Free Day-Per-Page and Day-On-Two-Pages diary pages for the Filofax Personal

Before Steve and I began our project to design a full range of diary pages, I created a couple of A5 layouts for Day-On-Two-Pages and Day-Per-Page diaries and it's these - adapted for the Filofax Personal - that we are releasing today.

First up is the Day-On-Two-Pages:

Then we also have Day-Per-Page:

1. Pre-prepared 2012 sets

Choose between the Day-On-Two-Pages Word file, the Day-On-Two-Pages PDF file, the Day-Per-Page Word file and the Day-Per-Page PDF file.

Print this double-sided. If you have a duplex printer, set it to flip on the short edge. If you don't then you'll have to print odd-numbered pages and then refeed to print the even-numbered pages on the reverse. You might have to experiment to find out how to refeed the paper.

On one side of each sheet you'll find crop marks. Use a craft knife and a steel ruler to release the Personal pages and punch them. The templates are set up with mirrored gutters to accommodate the holes.


Source files

You can also roll your own using our source files. The Day-On-Two-Pages version uses this Word file as the base document and this Excel file as the data source. The Day-Per-page version uses this Word file as the base document and this Excel file as the data source.

If you want to know how to go about using the source files, this post will help you.

Hi Ray. Your diary inserts are really great, thanks for sharing them with us all!

I was wondering if you had any plans to do a personal, lined, week on two pages with equal space for all seven days and a 'Things to do this week' box before Monday? I'm planning to move up to the personal size and this would be a great option for me. No worries if not, I'm sure I'll find an alternative to suffice!

Thanks for all your hard work!

Lucy, have you seen Filofax's cotton cream week to view? It's pretty much what you're describing.

LucyLastic said...

Hi Ray

Yes I have, thanks. I currently use that in my Pocket but have decided to move up to Personal. This will be my diary of choice; I just wish it was lined! Never mind.

I might have a go at using one of your other ones, time management was it? I can put a jot pad page in every week for things to do that week I suppose. Time to play about with my new Filofax that arrived today! What fun! And no - I don't get out much.

Ooo, nice! I have been waiting for these. Thanks so much! Now I just have to figure out the printing...

Ray Blake said...

Let me know if you run into trouble and I'll try and help.

kanalt said...

Thanks, I will.

hi Ray!
I thought I saw that same day-per-page in personal but can't find it. I can't find it on Philofaxy nor here. Maybe I just missed it. Would you show me were is the link?
My other question is, I don't understand how to use the source files. If I want a day-per-page without notes just the times breaking down in 1/2 hours from 7a till 11p, should I manually just merge the rows or learning how to use those source files would actually make my life easier?

Ray Blake said...

This is personal size, but I'm guessing you mean the version you can print onto personal size paper rather than cutting out personal pages from A4 sheets, yes? If so, what you need is here: http://mylifeallinoneplace.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/2012-page-per-day-for-filofax-personal.html

Assuming you don't want to edit the table 365 times, you should definitely just edit the base file and run a merge. Have you ever used Word's mailmerge facility before?

Lime Tree said...

oh, yeah, that's what I meant, printing straight into the personal size pages. Thanks for the link, but I was hoping for that same day-per-page with the notes at the boom. I would delete those rows and extend the hours to the end of the page. I just want to try it for a few weeks - we are entering the fourth month of the year and I STILL hadn't found a good set-up for me. :-/

And no, I have never used that mailmerge thingy. I read your tutorial somewhere but seem complicated for me. I need to try again. Do I edit the "base file" on excel?

Ray Blake said...

The main amendment would be to the base Word file. How about if I make you a set for April? Email me (ray DOT blake AT gmail DOT com).

That is exactly what I need my pages to be like - no notes but the times running across the whole page and from 7 am to as late as will fit on the page. Also would like that in A5 as I am thinking of printing on A5 to put in my personal but punched along the short top side and folding so I have more room and putting the week pages between weekly sheets so I can have an overview with daily pages in the middle.

SazD said...

Ok I have been playing with the layout to make a week per view with a notes section before Monday then have Tuesday and Wednesday on page 1. On page 2 I have Thursday, Friday and have split the remaining space on between Saturday and Sunday.

All was going well until I tried to fix the dates in the boxes and got VERY confused looking at the Excel sheet to work out what tags I should put where! What is all the different WBDate, WADate and Date bit is all about? The A5 week on 2 pages TM view was so much easier to work out! How do I work out which tag goes where???

Ray Blake said...

It might help if I tell you that WB is short for Week Before and WA for Week After. If you study where the fields are in the original version, that should clarify the necessary page order for you.

SazD said...

OK I have tried working round that but I think its because I now have Monday to Friday spread across 2 pages not one and it doesn't like me perhaps...

SazD said...

I fixed it! had to remove all the links properly and re-link! Also needed to put in some extra code to force the date into UK order not USA order!

Got it all working and have printed some off :)

Think I need to get myself either a new blade for my trimmer or a better trimmer as its made the edges go funny but I at least now have some personalised, lined, week to view pages all nicely laid out and ready for use! Thanks for the source files that enabled me to do this!

Ray Blake said...

No problem. Fun, isn't it?

I am such a geek so fun yes but also very addictive!!! :D

I also printed out some DPP ones (I again customised your DPP ones slightly here as well!) at work today! Thought I would make good use of my PPA time (preperation, planning and assessment) - and I did! I prepared the files and printed my planning materials, I then assessed the results and I thought they were great! Shame it was only on white paper but still! :D
