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

Rogue Amoeba has released Intermission 1.0.3, adding full support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks to the audio utility that enables you to pause and rewind up to 3 hours of live audio on your Mac. (If you’re not familiar with it, check out why Josh Centers is a fan in “FunBITS: Intermission Lets You Browse Your Mac’s Audio History,” 11 October 2013.) The update also resolves an issue where Bluetooth audio devices could cause static, improves compatibility with the Soundflower audio extension, and makes several unspecified small fixes. ($15 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.9 MB, release notes)
