I’m showing the address book birthday’s in the calendar app but I hate that every thing I can see ist “xx. birthday of N…“ and not mor because the labels are to narrow. To see who’s birthday it is I need to click on the event.


Is it possible to an other fromat like <name> (<xx>. Birthday)


No, but you can turn off the iCal birthday calendar and download Dates 2 iCal 2 which allows you to sync birthdays (and anniversaries) and customize the text to your preference.
