Seeing two weekends at once?

Can I force iCal to display more than 7 days at once in its Week view? (Say, 9 or 10 days at once?) I'm not finding a definitive answer on the web, just other people wishing for the same thing (or suggestions of non-iCal programs, which I can't use). I'm running Tiger but would also be happy to hear if there are any differences here in Leopard.

I don't believe so... the next step up is to go to month view...

You can't, but iCal is scriptable, so you could write an Applescript to pull out the coming 10 days' appointments and list them.

Especially in the Mac world, I've heard MANY times that something is impossible and then either googled or figured out a hack. I will guess that this is a relatively surface-level problem for which there very likely is a hack to found somewhere out there.

I'm assuming the 7-day max is purely arbitrary (since you can adjust for 6, 5, etc. days to be displayed at once) and there's no structural reason it can't be forced to 8+.

find your iCal preferences file and sort through it, see if there's an xml-type setting for how many days to view at once.

Wild_Eep, thank you -- am I looking in the wrong places? iCal seems to have only five preference files that just have to do with individual functions:

alarmsCache.plist
nodes.plist
sync.plist
syncState.plist
todos-info.plist

That's the list from my user's Library/Application Support/iCal/
(in my broader system Library/Application Support/ , there is no iCal directory)

I also looked inside the package contents of the iCal app itself. Where should I look next, or am I missing something in those places?
