    That info drawer is HUGE!

    I used to have my iCal set to take up the whole screen so I could see everything easily including my to-do items.

    Now, I have to hide my to-dos and move the entire window to one side of the screen to view my calendar and still leave room for the info drawer, which takes up about 1/4 of the screen. :mad:

    Anyone else not pleased with this feature?

    I plan on sending feedback to Apple asking for a preference option to view the info in a window or the drawer.

    I'm suprised you can't just resize it like you can with the mailboxes drawer in Mail.

    You can only resize that drawer so much before it closes or gets bigger than necessary.

    With the iCal drawer, it has to be that size or you can't see the info. :rolleyes:

    I like that everything is in one place instead of having to switch back and forth to get to different info panels, but my cal is suddenly very cramped. Not cool.

    Yeah, I agree with you. It is a bit annoying.
    It just seems so much more simpler to just have the info section to appear and disappear just like the 'to do' list. So whenever the info section is being used, the main screen shrinks a little and when you're finished, it becomes full screen again. That seems a lot more logical.
    I'd certainly prefer that.

    Voice your opinion

    Let Apple know. Go to the iCal menu and select "Provide iCal Feedback". (Make sure you're connected to the internet first.)

    Not everyone has two inches of screen to spare! :)

    Which category did you choose? Enhancement?
