Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing the calendar table and cell styles, part of Designing a Calendar.
It's now time for us to turn our attention to the appearance of our calendar grid.…The way this looks is determined by the Calendar Wizard and the…styles that the Calendar Wizard applies to the text that it generates.…The good news is that it generates table styles, cell styles, and paragraph styles.…All we need to do is modify them so that we get the look that we're after.…We have one table…style, we have several cell styles and we have several paragraph styles.…
I'm going to begin with the paragraph styles.…And we have cal day, cal date, cal non-month day.…All of these are derived from this one, cal base.…So that's the one that I'm going to edit first of all.…Come to the basic character formats.…Change the typeface. I want to use a san serif type face.…I want it to be smaller. And I want it to be left aligned.…
It turns out that the base style is left aligned so…it must be that the off spring styles have changed the alignment.…We'll have to address this in a different step, but…now I am going to come to the character color.…
