Strange Calendar Template Behaviour


N

news

If I create a new calendar (one page for now) and change the picture
and shrink down the calendar bit to a 1/4 of the page, and then save it
as a temple, I expected that when I create a new calendar based on the
template, it look like the template I created earlier. Well, it does
until I then change the date range at which point the formatting of the
new pages is as the very _original_ page. It's as if Publisher 2003 is
retaining its original format hidden somewhere inside the template I
created ready to spring itself on you just when you don't want it and
thought you had got rid of it!

Is this a bug, or is it possible to force it to use my calendar
formatting (as in the date bit) when changing the date range? (I don't
really want to have to apply the same calendar edits to each page
manually.)

TIA
Mark

No, not a bug, a quirk of operation would be a better term.
Due to the calander been a Template/Wizard, you must expect the calander to
retain some of the programming of the Wizard.

When you originally create your calendar with a wizard, saving it will retain the
original information. If you want to change the date range, you will have to do your
calendar a different way. Copy/paste your calendar into a new publication. This will
break the wizard. The results will be that you will have to do this procedure with
each month.

With each month? Yikes - that's not good news! It certainly is a very
strange piece of software in that case. :)
