Overview

The Edit menu provides a variety of commands for editing selected items. The available commands will vary depending on the current selection. It also provides commands for undoing or redoing most operations, including the snoozing/dismissal of reminders or deletion of items.

Edit Menu Commands - Selection Independent

Regardless of the current selection, the following commands will always be available on the Edit Menu...

Undo

This command will undo the most recent operation. The exact operation will be included as part of the Undo command's caption (example: Undo Delete Event). After undoing an operation, the next recent operation will be associated with the Undo command, and the operation that was undone will be assigned to the Redo command. There is no limit to the number of operations that can be added to the undo stack and associated with the Undo command. The only time the undo stack will be cleared is when an operation is performed, such as importing events from an iCalendar file, that is too complex to be undone. The following are examples of operations that can be undone:

  • Creating or deleting an item (calendar, event, category, etc.)
  • Dismissing a reminder
  • Snoozing a reminder
  • Changing an item appearance (calendar, category, etc.)
  • Rescheduling an event
  • Editing an event or contact
  • Creating a new item (calendar, event, contact, category, etc.)
  • Categorizing or prioritizing an event
  • Marking an event as completed

Redo

This command will redo the previous undone operation.

  • If multiple operations were undone, the Redo command will redo each operation in the opposite order it was undone.
  • When a new operation is performed, the Redo command will become disabled until an operation is undone.
  • The list of operations that can be redone is the same as the ones that can be undone, and the Redo command's caption will include the operation description (example: Redo Delete Event).

Search

This command will cause the Search window to be displayed, where you can search for events containing specified text. The first found event will be selected in the Calendar View. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+F.

Find Next

This command will search for the next occurrence of an event containing previously specified search text. The previous search direction (up or down) will be used. The keyboard shortcut for finding the next event is F3.

Rename Calendar
