"Unable to Synchronize"
I've started playing with the possibilities of synching OF with iCal, and today I tried to mark a To Do item in iCal as 'completed', and I may have altered some text, just to see what would happen when I next synched.

I got the " Unable to Synchronize" alert and was presented with a split screen of both versions of the To Do action.

I didn;t know what to do at that point, so I tried again and got the same alerts but no split screen.

Then I went back to the iCal To Do item and saw that the 'completed' checkbox was unchecked, so I checked it again and synched - got the same alert, and now the item has vanished from both iCal AND OF!

clearly I'm stumbling in the dark and would welcome some coaching -

especially re how to be able to synch again!

Peter, I'm moving your post into the forum on OmniFocus <--> iCal sync; if you take a look at the "resetting iCal sync" thread in this forum, it'll help you reset everything.

If you're still having trouble with this, contact the [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] and they can help. The portion of Mac OS X that we talk to when syncing with iCal can be kind of cantankerous sometimes.

the message you've referred me to relates to .mac, which I don't use.
I'll contact the ninjas

OmniFocus talks to the same software whether you have .Mac involved or not.
