v1: Reference: One or Two Years on One Page (deprecated)

This application has been replaced by Dynamic Templates v2.x: The Next Generation. Please use the link to the left

This is the next installment of the Digital Templates, a series of cross platform applications that should ease the load on the folks who make calendar templates. This program generates a single page template of one or two calendar years based upon the settings you choose (date, margins, and so forth), and uses the basic D*I*Y Planner look and feel as designed by Douglas Johnston.

This is multi-platform software. Below are download links for both Windows and Mac OS X applications, as well as the source code. Through the Nordic Magic of the Qt Libraries, both of these applications were built from the same source code. This source can be built on any platform supported for Qt 4.3, including Linux.

Here's a shot of the Mac version:

And here's the Windows version:

Basic instructions:

  • Be sure you have the font "Blue Highway" installed as it is hard coded into the application
  • Set the years to display and the preferred day to start the week.
    Use the "Page Setup" button to set paper size
  • The "lines per inch" controls the spacing of the Special Dates list
  • Set your line width to look good on the display.
  • The "Print" button will send the page through your printer drivers.
  • The "Save PDF" button will create a PDF file.
  • INTERNATIONALIZATION: Two simple changes -- the addition of translation files, and the addition of a locale string in parentheses in the title bar. The string in the title bar lets you know what your system is looking for. The translation file name is "DIY_Two_Year_Ref_LOCALE.qm" For the translations to work, the string in the title bar has to match the LOCALE part of the translations file and the translation file needs to be located in the same directory as the application. A slight renaming of the translation file may be necessary as the locale consists of both a language and a country indicator.

That's part of the Nordic Magic. It is multi-lingual. Dutch and French are explicitly covered now, other languages are easy to add. Please let me know
