Is this software server-based?
No. HTML Calendar Maker Pro is a stand-alone application, run on a single
Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, or XP workstation, that generates web pages
that can be manually transferred (i.e., uploaded or copied) to a server that
resides on either an intranet or the Internet.
Can I import calendars from other programs?
Calendars may be imported if they are in comma-separated value (CSV)
format and they must contain the event followed by the date (in mm/dd/yyyy format) of that event.
Microsoft Outlook can export calendars in this CSV format. However, HTML Calendar Maker Pro
cannot accept multiple events that occur on the same day. In other words,
each date can only be listed once in each CSV file. See the User's Guide
for more information on .cal files, which implement this CSV style.
Can I use this program in conjunction with a web page editor?
Certainly. A good way to customize your calendars further is to use a web
page editor like Dreamweaver. To modify your calendar in a
web page editor, first save the calendar as a web page file and then open
the file in the editor of your choice. HTML Calendar Maker Pro does not
need to be running in order to use a separate web page editor.
What elements are saved when saving a calendar file?
Every event for the current month is saved in a calendar (.cal) file,
which includes any links, bullets, and all web page formatting. Color
schemes are not stored in calendar files but as
global settings instead. These elements are applied to your calendars
when they are generated as web pages.
How do I print my calendars?
Although HTML Calendar Maker Pro does not have a print feature, your
Internet browser does. To print a calendar, generate it as a web page,
preview it in your default browser, and print it from your browser.
When the web page is generated, why are the columns different widths?
Varying column widths may appear in your browser for many different reasons. This is
caused by your Internet browser's attempt to best-fit elements within the
width of each column. This is usually caused by:
How do I make a calendar for a month in the past or future?
Although HTML Calendar Maker Pro displays the current month when first started,
you can choose a month in any year in either the past or the future. To make
a calendar for another month, click on the File menu and choose "New."
How can I transfer my registered copy to a new computer?
All you need is your original registration code.
Download the latest version of the program and
install it on your new computer. When you run the newly-installed program,
it will ask you for your registration code. Once the code is entered, you
will have full use of HTML Calendar Maker Proonce again. Please be sure to
discontinue use of the program on the old computer, since each registration
code may only be used on one computer. Obviously, if you are discarding the
old computer, discontinuing use will not be an issue. However, if you wish
use HTML Calendar Maker Proon more than one computer, we ask that you
purchase a registration code for each additional computer.
Can I use my registration code on more than one computer?
As stated in the license agreement, which can be found in the User's Guide
and displayed during installation of the program, it is asked that you
purchase a registration code for each computer on which you plan to run
Web Page Calendar Maker. Visit the order page for
ordering and discount information for multiple registration codes.
When downloading a newer version, what steps should be taken?
When updating your previous version of HTML Calendar Maker Pro with a new
version, it is typically best to uninstall the previous version first, To
uninstall, go to the Control Panel and choose Add/Remove Programs. When
uninstalling the program, You may also be prompted to perform a "rollback"
to previous system settings, which is not necessary. Your registration code
is stored even when the program is uninstalled. Unless your calendars are
stored in the same folder as the actual program, you do not need to make a
backup of your calendars. Once the latest version has been
downloaded, run the file to install HTML
Calendar Maker Pro. Your settings, including your registration code, will
reappear when the new version program is started.
Why won't it accept my registration code?
To resolve this issue, ensure that all dashes are included and that there are
no spaces in the registration code. Note that the
registration code is commonly confused with the product code of HTML Calendar Maker Pro
(3060-1) as well as the order number. If the program still states that your registration
code is invalid, request a replacement code.
