Thank you Winston. Since MOST of my calendar is on iCloud, but some is on my computer (cause I started trying to fix it before I realized it was hopeless), can I integrate these two calendars again? Perhaps import the iCloud info into my computer calendar.
Also, I'm a bit shocked that Apple took it upon themselves to delete vaste amounts of data from computer without asking me, or even telling me. Years and years worth of important calendar data.. I often work without an internet connection, so at those times, I assume my iCloud is not available to me. I just want it all back on my computer, it's mine and I don't want anything to delete it agian.
The instructions and I detailed above, will allow you to move calendars that are designated as "iCloud" calendars to be "on my mac "calendars.
Apple didn't delete any of your data, if any data has been deleted it will be because of the options you chose during the migration to iCloud. Admittedly a number of people have done this, and perhaps the migration process should have been clearer than what it is.
How do I transfer the calendars that are in my icloud account to my imac? The directions offered here by Winston Churchill appear to be exactly opposite of what I need to do.
I see my calendars in icloud and do not need to change a thing with them. I simply want to be able to see them as they appear in icloud, on my imac. Creating a new calendar in ical does not allow me to export the calendar from icloud. As well "control clicking does not allow me to copy a calendar and then save it into the new calendar.
Thanks for any help you may offer!
