You've all experienced this, but it's still going to need a couple images to clarify. Here's me, trying to add a new item to iCal: Should I take mom to the movie next week? (It's her birthday!) Now here's what the calendar looks like once entered: So, why has "Mom" been cut off? There is an inelegant solution, which is to hit space a mad number of times after the word "with" until, for whatever reason, all the text shows up. But generally, what's the reason for the cut-off? This is at least tolerable: I mean, I know whose name goes in the missing space. But It REALLY drives me nuts when the missing text is an address or something more important.
