOS devices. The update supports the latest features (and restrictions) of the just-released iOS 7, including AirDrop. It enables configuration of the Web content filter, AirPlay mirroring destinations and passwords, AirPrint printers, the Limit Ad Tracking setting, font installation, and Managed Open In, and it allows connecting supervised devices to any Mac and control over whether Control Center and Notification Center display on the Lock screen. Apple Configurator 1.4 also brings an improved user interface for installing a single profile on unsupervised devices, plus the capability to complete the Apple TV setup assistant and enroll it into Mobile Device Management (MDM) without having to use the remote. (Free, 23.2 MB)
