I've got the same question. I have one calendar, which I use for appointments and the like. Now I want to create a separate, clean calendar where I record what I eat every day. I can make a new calendar, but the events from my original calendar always populate the new one. That makes it cluttered, and plus I just want them separate.
I have searched and read a few different instructional pages (including Apple's own), but I can't find the answer. It must be simple?
I hope someone can help,
Richard et al,
You can run different calendars simultaneously, and they appear in the left sidebar of iCal.
Each one is switched on by clicking on it, which adds a tick mark. They can all be activated at once by selecting all of them. From doing this you may see some events overlap. They are different inputs showing together on the one 'calendar page'.
If you create a new one with the + sign it appears it contains the calendars of the other ones, but it does not. Untick any previous calendar and the new one will show as empty, which is what it is.
Select the new one and fill it as you like, and those additions will just pertain to it alone.
