Publisher Calendar wizard


Recommended Posts

The one thing I would like to see in Publisher is the Calendar Wizard as was in the previous page plus applications.

I design and sell calendars and use this application to accomplish this to a certain extent to set the calendar months up.

Its the one feature that would make me buy Publisher. I use it for other design but calendars are the main reason

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forum :)

Affinity programs do not have "wizards" and the like as were in the Plus range, but the ability to create a calendar type table would probably be appreciated by many.

As a calendar publisher, we design many calendars using Serif Plus 9 mostly until we found a wizard to use with Indesign 6. If Adobe can do it, so can Infinity. It’s a question of wanting too. It will assist many of your core supporters. Go For It! Were with you.

Calendars can be difficult things to get right ;) 

Used to get the free calendars from various business. One year my parents' bank included a "Free Blank Sticker" to place over September 31. October the first was on the same day so it would've worked out okay.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.1 
Affinity Designer 2.0.0 | Affinity Photo 2.0.0 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I'm also voting for a calendar feature for APub (or AD, because AD can handle 12+1 pages for sure) :D At work we are also using the calendar wizard script (InDesign) at least 2-3 times a year. Would be awesome if Affinty Publisher would get a tool to set up calendars easily. :2_grimacing:

A Calendar Template, amongst other templates for commonly created media would be appreciated.  As it is, I don't find Affinity Publisher to be very useful or a time saving tool.  Not having templates and/or wizards is a step backwards in technology, and until you incorporate useful ones, I'm not likely to recommend your software to anyone.  I will recommend Serif's old Software though, because I've found all their applications easy to use, well thought out, and a complete set of tools to save time and create excellent publications and documents.

@Copper Star Media Yes, that's all done manually -- as everything is on one page, it's easy to see if the numbers and days connect.

For a day planner or something similar, I would probably try to find a smart way of misusing page and chapter numbers, make twelve files for the month and put the file name inthe document ... or have an intern do it and fire him the second I spot the first mistake (grin).

But seriously: If you look at it calendars frim an amount of text point of view, it's just about getting 365 numbers right, no impossible task.
