Creating a Calendar with the Calendar Wizard

By Roger Wambolt

This tutorial will show you how to use the Calendar Wizard extension for CorelDRAW X8. You can use this tool to create a custom calendar on a full page, portion of a page, or inside an object. From multipage calendars with various layouts, to one-pagers showing the year at a glance, the choices are virtually limitless.

      Hello Aneka,

      Macros are considered a professional feature, and are not available in the Home and Student edition of CorelDRAW. You can find more details on what is and is not included in the CorelDRAW Home and Student comparison chart.

      Hope this helps!

      Hello Tincho,

      In CorelDRAW X7, the Calendar Wizard can be found under Tools > Macros > Run Macro, and selecting the CalendarWizard macro (it may be listed as CalendarWizard.gms).

      The fine print here is that macro support requires the professional edition of CorelDRAW, so this would not be available in Home or Academic versions of CorelDRAW.

      Hope this helps,

    Just purchased Corel Draw Suite 2018 – Calendar Wizard not other Creative Tool shows in the Get More Tab. I thought by the way this Tutoring shows it would be there to use. Guess I am wrong or I need to find out how to make it visible.

      Hello Tavi,

      You can find the Calendar Wizard as a pre-loaded macro in CorelDRAW 2018! Just go to Tools > Macros > Run Macro, and pick the Calendar Wizard from the dropdown.

      Best,

    Really well done, clear, understandable. Bravo! Would like to know how you EDIT the calendar, noticed some of my events like the word “Christmas” too big for the cell.

      Hello Dee,

      Any customization you want to do that affects the entire calendar is best done before generating the calendar, when you have the macro window open. The macro generates the calendar as if you had made it by hand, meaning that after it is done the calendar is a series of individual elements on the page. If you wanted to edit the days within the calendar after the calendar was generated, you would have to edit each one individually. If modified before generation using the calendar wizard window, changes you make are global.

      Hope this helps!
