Here’s a very simple Friday tip for those of you using iCal. I like to use iCal’s notes field extensively—I’ll put in all the information about an upcoming flight or hotel reservation, for instance. However, I’ve found that iCal doesn’t do the best job of wrapping the text I add to the notes field.

So here’s the simple solution…just press Option-Return anywhere you want a line break in the notes field—or press Option-Return twice to insert a blank line. I find that some judiciously-applied line breaks make my notes much more readable. If we could use some simple text styles on our notes, that would help even more—sadly, I don’t have a hint to solve that one. For now, though, line breaks and blank lines help quite a bit.
