export to a DTP program ?

by hazel emmerich @, Saturday, January 04, 2014, 14:45 (1383 days ago)

I.- evaluating 'simply-calenders' for a few days, now
brings me up to the following question :

is it possible (within the full version of the program)
to export a calendar(-page) to a file capable of
being modified within a desktop publishing program -
where the items would be live text/picture, or
mixed-content boxes/fields ?
this capability would open up a much wider scope for
the usability of the program - advanced users could
'tweak' the output to enviable results.

II.- 'simply calenders' is very appealing on the basis
of its 'international' character, but the user-interface
structure needs quite a bit of (logic-) refurbishing ;
e.g. 'week-numbering'-option is now being set under the
'language'-button, etc., etc.....

III.- since you seem to have a german translation,
would you consider a serb+croat one from me ?
((croats use archaic slav month-names + other subtleties))
in that case, i'd propose a settlement in exchange for a
perpetual user-license for your program.
.... otherwise, i'd buy your user-licence - provided your
answer to my #I. question is positive. :-)

best regards from budapest, yours - hazelem

Full version can export to editable PDF format which can be edited by (full) Adobe Acrobat

Preference for Monday/Sunday start to week is included with regional settings as there are regional differences in preferences.
EU countries generally favour Monday start to week whereas US prefers Sunday.

Thank you for the offer.
Simply Calenders already has the option to produce calendars in Serbian (with Cyrillic or roman characters) and Croatian.
In addition to this, there are optional interfaces in English, French, German, Hungarian, Swedish, Danish, Spanish and Italian.
There are no plans to expand the language options for the user interface.

... very good,- provided the user is ready to cope with a bulky, expensive and complex PDF-editor, starting off by unstacking up to 13 pages [in case of individual month -designs], etc.
how about a single-page export to [e.g.] a bitmap file ?!

i didn't mean the week-start, but rather the week-numbering option [1->52} is tucked away ...

In addition to this, there are optional interfaces in English, French, German, >Hungarian, Swedish, Danish, Spanish and Italian.

...'you saved my day':
thanks for rejecting my offer to translate your interface into serb/croat - it would
have been the lowest hourly wage i had ever had ! :-) .... my idea was to bring your program closer to the ~20 million serb/croat speakers [= 2,5 times that of an equally non-affluent hungarian population].
... however, my objections to the 'untidiness' of your program-interface remain, e.g. : 'events' - like your aunt's birthday, on the one hand and state and/or religious 'holidays' on the other hand are not differentiated ;
in europe, we 'print' holidays in red, while your aunt's birthday is just a caption under a certain date.
there are similar idiosyncrasies throughout.
moreover, [on your language-flag pane] some of my croat friends could even be offended seeing an extinct pre-ww2 yougoslav-kingdom flag - which closely resembles their current one - being baloon-captioned 'serbian' [... and accordingly, some of my
serb friends could say: this is not our flag!].
facit: if you pretend to be multi-kulti, you've got to be very careful - and do much better.
;-) ... by the way, i didn't know that russia is not in europe ?! - or you don't know the difference between the EU and the european continent [- shame, especially assuming the seat of your company to be in europe].

nevertheless, i'll probably be buying your program for my wife to play around with.

Simply Calenders can indeed also export to various graphic file formats including bitmap, JPG TIFF and GIF

Simlar the week start day, week-numbering option [1->52/53] is determined by region.
There is a US/Canada standard and an ISO standard.

With regard to your offer to translate the interface into Serbo / Croat, please feel free to contact Skerryvore Software by email

Thankyou for the head up on flags.
