I have used iCal for years, I recently upgraded from 10.6 to 10.8 and now I can't seem to add a calendar to my Calendar without going to iCloud. Right now I don't want to spend the time learning how to integrate existing calendars into iCloud. Please help

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time Machine

    Open Calendar, select Preferences from Calendar menu, click on Accounts icon in the toolbar. Uncheck the box for Enable this account. Click on the box Edit Account, select the iCloud account, then uncheck the boxes for all the iCloud items you don't want to sync automatically.

    I thought you wanted your Calendar to be independent of iCloud. Just create a new calendar using the Calendar button.


    If you want what you had back, then turn everything back on and spend time learning to use iCloud and Calendar. You don't need to integrate anything.


    To simply start a new calendar without modifying settings just select New Calendar from Calendar's File menu.

    If you want to be cut off from iCloud, then you need to turn off iCloud. You can't have it both ways.

    If I Sign Out all my Calendar data is erased. It's restored by Sign In, so, this does not help me.

    Archive before you sign out, put it back after you sign out,


    I can switch events to different calendars, if those calendars were established before I upgraded from 10.6.8 to 10.8. But when I attempt to switch an event from an old calendar to a calendar established aftger the upgrade I get a refusal stating that tthis is not allowed. anyway around this?

    Sign out.


    Do you not choose to backup?
