2012 Compact Calendar Updates

2012 Compact Calendar Updates

"Compact Calendar 2012" I’ve just updated the USA Compact Calendar for 2012. It’s the same “Candy Bar of Time” you know and love, with a few new features:

  • Start the calendar on any arbitrary date
  • Month Separation Lines (thanks to Daniel Kinal for the tip)
  • Improved 1st Day highlighting
  • Improved Day Abbreviations
  • US Letter and A4-size PDFs included

In addition to these new features, I’ve also made a short video that describes how to modify the calendar’s starting date, length, and color formatting. So check out the updated calendar.

I’ve noticed that quite a few of the international versions of the Compact Calendar are using old versions of the spreadsheet; if you’re making a version for your own country, I encourage you to update to the latest spreadsheet base.

    Thanks Dave!

    Did you make a change that requires Excel 2007 or newer or is this requirement due to a change in the tools you use?

    Last year I changed the .xlt file to .xls and opened it with Excel 2000.

    I figured it was time to ditch Excel 95. Excel 2003 should still be able to open it, actually, though I don’t have it installed. There are some differences in the way that Excel conditional formatting works that started in 2003, so that’s the new standard.
