iCal 4.0.4. Is there any way to use different colors for different events? Or for that matter, have more than two groups? I used Entourage for years and it has a calendar with plenty of options for using a variety of colors. For example, I had all my medical appointments in orange; work related activities in red; friend and family events in green, etc.

All I have been able to figure out with iCal is to have a Home and a Work group, one is blue the other green.

I tried creating a third "new calendar group" but I cannot do anything with it. It is greyed out when I select an event and try to make it belong to that new group. Trying Get Info or Control Click does not give me the color option that I get with the other two groups.

Can anyone help me with this? I have been and continue to be incredibly frustrated with iCal. Thanks
