Creating iCal Calendars in Mac OS X Lion

iCal is a memory-enhancing tool found in Mac OS X Lion. iCal in Max OS X Lion offers multiple color-coded calendars, several types of reminder alerts, repeating event scheduling, and more.

The calendars shown here appear in two sections — On My Mac and MobileMe. If you’re not a MobileMe subscriber, calendars that you create would appear in the On My Mac section instead.

To create a new calendar in iCal, follow these steps:

  1. Choose File→New Calendar or press Command+Option+N.

    A new calendar named Untitled is created and added to the calendar list.

  2. To give your calendar a name, select Untitled, and type a new name.

  3. (Optional) To color-code the entries for this calendar, first select the calendar (by clicking it); choose Edit→Get Info or press Command+I; and then select a color by clicking and holding the color swatch.

    While you’re in the Info sheet, you can also add a description of your calendar.

    'Other. . .' is the handy choice because it lets you select thousands of colors other than the seven colors available by default.

    Now any item you create while this calendar is selected (in the list that pops up from the Calendars button) appears on the selected calendar in the color you selected.
