Creating a 2014 Calendar in Legacy:
There are two ways to create a calendar in Legacy - you can create a nice wall calendar with pictures and colors or a basic calendar list. For both, click on the Reports icon, select the Books/Other tab.
Both calendars have some of the same options of which individuals to choose (only living, all individuals, only dead, tagged options), birthdays and/or anniversaries (including skipping divorced couples) and ages and/or year and/or location of birth and/or anniversary) and which months to include
To create the wall calendar, select Calendar Creator. There are many options for customizing your calendar. You can select fonts, colors and include pictures and captions on each page and print selected months. The calendar can be saved as a PDF file and taken to a print shop for a nice print job on glossy paper and binding. For full details on creating your calendar, click on the "Help" button on the right of the Calendar Creator window.
The Calendar List Report is a more basic perpetual-type calendar (although it does show a year) with pretty much the same options for who and what to include. You can change fonts but you don't have the options for colors and pictures.
