Event Maker is an app that creates an iCal event or to do from a selected email in Mail.app.
There are no release notes or instructions provided by the developer.
I got this to work by putting it in my Mail scripts folder (~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Mail), highlighting an email and running it from the Script menu.
It pops up a dialog allowing you to select either an event or a to do:
The subject and contents of the message are copied over into the Title and Notes fields, but the rest you need to fill in yourself.
After the event is created, the app offers you a number of options:
The developer points out that this is “an early release that is missing many features”. He is looking for some user feedback and for an icon for the app. You can contact him by email.
Event Maker is donation-ware and is available from the developer’s web site .
