In addition to the bug listed in the last post, I was also having trouble with the built in search field. I was searching for events that I knew existed, but iCal was giving me no results. Fortunately, this bug is fixable.
I came across an Apple support article entitled “iCal: Unable to find events created prior to 10.4.2 update“. It outlines how to force iCal to re-index all events in your calendar. It’s a simple procedure, and it fixed the problem.
- From the iCal File menu, choose Backup Database.
- Quit iCal.
- Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources.
- Open each folder in the Sources folder and remove the file named “Index.”
- Open iCal; it will re-index your events.
