Create a 2017 calendar in just 10 steps

Even with the help of InDesign tutorials, it can be a very time-consuming task to create a calendar in InDesign, thanks to the constant need to cross-reference your dates to make sure they're right. But it doesn't have to be like this: Scott Selberg has created a great piece of JavaScript compatible with InDesign that automatically creates basic calendar designs for you.

By using this script you can eradicate the possibility of getting your days and dates wrong, and add a number of different holiday options. In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to use Selberg’s script to create a calendar, and then walk you through how to edit it from a grid-based format to list format.
