    Morning.

    I half expect this to be a No but...

    I am trying to check entries from iCal to a spread sheet in Open office,
    I only have a 15inch screen (I know I'll get there!), so there is not enough room to fit both windows on the screen and see all the info. (iCal will only shrink to about 2/3rds with on my screen.)

    So. Can I Lock / Keep iCal at the front some how? So I can work on the spreadsheet behind?

    It would be quite handy for other applications at times as well.

    Cheers

    I use afloat for just this purpose. I find it works really well.

    Smashing App.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work with iCal or Open office.. Booo!

    However I can load my calendars in safari instead as a workaround.

    Shame its not friendly with finder and others as that would really be handy, or is it in 10.6? (im 10.5.8 still)

    Cheers for the link though, finding it useful.
