Hello iCalers,


I recently made the switch to Mountain Lion from Snow Leopard. I was quite a fan of iCal in Snow Leopard—it was one of the reasons I downgraded to Snow Leopard from Lion—but since I have a newer computer that doesn't allow Snow Leopard, and I've got Mountain Lion set up pretty well for me, I'm sticking with Mountain Lion.


My standard view for things in iCal is "Weekly." In Mountain Lion's incantation, I don't see the red marker that scrolls downwards, the one that corresponded to the current time. I'm wondering: was this feature dropped in Lion/Mountain Lion, or is mine buggy, or is it an out-of-the-way preference somewhere? I peeked in some .plists and files—I laugh that Apple still calls it "iCal" at the programming end—but I couldn't see any obvious mention of that time-of-day marker.


Any ideas?


I liked it a lot—enough to open a discussion about it!

iCal (aka "Calendar"), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Hi Scott,


    The red time marker is there on my calendar on OSX 10.8.2.


    You could try making a new user account on the computer and opening the there. Can you see it on a fresh user account?


    Best wishes

    John M
