    Does anyone know how to copy an event on the calendar and paste it to a different day?

    Thanks Alan

    But you can edit it and spin the dial to a new day.

    Or make it repeat if the span isn't too wide and delete the ones you don't want.

    I've always hated that we canr copy events. Seems really dumb to me.

    Dumb plus

    Just got my iPad yesterday. Finally!

    I have a ton of events that repeat from 2 to 7 days. Not being able to repeat these entries is seriously dumb.

    I agree, this is really annoying. I work irregular shifts and would like to be able to quickly drop them into my iPad calendar so I can plan my month without being dependent on paper diaries and calendars. You can copy-and-paste like this in Outlook. In the new iOS5 calendar you can move events within the month view by dragging them, but not copy them.

    The repeat function only allows you to duplicate regular events, it does not allow you to copy irregular events to selected days across the month.

    You could look at some alternative apps like SmartPad and Pocket Informant, I have both and they are highly configurable with good support from the devs.

    Thanks. I'll look into those. The lack of this basic function on apple's own app is still annoying, however.

    Free apps are always likely to be less powerful than paid apps.......I've not come across your issue before so I'm guessing that it isn't a much requested feature however, you can leave comments here http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html and maybe Apple will consider adding it as an enhancement.

    The updated calendar now has better interaction capabilities with events, you can drag them to other dates, increase/decrease the time by dragging etc, very nice additions!

    I was trying to work out the same thing. If you go into the monthly view mode of the calender, you can drag and paste into the day you want to repeat that event, so saves u have to type it all over again each time :)

    Cocosabi, could you you describe exactly how you are doing that? I can drag an event from one day to another (cut and paste) in monthly or weekly view but I cannot copy and paste. If I drag an event it is removed from the day I was dragging it from.

    For those who have complex requirements for managing tasks and events and need that functionality on multiple devices (e.g. laptop/desktop/phone/iPad), I'd also recommend "RememberTheMilk." The "Pro" version runs $25 per year but is an extremely powerful task/event manager and integrates very well with the iPad calendar app. Explore its features on the web and take a look at the iPad app available in the App Store.

    Your only hope is a Mac and iCloud.
    Use the Mac for most of your calendar editing if you do more than simple entries
