Anyone know of a template for a 2011 calendar for Indesign? I would like to save some time inputing dates, holidays, etc.
Much obliged if anyone has one.
If you open one of the older scripts you can modify it pretty easily to 2011, 2012, 2013. The script I have covers a 3 year period. I changed the dates from 2007, 2008, 2009 to 2010, 2011, 2012. You have to really search for dates carefully. I'll look at my script and see how I did it.
Edit: Lisa, I modified script I have on file. Click through my name to email me and I will send you back the script.
Adobe has a 2010 Calendar template here:
I wonder if they are working on 2011 soon. Could be easily modified.
How come people need scripts to do calendars?
They're very simple to do. It's just 12 text boxes
Start with January - insert a table of 5 rows x 7 columns.
Set up a paragraph style that has auto numbering enabled.
Insert the days of the week on the top row
Insert a blank return into each cell with the day starting January, which is a Saturday
When you get to 31 that's January finished.
Copy and paste that text frame, then change the month to February, starts Tuesday and ends on 28 Monday.
Just add or remove returns so that the autonumbering adds the correct date.
Then continue like that.
It couldn't be easier. You'd have it done in about 5 minutes.
It's just a matter of styling the tables and and figuring out the spacing etc.
Well 5 minutes might have been a bit gracious - I've created calendar templates and I've never needed a script for it and it's been quite quick. Given that this thread is now on it's second day I'd probably have my template completed by now.
I've done my own calendar grids. Trust me. Takes far more than 5 minutes.
Maybe 10-20 minutes. The template that I used (which is in my post above), is setup so all you have to do is tab to the next number. Very easy to change the setup of that one without having to reformat.
Mr. Met I would love to have a copy of the 2011 calendar if you have one. I tried to contact you privately but it says private on your email. Please reply back to [removed by moderator] if you can help me.
Cheryl, I removed your email from your post to keep the spam bots at bay. If you clcik on Mr. Met's avatar to open his profile you'll find you can send him a Private Message without the need to have a public email.
I would also appreciate a template for a calendar for next year.
I tried downloading the one offered here,
but when opening the zip file, I am told that either my InDesign (3.0.5) is not up to date (it is) or I don't have the appropriate plug ins. But what plug ins are needed?
Would be grateful of someone's assistance.
Tried it again, and the message I get is:
In Design Content Manager
/!\ Cannot open "2010calendarcs3.indt". Please upgrade your plug-ins to their latest versions, or upgrade to the latest version of Adobe InDesign.
Neither can I figure out how clicking on the avatar gives me the ability to send a private message... (Mind you, I wasn't logged in when I tried earlier, perhaps it will work now.)
You can however reuse calendars from certain years http://whencanireusethiscalendar.com/?y=2011
And 2011 can be repurposed from 2005 - and a quick search on the InDesign Template website

Gives you calendars you can use.
If you go back up a level, there are several calendar wizards/makers listed there as well. I have never tried them, but they may work for you:
I have been checking sites regularly and this site discussion often. Are there any updates in regard to 2011 InDesign calendar designs? I used the 2010 template to help create a photo calendar for Therapeutic Riding Association with all proceeds to help them out. Can anyone send me a link or template that can be used for a 2011 photo calendar to help this organization once again?
(Right click - Save As...)
Put it in C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 6.0\en_EN\Scripts\Scripts Panel (Windows 7, InDesign CS4).
For me works fine!
Might as well get a script to do all the layouts and designs you do then?
Seriously - a script is quite handy for this. But where's the fun in that?
How can you get a calendar wrong?
Well if you want to use a script then that's fine, I love scripts. Scripts are cool. But I was just saying it's easy to do it yourself, you learn lots and you make your own style of calendar. I guess I may have been doing them so long that it's just second nature to me.
I just want to thank those who sent me links and information regarding my request. I managed to get the updated calendar template complete with moon phases emailed to me and now I'm good to go. It certainly saves time when you are trying to help a non-profit organization and are donating time and photos to help out. Again, thanks!
I'm working in Indesign CS4 and I need a calendar for 2011. I need
the whole year in 12 boxes to fit into a fairly small space. Can anyone help with something ready made? It would be excellent if it had Australian Holidays on it. Trisha
