    Does anyone else's iCal Event Edit balloon look like this:

    Notice, that the "to" "from" edit lines look a bit funny. I originally thought well, I guess the first "0923" would represent time--however very poorly. But no, when I edit the first "0923" or the second "09 23" the date of the event is what changes. I can't edit an event's time from this screen at all. The only way for me to edit an events time is to drag it up or down via the "day" screen. I've been digging through preferences and help files looking for an explanation with no luck. I looked up an image of what the edit balloon is supposed to look like and I noticed something must be messed up with my configuration or something. It should look like this...

    Or am I wrong? Maybe I'm overlooking something thats currently slapping me in the face.

    Help. Please.

    That looks a bit strange. Might want to try trashing the iCal preference file.

    I just checked mine, and have this -

    Your date format may have something to do with it.

    i trashed it then ran it again to see what would happen and now luck... it just created a new one. I am not entirely sure i trashed the right file "com.apple.iCal.plist" is that the right one?

    Yes, you trash it so that it is forced to create a new one next time iCal launches. If the problem was caused by that corrupted plist file, then forcing iCal to create a new one should solve the problem.

    yeah, still no luck. This is frustrating. I might just backup my stuff and reinstall leopard...
