About The Planner File Formats
PNG format: PNG stands for portable network graphics. It is a standard format which enables users to transfer files on the internet. The advantage with this format is the file size is small and it will work with most computer programs including Microsoft Word, Open Office Writer, Microsoft Paint and any other major art and graphics program. The disadvantage for our use is that although you can print the file, it is not the very best quality.
PDF format: PDF stands for portable document format. This format was originally developed by Adobe Systems, but has since been converted to public use. There are some programs and browsers which will work with this file, but if you don't have a program that will, you can get a free one by Adobe called Adobe Reader. You may already have this program, but if you don't, it is a recommended download for viewing and printing any PDF file. The program is free and can be found at www.adobe.com/downloads/. Look for "Get Adobe Reader". The advantages of using this format is that the document retains all original quality, fonts, etc. to make for a great looking printed document. The disadvantages are that the file sizes are usually larger. Use this format for the best looking document.
How To View Free Planners
To view any of our daily, weekly or monthly planners just click the appropriate planner link among the categories above to navigate to that particular planner page. As you scroll down the page you will see small graphic images of that section's planners. To the left of each planner image is two links. One is for the PNG format and the other is for the PDF format. If you click your left mouse button on either link, a new window or tab will open displaying a larger view of that planner. The PNG format would be the quickest. With the PDF, if it does not open you may need to get Adobe Reader as explained above.
To view an event, project or financial planner, just navigate to one of those planner pages, then select the items you want to appear on your planner. You also have the option to include as many as twenty additional items by entering each of them into one of the twenty textboxes provided. When you finish selecting and adding items, click the create your planner button to create a printable page. This page will open in a new window or tab allowing you to view the planner you created.

How To Print Free Planners
How to print your free planners will depend on which file format you choose. Below is detailed instructions for both. Our printing instructions are based on using Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. Other browsers will print the planners as well, but the procedures may be different.
PNG Printing Instructions
When viewing the planners as described above, you will see links for the PNG format. When you click this planner link with your left mouse button, it will open in a new window or tab. At this point, the easiest way to print the planner is to use your browser's print feature.
To print a planner using your browser, first select "file" on the file menu near the top of your browser. Then select "print preview" on the popup menu. If you do not have a file menu at the top of your browser, you will need to turn on the browser "menu bar" by right clicking your mouse in a blank spot near the top of your browser. A menu will appear allowing you to "check" the "menu bar" option.
"Print preview" will allow you to change the orientation (portrait or landscape) and also to remove the headers and footers from the printed page. If you see page numbers, file names or dates across the top and/or bottom of the sheet in "print preview", then you will need to turn off the headers and footers. In later versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer there is a button in "print preview" which will toggle the headers and footers on and off. If your version does not have this button, you will need to go back to the file menu and select "file" then "page setup". In "page setup" you can remove the headers and footers as well as change page margins. For best results, keep page margins at .50 inches. If your page does not print properly, you can experiment with the page margins.
When everything is set up the way you want, you can click the printer icon in the top left corner of "print preview" to print your free planner.
Another way to print a planner in PNG format is to download it to your computer and open it, or import it, into another program.
For instructions on downloading planners, see below.
PDF Printing Instructions
When viewing the planners as described above, you will see links for the PDF format. When you click this planner link with your left mouse button, it should open in a new window or tab. This file is generally larger than the PNG file so if you open it this way, you may need to allow a few moments for it to open.
When the planner opens, there is a printer icon in the top left of the screen. Click this icon to print the planner on your printer.
If it does not open with a left mouse button click, you will need to download and install Adobe Reader. This program is free and will allow you to open any PDF file. To get Adobe Reader go to www.adobe.com/downloads/ and look for "Get Adobe Reader". Follow instructions to download and install to your computer.
After installing Adobe reader, you can download the PDF file to your computer, then use Reader to open it. After opening it, there will be a printer icon in the top left corner of the screen. Click this icon to print your free planners.
For instructions to downloading planners, see below.
