I'm having a problem with iCal where once I create an event, after I quit and reopen iCal, the event is gone. I've tried this with event under calendars that are published to icalx.com and ones that are just local, and the same thing happens. I tried trashing the prefs, and still nothing. All of the events that are in the iCal are ok, it is just affecting new ones. I had iCalFix installed, so I tried removing that.

I'm running a iMac G5, with Tiger and the latest updates.

Help, my life is falling apart. Well, I'm having trouble keeping track of things anyway. :)

** Bump **

Can anyone offer any assistance? Can I re-install iCal? Would that help? I've never had to do anything like this on a Mac.

Thanks.

Very odd. You might try tossing the iCal preferences (back things up first, this may cause a loss of all previously-entered events.

Alternatively, try creating a new account and see if the behaviour appears there. If it doesn't, that's a sure sign there's some conflict in your own account.

I fixed it

I was subscribed to Birthdays from my address book. Deleted this and it started working fine. I read that this stems from an issue with the Address Book and not iCal. Now fixing the address book is a whole 'nother story

I can see how some might benefit from multiple calendars, but this is just confusing to me.

I have mine start immediately, so I know what's expected of me that day. Having to move between calendars would be like having 2 or more on a wall, but one behind the other. ;)
