To export contacts and projects from Daylite:

  3. Select the items you want to export.
  4. Choose File > Export > Export Visible Columns and Selected Rows to File.
  5. In the sheet that opens, enter a name, specify a location to save the file, and other details as needed. Click Save.

Repeat the same steps to export projects, selecting All Projects instead of the Contacts smart list.

To export the calendar from Daylite in iCal:

To export the calendar to Apple iCal

1. Choose File > Export > Export Calendar to Apple iCal.
