  1. Make sure the 'Export to iCal...' dialog is visible.
  2. Select the 'Scheduling' tab.

    See Schedule Settings section for details on the various settings.

    NOTE: If you have previously done an export and want to make sure your recurrence settings take effect on those existing entries, select the 'Update all existing entries' radio button in the 'Advanced' tab.
