    I can drag an event from one day to another which is equivalent to cut/paste. In Outlook one hold the control key and it changes the operation to copy/paste. Does an means exist on the iPad to do the same thing?

    Thanks

    PS How does one do caps lock on the iPad?

    No drag and drop.

    You'll have to tap on the event and edit it. There you can change the date, time, range, whatever. You can also change what calendar it appears in, if you have more than one calendar.

    Isn't the edit date change the same as the drag & drop move? I do not see an easy way to copy/paste other than to create a new event...


    No caps lock?


    We gotta stop spending so much time using the iPad ;)

    Ok, now I'm confused.

    What app are you dragging and dropping in? As far as I can tell the Calendar app doesn't allow you do that, let alone copy&paste events.

    :eek: I misspoke ... I must have been dreaming, but you are correct, nothing I do allows copy/paste only editing. I drag & drop so much in Outlook ... :mad:.

    I have been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out why the iPad does not like the DST event. Best I can tell is that the iPad does not like events of the nature "second Sunday in May." Unless I am dreaming again, it lists those events as Custom, but processes them as Annual. I tried to create such an event, but the Repeat selection does not have a "second Sunday in May option." Further, when iTunes does a sync, it changes those events to 11 hours from 1 day.

    Thank you for your help.

    Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an industry standard. Google, Apple, Exchange (Outlook), and every othe calendar service seems to have agreed on the most basic setting, but decided on their own how and what to do beyond that. Apple isn't even %100 compatible begween it's own iCal program in OS X and MobileMe and the iPad's features.

    I also want to be able to cut an event in my iPad.

    I create events when I'm away from my computer. Sometimes they are 3 day events, and copying would be nice. Sometimes I need to cancel an event.

    I have found Calendar Tools to be very useful for managing calendar events.

    I just bought Calendar Tools because of this thread. I'm thinking I made a mistake (and while it's silly to call $5.99 expensive, for an app it is). I don't see what it is giving me except a list of my calendar items.

    I don't see how to copy an event.
