How To Print This


The ZodiacEvents Reports can be printed like any other web page. The Classic PsyPlan Planners also can be printed like any other web page, except the Pocket Planner (read on).

Tip: Try printing 2-up or booklet duplex, if your printer has such capability. Note that printing with Mozilla Browsers requires that you check "Print Background" under "Format & Options" in "Page Setup" in order to print the lines of the time grid.

The Classic PsyPlan Planners use a font face named "ZodiacJaDy" which may not be installed on your computer. No big deal - you can still read the planners just fine because when displayed without the Zodiac font, plain character mnemonic symbols are displayed. But, really, you'll want to see the astrological symbols in all their glory.

Get the ZodiacJaDy TrueType font ZODIACJD.ttf.
Linux users may need these: ZODIACJD.afm and ZODIACJD.t1a.
Depending on your browser and operating system, you may need to right-click on these links and select "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As..." to download the font to your computer. Then it may be necessary to install the font to your system.
You know you need ZodiacJaDy if these symbols look like capital letters:

Pages of the Pocket Planner are arranged in apparently chaotic manner. But really, there's logic here. Eight sheets are printed, four pages on each side, 64 pages total. The pages are arranged so that when assembled, the days of the month appear in proper sequence.

Notice the distinction between sheets and pages. Sheets refer to paper. Pages refer to planner days, two pages per day, plus one front page and one back page. Blank pages are generated for months with fewer than 31 days.

Your printer must be capable of duplex (both sides automatically) printing "4 in 1" multiple pages. Once printed, cut the sheets in half and place the bottom half beneath the top half. You may then fold and staple for a simple booklet. Or, cut in half again for loose-leaf or Wire-O® binding. This yields a booklet of 4.25" by 5.5" which can be trimmed to about 3" by 5" size.

For proper formatting, your Internet browser must be setup with specific margins. Remember to make a note of your existing setup before making changes so you'll be able to return page setup for normal printing. Using the "Page Setup" function of your browser, make header and footer empty and set left & right margins to 1.0" and top & bottom margins to 0.2". And, set "Printer Properties" to Multiple Page "4 in 1" and Duplex printing "Flip on Left Edge"

If your printer has booklet-printing capability, you can print planners in a variety of sizes. Booklet-printing is a feature of modern laser printers with duplex (both sides automatically) printing. In booklet-printing, the printer software takes full-size pages (8.5x11), reduces them to half-size printing two pages on each side of paper, and rearranges the pages so that the resulting printout can be folded and the pages magically appear in proper sequence. So, with judicious margin settings in the browser page setup, practically any size planner can be produced. Without any special margin settings, a standard 5.5x8.5 booklet can be produced. However, with the following settings you can print a standard 3.75x6.75 booklet (one of the Day-Runner/Day-Timer sizes). Of course, the paper must be trimmed to the desired size and punched for loose-leaf or Wire-O binding.

Remember to make a note of your existing setup before making changes so you'll be able to return page setup for normal printing. Using the "Page Setup" function of your browser, make header and footer empty and set left & right margins to 1.5" and top & bottom margins to 0.4". And, set "Printer Properties" to "Booklet Printing" with "Flip on Left Edge".

If you're going to trim the top and bottom margins of the pages, then you can keep the header and footer entries.
