Got in touch with Apple and here's the outcome.
The 'OM MY MAC' calendar is independent of the MobileMe calendar in ical and the MobileMe syncs with the online calendar.
There is no way of syncing the 'OM MY MAC' calendar with MobileMe calendar in ical so if I enter an event in the 'OM MY MAC' calendar I have to recreate/copy this to the MobileMe calendar.
Previous to one of the recent updates, I entered one event in ical and this synced online.
Hey Steve, thanks for posting your questions and then answering them, too! I found about it the same way, for the most part. I'm not really liking this new version of doing things. I understand it, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Before the "new" method, all I did was enter an event in my ical, and it would show up online, and on my touch. Now, I have to first "select" @mobileme, and then start a new event.
If there was a way to have ical launch with @mobileme the default calendar, than this would solve my situation. I can't figure out what the point of having "On My Mac" calendars is. I do know that you can publish "On My Mac" calendars online, but I don't use that. I just want my calendars to be synced, my computer, my touch, and @mobileme. Now I just have to make an extra step.......
OK, just found a work around. If you close the triangles to "On My Mac", and "Mobileme", when iCal is launched, firstname.lastname@example.org becomes highlighted and is ready for input.
Still don't like this new setup though
no probs. Not liking it either - I just want to add an event and have this synced, and not have to think whether I put this in the right calendar for MobileMe.
Thanks for the tip though. This will solve my problem also, and I'll use this only and leave the 'ON MY MAC' calendars alone.
