Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Finishing touches, part of Designing a Calendar.
And now for our finishing touches.…The first of these is, I want to add a column to…the left of the month, which will number the weeks of the year.…And here's a nice way that we can do that.…I'm going to create myself a text frame…like so, and I'm just going to press return.…I'll turn on my hidden characters, so we can see my paragraph marks and…now, I'm going to create a paragraph style.…But I'm going to start out, by applying the cal date…style to that, and then I'm going to modify that.…
I'm going to modify it, by making it an auto numbered style.…So I'll come to my autonumbering option and click on that.…The list type will be numbers and I just want a number,…without a period or a tab after it, so I'll click okay to that.…And make that a new paragraph style, which I will call Numbers…and then press my return, until I get…a list of 53 numbers, we need 53 because the…first and the last weeks of the year, are incomplete.…
Now I'm…going to select all of that and convert that, to a table.…I need to convert it to a table, so I can then copy and paste this into my column.…
