MagiCal Feature Request

Link with iCal

  • Status: Already Implemented in version 1.1a1


A really great feature would be to link with iCal and open that date in iCal when you double click on a date in the tear off calendar of MagiCal.

That's already the case (except that you only have to single-click the date)

When I click on a calendar date, iCal opens up to a daily notes page, BUT iCAL OPENS TO THE WRONG DATE! If I click on November 8, for example, in MagiCal, it links to the daily notes page in iCal for November 9. This makes your program unusable for me. Is this a bug in your MagiCal program, or do I have some setting on my computer messed up? I am using Mac OSX 10.3.9 on an iBook/800MHz, with the version of iCal that comes with the Mac OSX installer. Please email me back with any info or suggestions. Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,

I cannot reproduce this issue on my test machine - clicking November 8 works as expected.

Please send me copy of your Library/Preferences/com.charcoaldesign.shades.plist file (reply to the notification email) and I'll test if it's something to do with your MagiCal settings.

One other thing. What time of day was it when you tried it? Does it work at some times and not others?

It would be great if a click on a week number, open iCal in Week modeâ¦

not just a link, but to have a sync with iCal so it does something like shades the day so you actually know when there is an event. that would get me to use it a lot more because i use my computer every day but i never use iCal.

When I click to open iCal, it always goes to the day view on monitor #1. I normally keep iCal in month view on monitor #2. Is there a way I can have it just go to iCal and not change where and how it is displayed?

I was able to reproduce the wrong date problem. I originally installed the Universal app on my G5, because that's what had for download (so I assumed it was the only version). It worked fine. I just replaced it with the PPC version and now when I click on April 4, iCal opens to April 5. I have NOT restarted since installing the new version, but I thought I would post my findings anyway.
