Hi Gail!

Thanks for getting in touch. To try and make our templates accessible to a broad audience we chose Word instead of Publisher, less and less people seem to have access to the software, however I am aware of some of the advantages to using Publisher.

I'm curious - what were your main reasons for using Publisher over Word? We designed our templates to be simple to use, similar in a way to what you'd be used to.

Thanks Gail, talk soon!

I do all my newsletters, calendars & flyers in Publisher, it is so easy. I hardly ever use word.

Hi Leanne, have you had success using Golden Carers calendar is word format and inserting into a publisher file as 'insert file'? I want to use their calendar but its not working transferring properly. Thanks

Hi everyone!

Here are a few ways you can incorporate calendars into Publisher:

1. Convert to JPG and insert into Publisher

- One solution is to download and use the Golden Carers Calendars as normal. When you're done, convert them to JPG.
- You can do this by taking a screenshot, or using https://convertio.co/docx-jpg/ for Word, and https://convertio.co/convert-pdf-to-jpg/ for PDFs
- Then, in Publisher, click Insert > Pictures, or drag it in
- I've attached a screenshot showing a working example of this

2. Use Built-In Publisher Calendars

- Another solution is to use the built-in calendars within Publisher
- To use these, click "Insert", then "Calendars", and select one that suits your needs
- You can also click "More Calendars" to specify what month you want to use

I hope that helps! :)
