    I searched the forums but didn't find any postings about a small but annoying iCal problem I have. Whenever I enter a new calendar appointment item, the name of that item often reverts to "New Event" even after I've typed the correct name (for instance, "dinner w/ Jill"). It seems to be difficult for iCal to accept the name I choose. I have to re-open the event often and re-type the name, hitting "return" repeatedly to make the correct name "stick"... Anyone else having this problem? Or should I reinstall perhaps? Or is this a "live with it or use another program" kinda thing? Otherwise I'm extremely happy with iCal. Hope that makes sense!

    Many thanks, 512ke

    Thanks, I'll try it.

    It kinda surprised me to find a rather basic glitch when inputting items.

    Probably some error or glitch on my end.

    I also haven't seen it, in person or on Apple's site. In addition to repairing permissions, you might want to try removing (or moving to another folder so you can put them back if need be) /Users/youraccount/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.*. Sometimes bad prefs files cause flaky behavior....
