I found a simple calendar program but it is still not exactly what I am looking for.  

 

I found and tried Desktopcal, a Desktop Calendar program, which allows showing a month by month calendar, able to let user enter text information to plainly be visible right on each calendar day, but I still find some problems:

  • Calendar Day numbers font color cannot be changed
  • Background color for each calendar day must be empty, ability to make it colorless or white
  • Notes entered on any calendar day maintain a fixed font size and cannot be changed
  • Border around each calendar day difficult to see - contrast cannot be changed
  • Printed calendar is no better for visibility

 

I have tried internet search for a simple calendar program but this Desktopcal is the best I have been able to find.  Does ANYBODY know of another better one?  The way I would want to use it is to make a MONTH calendar, put in reminder notes on some calendar day, and print the calendar and post it on a wall.  Desktopcal is just not good enough.   Anyone know of ANYTHING like what I look for ?

(Preferably also want to keep each calendar as a file)

I use the Lightning calendar add-on in Mozilla Thunderbird, and it works well for me.

 

YMMV

It sounds like you're not looking for a calendar program, in the way I use that phrase, at all, but a yearly calendar template that you can fill in and print each month.

 

If you have MS-Word, or similar, see the results of this search:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=ms+word+2017+monthly+calendar+printable+free&t=hz&atb=v33-7__&ia=web

 

There's got to be one that fits the bill, as there are too many to even hope to look at them all.

More accurately, MONTHLY CALENDAR TEMPLATE; and although MS Word does let user create a form, inserting and adjusting a table, to make into a calendar, the answer is EXCEL Spreadsheet program, and maybe if lucky, other 'office' applications with spreadsheet programs included would also allow for making a calendar. 

 

(only recently been reminded that Excel will do this after seeing a demonstration on youtube as part of search)
