How to Create a Calendar in CorelDraw

Did you know that it is very easy to create a calendar in CorelDraw? All you need to do is to set the size of the document and the 'CorelDraw's macro script will take care of the rest.

The script that is included in CorelDRAW is capable of creating a calendar at any size that you may require; it is just a matter of setting and conguring the proper settings.

In this example, I will create a letter size calendar that displays January 2014.

Steps:
1. Start by creating a new document. In the New Document dialog, select Letter (A) then Landscape (B).

2. From the Tools menu, select Macros >  Run Macro.

3. When the Run Macro dialog box opens, from the Macros in: drop-down (at the bottom of the dialog), select CalendarWizard (CalendarWizard.gms) and click Run.
