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.

NoteBook 2.1 Adds Syncing, Cornell Note-Taking System -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 2.1, a notable (heh!) upgrade to their information organizing tool (see "The Well Worn NoteBook" and "The Shiny New NoteBook" for my reviews of earlier versions). For new users, NoteBook 2.1 now includes the Starting Point system that provides pre-built templates for a variety of common usage scenarios. It also adds support for the Cornell Note-Taking System, a method of taking notes that divides the page into three areas for taking, analyzing, summarizing, and reviewing notes. Other enhancements include support for syncing to-do items with Microsoft Entourage, the capability to make to-dos synced to iCal be calendar appointments or regular to-do items, support for the LinkBack content linking technology promulgated by Nisus Software, improved uploading of HTML-exported notebooks to .Mac, support for SFTP and FTP uploading of HTML-exported notebooks, and creation of fully linked PDFs when exporting to PDF.
