Saving calendars

by BJSimmons, Wednesday, June 06, 2012, 10:31 (1995 days ago)

I have been having great fun with this software and it has many features I've yet to investigate as I'm only learning at computing.

Two points please.

1. Before I purchased I asked about pixel size for photos and was told that if my photo is too big (pixels) I could still use it. This is fine, but ALL my photos seem to incur the wrath of the 'hooter'! Does this really matter, as I can't see any deterioration in the eventual result?

2. Much more important, is that I have yet to master how to save a calender correctly. I have managed to save some, whilst others may save Jan, or Jan and Dec! Should I save the calender in one go (13 sheets) or page by page? The latter seems a drag and I'm sure not correct. So far I have made one calendar about 6 times but it has failed to save.

I have tried saving it to 'documents' but it seems to return to your software to print. I assume I cannot completely separate a completed calendar and move it to 'documents' and then process/print independently of your software?

What I really need is an 'idiot proof' set of step by step instructions as to how to save all my hard work! Is there some way that you can help me by producing a list of actions that I need to do to save the calendars!!!!!!!!

Please help!

Best wishes

BJS

If it works OK on your PC then it works.
There should not be any loss of quality
The warning is there as it can "hang" computer on older PCs

Saving the calendar should save the calendar as a cld file.
It is not necessary to save each page.
cld files do NOT contain picture data (just a references to your picture files)
So pictures files need to still be available (not on a CDROM or memory stick that has since been removed.

I have tried saving it to 'documents' but it seems to return to your software to print. I assume I cannot completely separate a completed calendar and move it to 'documents' and then process/print independently of your software?

To save calendar as completed calendar including pictures:
Click Print to PDF on File menu.
This will save as PDF file which can be opened by Adobe Acrobat (or similar) on most computers.

Save picture files to PC's hard disk first (eg to My Documents\Simply Calenders\Graphics\)
Create calendar
File, Save As...
type your preferred file name. OK

Thank you very much indeed. I waited 9 days for an email! I went back to website to 'remind' you and found my reply! Thanks. You see what you are up against and maybe understand the sort of 'simple' questions that I asked! Still having great fun with the software, but now saving hard for more ink!!! Thanks very much indeed.
