Midori-compatible diary to download and print

You may remember the teaser post that featured my DIY Midori Traveler's Notebook diary

I've developed the layout a little and am today offering it for download. The diary contains the end of 2012 and the first half of 2013. I shall make available further files for the second half of the year in due course.

Each week view looks like this:

I thought you might like a choice of accent colour, so I am providing a range of five different ones. You can choose from these:

Either way, the file prints double-sided on A4 paper in booklet mode. In all, you'll print sixteen sheets, which you can then bind into a cover and trim. This post will show you how.

Download the file in your chosen colour here:   Blue   Red   Orange   Green   Purple

I really want to print this out Ray but have never printed in booklet mode before, is it easy to do? Is there any specifics I put the paper into the printer?

Ray Blake said...

If you have a duplex printer you don't need to do anything special. Give it a go.

Ray Blake said...

If it doesn't work out for you I'll make and send you one.

When do you think the complete and "Only 2013" version will be available? THANKS! This is great! (again, for some more inspiration, here are my home made ones:

Juan, I'll be building the diary for the rest of 2013 early in the new year with the same colour choices. I like your DIY covers.

Juan Gabriel said...

Great! I am looking forward to using them!

This is amazing!
I don't need one for 2013 as I got myself a pocket size moleskine for the diary, but I use a Mindori for other notes/lists.

Colours - very nice of you to provide different colour options - I bet lots of ppl (including me) would like a PINK option :)

Ray Blake said...

I'll bear that in mind for next time. It's easy to produce these in any colour you want using 'find and replace' in Word. It takes seconds and this link will show you how.

I just posted a video in which I mention your generous offering! SEE

I love the video, Juan.

Hello Ray
I am French, and there are things I don't understand.
When I download the document, I have beautiful A4 diary pages. So too big for my Midori notebook.
What does duplex mean ?
I can print on the two sides, but then I have to lift the pages upwards to get to the next date and not sideways.
Sorry, I am not very clever with these things.
How to I make the pages smaller ? I I say print two pages on one, the days are two big and do not fit.
Can you explain in simple words ?
Thank you so much.

Hi. You have to print in 'booklet mode'. This will print 4 pages on each sheet of paper. Not all printers allow you to use this facility. If your printer does not offer booklet mode, you can download a piece of software called 'FinePrint' which will do the job for you.

Marie-Adélaïde Bourbon said...

Hello Ray, thank you so much for your answer and sorry for being so late in thanking you (holidays !!!)
I never managed to print out, for some reasons mu stupid French printers don't work either at home or from the office, nevertheless you have done an amazing job !
