Transcript:Make your Own Calendar with Microsoft Publisher

Hi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing.

Today I'll show you how to create a calendar using Microsoft Publisher. First, open Microsoft Publisher. Choose publications for print in the left task pane.

Publisher Calendar Design

Click on calendars, and double-click the style you like. The calendar will automatically date itself for the current month. Notice that you can change the orientation in the left task pane. You can also change it from a monthly to yearly calendar.

Publisher Calendar Content

If you want to change the month or year, go up to Format and Calendar Options. In the left task pane click Change Date Range. In the change calendar dates box enter a new start date and a new end date.

Color for a Publisher Calendar

To change the color scheme, click Color Schemes in the left task pane. Click on a scheme to apply it to your calendar. If you want to choose your own colors, click custom color scheme at the bottom of the task pane.

Text in a Publisher Calendar

To change all the fonts, click Font Schemes. Click on one of the options to apply it to your calendar. If you prefer to just change the month of the calendar, select the text and change it by going to the toolbar at the top of the screen.

Publisher Calendar Pictures and Photos

To change the picture, right-click the image and choose Change Picture and select clip art or a picture from your computer. I will choose clip art.

Search for a picture you want by typing in a keyword and clicking GO. Click a clip art item to insert it into your calendar. Adjust the size and style of your picture using the picture toolbar.
