I have several separate named calendars in my account and would like to merge them into a single new calendar. Does anyone know how to do this? I have several devices and synch the iCals via iCloud.

    Use export and import for this task. Every import appends the events to your new calendar.

    1. Select a calendar. From the File menu choose 'Export...' then 'Export...'; from the sub-menu. This will create an .ics file at the location chosen in the Export dialog.
    2. Repeat with other calendars you wish to merge.
    3. Either create a new calendar or select an existing one to import the other calendars into.
    4. From the File menu choose 'Import...' then 'Import...' from the sub-menu. A navigation pane will open: navigate to and choose one of your exported .ics files.
    5. iCal will ask you where to import this to. Click the drop-down menu and select the of calendar of your choice. Import.
    6. Repeat for the other exported files.

     

    Note that once merged in this way there is no way of un-merging them other than entry by entry.
