Q&D 2 page per day calendar
I use the 2-page system with simple scheduling & task lists on one page and a diary page on the other for various things, such as daily meeting notes. I've found the stuff on the site very interesting - but one of my frustrations has been trying to get calendar pages printed correctly. The Dynamic Templates app is pretty good, but personally I think it needs some refinement - after trying to make it print usable pages, I gave up & created this very simple page setup for a generic, undated calendar & diary page using OpenOffice's Calc (spreadsheet application).
It's black & white, and pretty plain looking - I'm printing on a B&W laser, so I didn't want color. However, it's easy enough to customize this, as well as editing the fields for time of day (my shift starts at 7AM). Granted, it's not very flashy - I also worked a bit with the DIY kit, but found it cumbersome to work with - but it does what it's supposed to do.
Feel free to customize it any way you see fit, and please upload any cool variations for others.
Note that this will print pages with the schedule on the right-hand page, while the diary is on the left. This works for me, but it's backwards from the Day Timer page I patterned this after.
[EDIT] If you want it the other way around, then I suggest adjusting the inner & outer columns. Notice that the image has the wider margins (1/2") on the outer edges of the page. If you make them smaller, and then make the center columns on either side of the cut line 1/2" wide, you should be good to go. The two 8-1/2" x 11" pages are created vertically (i.e. scroll down to see page 2) so your changes should reflect on both pages if you work with columns.
FYI, I made it 2 pages so I could easily do duplex printing.
Also, row height should be .25" all the way down.
