Mac Calendar: filtering events by specific calendar

Recently I needed to see a list of all the events within a specific calendar, in Calendar. This is because I am famous and popular, and have to check all my engagements to be sure I'm not booked spinning in different clubs on the same night.

Okay, fine. It's a calendar of my domain renewal dates. Anyway, I needed to see a list of everything in there. And despite that seeming like a basic feature of a calendar, it's not a basic feature of Calendar.

But there is a way to do it. All you need is the search bar and four quotation marks.

How to quote-filter-quote

First, select only the calendar(s) that you want to work with.

Then, in the search bar, type two double-quotation marks with no space between them.

You will see a list of every event within the calendars you've selected.

Working with your list

Once you have your list displayed, you can click on individual events to edit or delete them. The list will remain in place until you change the search.

So there you have it. A pretty handy Calendar hack. And you can "" me on that.
