New calendar or new calendar group in iCal!

I didn't even know it was possible to separate multiple calendars in group before discovering this shortcut. To create a calendar, you simple have to click on the "+" in the lower left corner.

When holding down Shift:

I use that feature all the time. For me, it's to keep all my To-Dos in their own rightful category. Example: To Buy / Work To do / General To Do / House / Events etc etc.

What is really useful about this is that if others are subscribed to loads of calendars from your computer, you can simplify this by putting all the calendars into one group and getting them to subscribe to the group only. That way you can change, add, delete or whatever, any calendars within the group, without your friends having to re-subscribe etc. Sorry, long-winded but hope it makes sense.
