    I don't wish to use iCloud anymore, but it I disable the iCloud account (iCal>Prefs>Accounts) all my entries disappear. How can I keep the entries on my Mac but disable iCloud?

    I had this exact same problem, here's what you do:

    Open iCal
    To to File > Export > Export...
    Save the calendar (and any others you have) on the desktop or somewhere handy
    Go to settings and disable iCloud calendars
    iCal should now be empty
    Double click your exported calendars, and choose to add them to iCal as a new calendar.

    Boom done.

    Excellent - thank you.


    Now I just need to work out how to sync iCal with Google.
