In March 2014 & March 2017 We did redesigns of our calendar site and calendar menus. This video was produced in 2012. While things may look a little different the procedures are still the same once you you click on a Calendar Page.
2. Is there a way I can make the calendar bigger on the page?
Yes you can it bigger or smaller to fit!
We build our calendars to print as big as possible across as many platforms as possible. But different browsers display differently. If needed you can increase any calendar page, even more, by doing one or both of the following.
1 - Adjust the Left and right side margins on your print setup. Our calendars will print at 100% of your settings. This, allows you to move the side margins to whatever position you want. The calendar page will always be 100% to what you set.
2 - To move the calendar to the bottom of the page increase Scale Option by moving it up past 100% in your Preview Window or Print Preview.
Chrome does a great job in allowing the user to incrementally increase the size of a calendar on the page.
Here is how to completely fill the page in Chrome :
In Internet Explorer 11 you may set the margins wider and set the Scale Percent to fill the page.
Note: Of course to make the calendar page smaller simply reduce the margins and decrease the scaling using the methods described above.
3. Why is there all that typing at the top and bottom of the calendar?
That is created by your print setup. They are called the Header and the Footer and may be eliminated by simply clearing those fields in your printer's setup box. Check your printer's documentation for the details.
4.The bottom part of the calendar prints on page 2! What's up with that?
Chances are you are trying to print a portrait calendar in landscape mode.
If you are trying to print a landscape calendar:
Other variables are your screen setup and print setup etc. Usually as long as these are close to default settings you should not have a problem. You can scale the size of the calendar page in your browser's print setup. See question 2 for details.
If one or more of the month pages print over to another page, and you have followed the print in Landscape or Portrait instructions please write us using our Feedback Form. Be sure and tell us which calendar (Name), year and month is involved.
1- Look for an open browser window that may have been minimized or for an open tab. All of our calendar pages open in what we call a new Print-Friendly Window or Tab (***depending on your browser and operating system). Once you leave an open window or tab it's easy to get a little lost. The effect is you click and click but nothing seems to happen but it does change in the minimized window or a not selected active tab.
If the above seems not to be the case then a work-around is to (instead of left clicking on a calendar link) right click and select open in a new window or tab.
2- Have you scanned your computer for malware? Do this especially if you have downloaded an add-on tool bar from another site.
3- Lastly, if all the above is not the case, it is rare but possible we may have missed a link. We will be happy to check that out. Letting us know does help! Please be specific as to the Year, calendar type and the month involved. Thanks!
*** Each Month, form and One-Page Calendar is built by hand. (They are not auto generated by a program). Then tested using MSIE and Chrome to maximize print area.
6. Can I edit the calendar and type information in the date boxes?
The answer is yes. Our calendars, unlike many other calendars on the Internet, are built with **HTML code, which is compatible with MS Word and many other popular text programs. You can save the calendar to your hard drive from our site and open the file using your program or simply use copy and paste to the program of your choice, edit it then save it on your computer. (See the Detailed Steps below)
** HyperText Markup Language
Open Word or text editor and create a new document and place your cursor mark in the body of the document then under Edit click on Paste or right click your mouse button and click on paste.
NOTE: A moderate knowledge of tables and how they work in Word is helpful but most people say that trial and error works also. Get used to using the "Undo" under edit until you find your way.
One tip: The size of the text can distort the calendar page. Changing the size of the text, making it larger or smaller, usually fixes that problem.
7. Is there a way to print the entire year without having to print each month?
For 2017 we have produced a year calendar that can be printed with one print command. This is a Beta Test for our site. With the ability for most people to print duplex Simply go to our Home Page and select the link to the print all months. Please let us know your experience with this new option.
The Manual Duplex Method offers two Face to face pages of the same month. Your printer will have specific detailed instructions. This should get you started. With a little help from Print Preview you should have your calendar printed in no time.
