Template for a small Addressbook
Lately I changed to a small ring bound planner in the Franklin-Covey pocket size format (3 1/2 x 6 inches; 89 x 152 mm). As for me the addressbook is a vital part of my planner, I had to bring my contacts into that ringbook.
For this purpose I made a template in scribus that brings three pages on an A4 sheet. Although the start-up filling I puchased for the planner brought an A-Z-register, I decided to include tabs in the design. That way I will not carry 13 black plastic stripes containing virtually no information with me.
All elements are arranged in layers, so they can easily be altered or switched off for printing. The layer ContentText has chained textboxes where the contacts have to be filled in with the story editor (of scribus). To faciliate formatting I added two paragraph styles: EntryHeadline and EntryBody.
For me I set up one file for each section (AB; CD; etc.). If someone has very much contacts starting with a specific letter I suggest one individual file for that letter. It is possible to add more pages in the template by using the master-pages I defined. But then it is necessary also to add the new texboxes and to continue the chain.
In fact this template can be used for any form of the specific size in a 3-up way.
Some printers might be tricky in printing double sided, but this topic is covered elsewhere in this forum.
