Almanac 2000 is now officially available!

The most important aspect of the new version of Almanac, is obviously the collection of new features. With that in mind, let's dive right in:

To create the text that describe the event, RTF (Rich Text Format) can now be used. This will allow users to now use Bold, Italic and Underlined text. It is also possible to use different fonts and font sizes in the same event, to make some piece of text accentuated, for example.

The position, font, size and style (bold, italic etc.) of the day number can now be adjusted. Die numbers have nine different positions inside the cell where they can be positioned. We have also included a function to prevent event text from being printed over the day number, if you do not want the numbers to look like watermarks.

The default sort order of events can be changed, by placing some events at either the top or bottom of the list. The events that are not adjusted will still use the old sort order. A new type of rule is introduced, that can create events between two given dates. These events behave the in same way as events that were created with rules in Almanac 98.

The size and layout of the calendar on the page can be adjusted. This is to allow users to create differently sized calendars, as well as to prevent some printers from not printing the edge of calendars.

The fonts, size, style and colours of different elements, like the title and day names, can be changed.

There is the option to add comments to every month of the calendar. They can be printed at the bottom of the page for every month.

The width of every day column can be adjusted. This is to accommodate the days where there is more information that should fit into the cell.

The help function of Almanac 2000 now includes an online tutorial, that will help users discover the features easier and to get going quicker.

To accommodate the type of user profile of bigger organisations, Almanac 2000 uses a different licensing scheme. There are five (5) user licenses included with a copy of Almanac.

This section contains questions and answers about Almanac 2000. As our user count grows and more people start using Almanac 2000, this section will grow as well.

How can I move a calendar created on one machine to another machine?
In the folder where Almanac 2000 was installed (normally 'x:\program files\almanac 2000\') you will find a file called 'Almanac2000.mdb'. The Microsoft Access database file contains all the calendars created on this machine. By copying the file, to the same location, on the other machine, all the calenders will then be available there. Remember to make a backup copy of the file on the destination machine before you copy the file, otherwise all the calendars created there will be lost.

If I want to install more than one copy of Almanac 2000, will I need more than one registration key?
A unique registration key is required for each installation of Almanac 2000, which effectively means that you will have to register each installed version seperately. If you are installing them all at once, you can save time by sending us all the green registration numbers in one e-mail or fax.

(To ask a question about Almanac 2000, that does not appear in the list, please send us an e-mail ( message)
