calendar template?

Is there a calendar template in Corel Graphic Suite 12?  I can't seem to find it.

  • Don't know of any templates, though you could certainly make your own.
    However there is a Calendar creation wizard that came with most versions
    of CGS 12.
    Go to Tools/Visual Basic/Play

    At the bottom of the dialog look in the drop down menu for Calendar
    Wizard. Select it, then click the Run button. It's fairly self
    explanatory after that, though I do a detailed tutorial on it in my
    CorelDRAW Continued classes.

    Don't be worried by the fact that it uses VBA. You'll never need to see
    a single line of code.

    Have fun!

    Thats awesome! I've been working with corel for a few years and I didn't know that. I guess I didn't really needed it or I always made my own calendar from scratch. Thanx!!!

    You can find the answer in the previous posts. Go to the Tools menu / Macros / Play macro... and choose "Calendar Wizard". It's simple and fast, you can create your calendar in a few seconds

    I really recommend this. I 've been using this for a while. A real time saver especially at the end of the year when you have to design 100's of calendars.

    + you  save lots of $ with the time you will take to do one from scratch!

    Once you create the basic calendar in the Calendar Creator, you can then edit your page(s) to add whatever extras you want onto it.

    There is one caveat, though. If you have the Educational Edition or some of the OEM editions of version 12, you may not have VBA enabled. In that case, you'll have to do all the work from scratch. I highly recommend updating to at least a full version of 12 and preferably on up to X4.

    Have fun!

    I checked out a tutorial on creating a calendar and it works fine.  But after watching it, it never answered my questiion about adding text to a date. 

    I want to enter peoples names and birth year on a family history calendar and not have to re-enter them every year.  I tried using the "holidays" feature, but it only allows one text entry per day, some dates have more than one entry, either 2 birthdays on that date or a birthday and an anniversary.  And if it falls on a holiday like say Valentine's Day, then the text for that will disappear.  Is there anyway around that?  I know I can generate the calendar and then add dates, but then can I open the file next year and change the year in have all the text move with the date?

    Like my birthday on was on a Sunday this year and next year will be on a different week day, but still on the same "date".  I need the text to move with the date.  (I hope I'm not being too confusing...)
