The market? Well, every year I have to search the sites for a good
printable calendar I can post on my refrigerator and write in any
appointments that come up. Then it is easy to see what is going on on
my "world" without needing to look at my computer. I usually post two
months, this one and next, there. Then near the end of the month I
take, say, February's calendar and type in everything listed there and
print it out so it looks neater.
There are still a lot of people and places where printed calendars are
needed/wanted. So here is a LibreOffice themed one [A4 in your case,
Letter in mine] to be used. How many people have a "family calendar"
where people write in "events" so everyone knows where the kids need
to be at "this event on this date"? I have a date book, but when I
get home I will write down the meetings/appointments/etc. onto my
printed calendar on my refrigerator, if the month for the "event" is
posted there. For me it is easier to quickly look at my refrigerator
for what is going on and when than search through a weekly appointment
It is also a tool that shows the "LibreOffice" name places where it
would not be normally "shown". How many people have a calendar on
their office "wall" to mark off the days and write down that there is
going to be a meeting on "such and such" day? I sure did. Your
coworkers might see the name listed there and ask about it. There are
other places where people use printed calendars posted on a wall or
other place. I use my refrigerator. Others might use a door or wall
in their home or office.
Look at the calendar market. It is big. I was thinking that later
someone could make a full "photo style" wall calendar where the
modules, and other info about LO, could be where the top photo would
be. We deal with Lulu.com for our books, and they have a calendar
service as well. One of our members created a calendar with the
"module info" along the side of the calendar instead on the top making
it a single page. If she took those graphics and placed them in a
"Lulu.com calendar template" for each month, then she would have made
a photo style wall calendar. We have no control over the style of the
calendar itself, except some limited ways to enter information in some
of the day "cells", say for holidays or events. I have a friend who
was given a Lulu.com made calendar [from her daughters] with photos of
her family for each month. It looked nice.
As for the "pressing return and goto new line without creating a new
line", I do not know what you mean.
Where are you doing this? I do not remember seeing this happen when I
was doing my editing.

I've only looked at the A4 one.
Good job, looks fine. Just for the record, what is your intended market
going to do with this? It won't alert them to an impending event.
Somehow you've made it so that if I press 'Return' I go to a new line
without it's creating a new line, and destroying the document which

I finally had some time to upload the A4 and Letter size 2014

Now I wait for approval.
These two calendars are also at:
I do want input and comments for these calendars. That is the only
way I can make them better.
The A4 calendar has Monday as the first day of the week, while the
Letter/USA one uses our standard Sunday as the first day of the week.
I used a white background LibreOffice banner found in the wiki pages.
I used LO green #4 for the weekend background shading.
The original template was a .doc file that needed a lot of editing to
make it a LO themed calendar, plus the movement of all of the days
"left" for the "Monday first" calendar. I increased the size of the
printed calendar to maximize the size of the day/cells but due to a
"quirk", I had to leave a wider bottom margin. If I enlarge the
height of the day/cells any more [for the most part], it seems that
Writer wants to place the last line of days onto the next page. Yes,
as someone pointed out, I did not use "proper styles" options, but
since I started with a .doc file, and I am not "good" at making/using
styles, I did not do the larger amount of editing required to add a
"proper" style to every cell that was either a weekday [white
background], weekend day [LO green #4], or a blank cell [15% gray].
Yes, I would not have this problem if I used Calc, but the original
template was a .doc file, so Writer it was.
Maybe, sometime in the future, I will create a Calc based 2015
The reason I like Writer based calendars is the simple fact that when
I export it to PDF I have the entire year in the file. I have not
seen a way to do that with having 12 monthly sheets in Calc.
