    Something recently happened to my google calendars causing them to all disappear from Google. Anyway, that mystery remains.

    I am currently trying to re set up iCal to sync with Google Calendars and things aren't working quite right.

    In iCal, I've done Calendar>Subscribe and entered the URL for that particular Google calendar. This has been completed for the 5 separate Google calendars I have and they show up in the list of subscribed calendars.

    However, if I attempt to create a new event, the only calendar choice I have is for the main GMail calendar, not any of the subscribed "sub calendars".

    In Preferences>Account, If I select Google and then go to the "delegation"tab, there is a message that states "You can't see delegation settings when this account is offline."

    Can anyone offer some advice?

    Thanks.

    "Subscribed" Google calendars are read-only.

    "Delegates" of a Google calendar iCal account can be writable depending on the privileges settings at the Google site.
