I'm coming in a little late to this...but I'm wondering if anyone can point me to an InDesign template compatible with CS5.5? Specifically I am looking for the Franklin Covey type planner, in the "Classic" size 5.5" x 8.5" (half page). I would like a 2012 calendar that prints each month on two pages, as well as either a day-on-two-pages spread, or a week-on-two-pages spread.
Can anyone point me toward such an animal?
Hope someone can help me out. I have taken a 2012 calendar from a designer (very experienced in InDesign) and am needing to do the donkey work to set it up for next year... well, I am running really late with this because I can't figure out how the calendar is set up. I can change the date of the first of the month and everything follows, except that here seems to be extra tabs in there.
Would someone be willing to look at one month for me, and see if they can see something I'm missing? I have left the template (one page of it) in my Dropbox folder (public) and hope someone can advise me...
At the end of each week there are two tabs, not one. The second tab is to make the line wrap to the next week.
If you delete a day from the first week, delete its tab as well. At that point the two-tab "end" of that week will have moved to the left. Delete one, so the day numbers after that are in their correct position again, and add a single tab at the end of that line so the next one aligns correctly. Do this for every line.
I've done calendars for 2013 in InDesign and Illustrator – in InDesign the date are now in the middle of the boxes rather than on the sides as in previous years. They are saved as INDD CS5 as well as IDML. The Illustrator ones are in AI and EPS and a legacy Illustrator 8. The text boxes are linked so you can convert them to subsequent years. Hope they help someone.
Is there anyone with CS4. If so, can you produce an INX of the IMDL calendar here http://robcubbon.com/free-downloads/2013-Calendar-12-pages.idml
Lots of people are asking me for this calendar compatible with CS3 and I want to link to it here:
I have just done the calendars for 2014.
Interestingly the 2014 Calendar is repeated every +11 and +6 years
So go ahead and change the year to
2014+11 = 2025
2025+ 6 = 2031
2031+11 = 2042
and so on
Same with 2013 and 2011 calendars
2012 calendars are repeated every 28 years!
So if you have calendars already made for those years - you can reuse them in about 11 years time
Interesting. I didn't know about those strange number of years between repeated years.
Actually, you can use my calendars for every year as the dates are in linked text frames and you just have to shunt them all along by typing in new ones or deleting them. You do have to go round and do a bit of cleaning up on the grayed out dates but they are quite recyclable!
Indeed - I haven't downloaded your calendars.
I quite like making my own with my own style etc. - it's a good learning curve I think.
I always recommend people make their own - but whatever floats peoples boats.
