Thanks, linux printer solution, and a question

Thank you for making such a great contribution to the community! This is just what I always wanted the DIY templates to be! When the iCal import is done it will be perfect.

I have been printing Hipster editions using the linux version of the templates - after some fiddling probably caused by mediocre support for my printer under linux, everything worked fine (Running Ubuntu 7.10, using the Foomatic/hpijs drivers with a HP LaserJet 1320). For other peoples sake, here is a workaround it your printer does not have built-in 3x5 paper size in it's driver. If there is no 3x5 paper size in the "paper size" dialog, just select print, change the page size in the printer preferences (there is one for 3x5 and 4x6, but you could also use custom), select print, and then cancel the print job. The Paper setup dialog will have an empty box, but it will really be set to 3x5's. You can then print out your templates, formatted to 3x5.

Lastly, two questions. What license is the code released under (can others contribute under some sort of open source license)?

Are you planing on releasing a dynamic template for the "one page per week" template? A fortnight per double-sided card is really useful for the hipster, as I can fit a month on two cards, and can carry most of the year in my stack.

Thanks again,
JamesH

Thanks! I'm glad you GPLd the code - hopefully the community will step up and help you out.

More page sizes would be wonderful

There are about 14 different page sizes available in the programs, but not the one that fits into my Filofax (95 mm x 171 mm = 3,75 x 6,75 inches). Would it be possible to add it, please?

Edit: just opened the pre-TNG to see what it is like. Obviously ygor was aware of this wish already - I just have to wait for TNG to be ready. Wonderful, thanks!

where is the link?

I'm having the same problem. I have clicked on every link I can find on this page and I just keep reloading the same page!

Exactly where "at the top of the page" is the link for the calendars? Can you describe it's location or what it says--any type of identifiable characteristics?

At the top of this page

The only one that does NOT say "(deprecated)" after it.

It IS hard to find. Perhaps

It IS hard to find.

Perhaps a link that says download "HERE" for us "idiots" aparently...........

I don't even know what deprecated means........

Can I download these templates please?

I'm obviously thick as several short planks, but how do I download these templates please? All I can find is the examples, but no download link or button. Please forgive me for being stupid and help!

yes

you can download the application that makes the templates here

ical Import and Dynamic Templates

Any plans for an ical import ?
-- I like being different; I love my Ibook ; I love progress ; I made my PC smarter by adding Ubuntu ; I love creativity ; Why pay others to do what you "want/can" do yourself

Well...

iCal , Apple's calendar program, no
iCalendar, the file format, yes, I am planning to add that, but I have other things in "the pipeline". If anyone wants to help with the coding, I can make a specific request/assignment.

Oh…

Thanks for the clarification. I am not a programmer, but I am interested in what types of things are in the "pipeline"

Problems downloading

I am a great fan of your site, but I have tried to download the application, no success at all. The exe does not work. And, yes, I have tried the one without the word deprecated.

Hope you can help me! I am totally addicted to paper planners and organizers.
Thanks

What kind of system are you running and what, if anything, does it do when you try running it ?

Version 3 is coming

I have a machine loaded with MacOS 10.7 (Lion) and I am updating my development environment.

Stay tuned ! Details posted as they happen.

Wow. Now, that was a tease...

...if I ever read one! (Film @ Eleven?) There will be recurring reminders added to systems everywhere to check back in. ;-)

Thanks again ygor.
I used v2.05 just yesterday to print a few pages!

Some actual good news - not another tease

Last night, I got my development environment set up suficiently to try building the current source code.
And to my delight, it built with only a few minor adjustments of the environment. The code itself needed no change. Gotta love that portable software library from Qt !

So, what I can do is put up a Lion-compiled version of the 2.05 code in the next few days so that all you leading edge Mac folks will not be left out.

And version 3 is still coming !

Will there be a new updated version of the software?

Maybe

But the previous version still works as far as I have tried

Yes they do work fine BUT

Yes the Dynamic templates work fine, but they are still missing a couple of things. For example in the charts and checklists they say "coming soon". Perhaps they aren't worth it, but I would have used them recently when I was making a custom letter size (8.5 x 11in) planner as a gift for a friend.
