FAQ

You should be able to customize and print all planners on this site free of charge. If you have encountered a difficulty, then please check the following FAQ for a solution. If you don’t find a solution, then please leave a comment on the page on which you have a problem and we will try to help.

How to Print the Planner?

You can either print directly by clicking on the printer icon or save the planner on your PC and print from the file. When printing directly from the app, check the print preview before you print. If the printable does not fit on the page, then change the settings until it does fit (for example, click on “fit on page” if your browser has that option). Alternatively, just download the file and open it to print. If you cannot print directly (for example, if you have a popup blocker installed on your PC) then just download the file and print it from your PC.

How to Save the Templates?

Click on the download button to save (the cloud icon). You can save in the following formats: Jpg, Png, PDF, and SVG.

Why can’t I download it as an image?

In some cases, you cannot download it as an image. This happens when the file is relatively “heavy” (more than 1.2MB). If you try to download it as an image and it doesn’t download then try and download it as a PDF document.

I downloaded the file but I can’t find it.

Once the file is downloaded it is saved in your “downloads” folder unless you have set your browser settings to save elsewhere. Some browsers will also ask you where you want to save (you can set yours to ask you each time you download something).

How do I print on one page?

The best way to print is to download the printable to your PC and to print from there. When you print directly, it often does not fit on one page.

If you are printing an image file:

Print on one page
Printer settings

How to print

Click on “fit picture to frame”. Don’t forget to select US letter or A4.

If you are printing a PDF file:

Adobe settings

How to print on one page

Click on “fit” or “shrink oversized pages” or select “custom scale” and change the scale to fit the page. Don’t forget to select “US letter” or “A4” under “page setup”.

Please note that in order to enable you to print in high resolution our documents are very large. Some software causes the document to be printed on two pages. If this happens to you, we suggest that you use Adobe Reader (see next section) which can be downloaded free and prints the files on one page.

Your printer’s settings might look a little different depending on your printer and PC. As long as you select “fit on page” your printable will fit on one page.

I can’t open the PDF file

To open a PDF file, you will need a program that most probably is installed on your PC. This program will enable you to view PDF files from another site or source. If you don’t have a program then you can get one free.

I am trying to upload a photo but it won’t let me

You can upload photos or icons to your planner. If your photo is not uploading it might be really big or too small.

How do I remove the border or background?

In some cases, the background will be locked to prevent it from moving unintentionally. If your background is locked, go to “Lock Elements” and click on the padlock to unlock it.
