Now you have a blank calendar, choose File | Print
Formatting options for blank calendar
Choose whatever options you like in Print Options
- Select the date range to print
- Hide private appointments.
Choose Define Styles, select a calendar style then Edit to see even more choices.
- Font choices for headings and appointments
- Days arrangement: Left to Right or Top to Bottom.
- Ensure any Daily Tasks or To Do list choices are off.
