Well it has taken a while but I THINK I have finally worked it out. There is a UK/A5 version and a US 8.5 x 11 inch version.
You can see that the real difference is in the space between – print on one side, re-load the paper, after you’ve made sure you know how it will feed thru YOUR printer, and print on the reverse.
This middle bit is the area where, once cut apart, you will be punching your holes. and speaking of that – if you don’t have a 6-hole punch in the A5 Filofax format, but only a single hole punch (like ME!) then this guide may help. I’ve used it for punching the hole for my planner. You can see what it looks like here.
The A5 version – to be printed on A4 paper, both sides, and cut in half
one weekly sheet, for specific tasks.Meant to be folded off centre along the line. Print the NOTES lines on the back. This is meant to be used for anything specific. I mentioned exercise routine, blogging schedule, meal planning etc. but really it can be for ANYTHING. Or everything – if you only want to use this week-at-a-glance version, or use it with another planner, you can.
The PDF of the month tabs and important dates circles works for both and you can get that here
The US LETTER Version – to be printed on US letter/8.5 x 11 paper, both sides, and cut in half
This is more about the size paper in your printer. BOTH versions fit the Filofax A5 size planner, and maybe others as well.
PRINT ONE SHEET TO TEST. Please, please, do NOT PRINT 100s of pages till you know they will print reasonably well on your printer.
I have no idea what your native printer margins are or how it will “read” the file. If things don’t print right you can try a few things:
-look at the paper size in your printer dialog box. Does it say US LETTER? if not, change it to that
-try clicking Scale to fit, if you have that option.
-make sure you are printing the right version. US letter paper is wider and shorter than A4. Printing the US letter file on A4 paper isn’t completely unusable but printing A4 sheets on US letter paper is likely to cut things off
If you like the style of this and want other specific pages, let me know. It’s been a real learning experience and I always enjoy that so I am probably going to be willing to have a bash at a few more pages. And if you encounter any weird problems, do LMK o I can see if they are specific to YOU or a more global issue.
Now I still have some WOYWW visits to return and I vow to get thru them TODAY. And I’ll get back to the pop-up cube how-to maybe tomorrow – although no one who has seen it seems keen to give it a go, so I’m not going to stress about that….
