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. I keep clicking on a calendar month but nothing happens! Why!!?
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 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 possible we may have missed a link. We will be happy to check that out. You letting us know does help! Please be specific as the Year, which calendar 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 Firefox to maximize print area.
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 calendar won’t print on one page. Why? or... 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. If one or more of the month pages print over to another page, and you have followed the print in Landscape or Portrait instructions, here are a few things you can check:
If any of these measures do not work, please write us. Be sure and tell us which calendar (Name), year and month is involved.
5. Is there a way I can make the calendar pages bigger?
Yes you can! The two easiest ways are:
1 - Adjust the Left and right side margins on your print setup. The calendars are set to 100% to fit across all platforms. 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 - Use the Scale Option by moving it up incrementally from 100% in your Preview Window or Print Preview. For example, using the 2019 Annual Calendar, we can increase it to 107% in Chrome Browser and 102% in Internet Explorer before in spills over to a second page. Using this method, as the percent increases, the bottom of the calendar moves down.
3- Some printer setups today allow for a "Fit Page" options. But the changes are usually minimal.
Of course if you want to make the calendar smaller simply do the reverse of 1 and 2.
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.
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 Basic 2017 Calendar Page and select the "Print 2017 Full Year using Duplex Option or Single Sided ". 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.
