Hi,
I always find it hard when looking at the large iCal to see the current day. Is there a way to change the colour or the brightness of the current day colour fill? Thanks a lot for the help!

it's always been hard for me to see too - I have countless times been accidentally in one day and typed an apt in the wrong day b/c I couldn't quite see and thought I was right. After a few mishaps...I make a point of clicking the 'today' function and then counting the clicks from there.

As an aside: wish there were more colours for iCal cals... I'm reusing a few and it's a bit confusing.

You can choose any color you like for a calendar. Just use the color wheel and pick amongst the millions!

I think they were referring to the calendar color, as in the color of appointments for a particular calendar. Not the day highlight color, or the calendar background.

Do you choose the Calendar itself (from the top left Calendars window), and not any of the calendar items...?

Then it should be easy to choose the colour from the Calendar's info window:

Edit: Way to slow... shouldn't have bothered with censoring private data... ;)

I know you were being playful sweener - however I was also mindful I had inadvertently hijacked the thread somehow.

Still interested in knowing if this pale blue hue is adjustable myself - it's honesty barely there from any angle most of the time.
