Hi Matthias,

Thanks for this, sorry you are having this problem with the calendar picker. Which calendar servers are you linking to (MobileMe, Google etc.)?

Dates to iCal is used for settings only. It updates iCal on quitting and a background process should update iCal when you change Address Book. You don't need to keep the application open once you have made the settings.

Hi John,

I'm using MobileMe.

I know that Dates to iCal is working in the background. And it worked fine with Snow Leopard (this is why I didn't remember to check for updates before updating to Lion, I just forgot that it was there). But trying by adding a birthday to a contact showed, that it doesn't work since Lion.

What can I do? Uninstall (which Library entries should I delete?) and reinstall?

Hi Matthias,

Can you create a local calendar in iCal? Then open Dates to iCal, try to open the calendar picker and select that calendar.

Created a local calendar. Calendar picker still doesn't show any calendars. If I double-click on where the new calendar should be in the calendar picker, it is selected. It's like blind flying.

Synced after closing, but not continuously.

I deleted the old calendar and created a new one after updating to 2.2.5

Mattias, can you do the following:
1. Open Dates to iCal.
2. Uncheck the "Sync" checkbox.
3. Quit Dates to iCal and wait while all the calendar entries are removed.
4. Open Dates to iCal and re-check thr "Sync" checkbox.
5. Quit Dates to iCal and wait while all the calendar entries are re-added.

This will re-install all elements of Dates to iCal. After a few minutes try adding a test person in Address Book with a date.

Let me know how this goes.
