iCal: Highlight & delete all events or events within a date range #

  1. Type a period (".") into iCal's Search field (In Lion, a double quote is used instead of a period, and in Mountain Lion, neither seems to work).
  2. All events will appear chronologically in the search results list.
  3. Highlight all events with Cmd+A or a date range by clicking the start date, holding the Shift key, and then clicking the end date.
  4. Press the Delete key to delete the highlighted events.
