Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the months around the circle, part of Designing a Calendar.
Picking up from where we left off we now have all the…days of the year arranged around the circle and we have the starting…dates of each month designated in a different color and that paragraph style…that's applied to the first day of the month will restart the numbering.…What we want to do next is add the months of the year around the circle.…And I want to first show you how I attempted this initially and it didn't…quite work.…But, it's interesting why it didn't work, I think.…So I kept that layer, it's this one here.…
Months all in one.…This is a non-printing layer, so I will need to…turn on my guide in order for us to see this.…I'll turn off the months layer. Turn back on months all in one.…And here, I attempted to put all 12 months on the same circular path.…Spacing them evenly…doesn't really work, because May only has three letters.…Whereas, September has nine letters.…And that's the reason why.…And for that reason, I ended up approaching this in a different way.…
And that's making 12 separate circles. And just moving the position of the month…
