I have recently upgraded to Mavericks, 10.9.1. I am trying to share my diary with my wife, we both use the OS X Calendar and I decided to sync using iCloud.
I also have calendars in Calendar synced through Google.
I went into
System Preferences > iCloud and ticked
Calendars. It told me it would merge all my calendars data in Calendars on My Mac to the Calendars in iCloud which is what I wanted.
I said OK, it then whirred away for about three minutes and then all my calendars on My Mac disappeared and were replaced by iCloud calendars, a bit more whirring and then I saw an error saying it couldn't access iCloud at this time, try again now or try later, I tried now several times and later as well all to no avail.
Getting desperate I went into
System Preferences > iCloud and un-ticked
Calendars. It told me all Calendar data would be deleted on my mac which I was not concerned about as I was well backed up.
All iCloud Calendars disappeared from the side pane leaving only the Google calendars left.
This is my challenge: I can't create a Calendar on My Mac. When I go to
File > New Calendar, there is no option to create on on My Mac which was there before, in fact no option to create anything.
I have tried the usual computer reboot and logging out of iCloud to no avail.
I have logged onto iCloud and some of my Calendars are there but at this point I would be happy just to be able to get back to square one with my Calendars re-created on My Mac.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
