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.

Workgroup Server 95

Send Article to a Friend

Workgroup Server 95 owners have a little longer to obtain a performance-enhancing software upgrade. Last January, Apple introduced AppleShare Pro server software version 1.1 and A/UX 3.1. The new software can provide up to 40 percent better performance when used with high performance hard disks. Those who purchased an AWS 95 before 01-Dec-93 may order an upgrade for both programs for $199; owners of AWS 95 systems who purchased them on or after 01-Dec-93 but who have earlier versions of the software are entitled to a free upgrade. The upgrade offer has been extended until 02-Jan-95. [MHA]
