Use the following shortcuts to get the most out of your calendar...
Double-click any blank space in the calendar to begin creating a new event.
Or drag the plus button from the lower right to any cell in order to start a new event.
Double-clicking on the clear space on any day also brings up an option to jump to that day on the Day tab.
Click on the little arrow to the left of the date to hide the calendar's sidebar and make more room for the calendar itself.
Hold down option/control while dragging an event to duplicate it.
Hold down the shift key to select several events and drag them all at once.
Oh horizon view, shift-clicking on the arrows on either side of "today" will move the calendar one day in either direction instead of one-page in either direction.
