12 page calendar - now A4 paper size and no holidays".
So let me know what you think of these calendars.
This weekend I have made my own version of a calendar created in Calc.
Because I do not like hard-coded solutions.
Completely configurable in any language, with its own holidays etc.
For an A4 version <https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_KxxxP2us0mbVNoYlJiUDlfcUE/edit?usp=sharing>
Especially for users in the USA an Legal version
Try it out and give me a response.
Greetings from the Netherlands,
Piet Jan Koeleman.
If I was to do a calendar from scratch, Calc would be my choice as
well. I would do one sheet per month, though.
But for some, they might want to print out several months at a time or
make the whole year a single PDF file. That is why I choose to start
with a .doc template.
I am currently working on making the "Monday as the first day of the
week" A4 paper size version. There are no holidays, since I do not
think it is up to me to add them for other countries.
It can easily be changed to other languages, since all you have to do is
change the names of the days of the week and the names of the months to
what they are called in the non-English languages.
That is the key, really. How easy would the calendar file/template be
able to be modified for the users language, if they are using it as a
template to make their own language version of the calendar.
Actually, I did not even know that most of the world used Monday as the
first day of the week, until I was told that the other nations do not
use the USA's religious calendar where Sunday is the first day and the
7th day [when God rested in many religions] would be Saturday. So I had
to work on modifying my LO themed calendar to "Monday first", plus make
it work better for the A4 paper size than my other version[s] were.
The real key to these posts/threads is the fact that there are people
from several areas of the world working on different versions of LO
themed calendars that our users could download and use. As soon as we
find a place to list them all, then we will have a good selection of
calendars to choose from. Look at MSO's calendar download page. Right
now there are few 2014 calendars all made with Publisher it looks like],
but they had a lot of variety of 2013 calendars. I would like to see LO
users work on making a large variety of 2014 calendars to share with all
of our users, and a place for them to be displayed - with thumbnails -
side by side.
