Julian, here are pictures of the settings that I used for the bevel and drop shadow. I couldn't figure out how to do a screen shot with the bevel screen up so I had to take camera pictures. They are sort of rough looking.

Thanks!  I'll give that a try!

FWIW there is usually a key on a windows keyboard called print screen.  I took a photo of where mine is located.

You press the key and the screen gets copied to the clipboard as an image.  Then go to PSP and select Paste as a New Image and you have a copy in PSP.  You probably will want to crop it, resize it, and save it as a jpg.  It's really easy!

I had  a print screen key on my old keyboard.  My newer one doesn't.  I could take a screen shot through PSP, but I prefer to use  hold down the shift key, windows logo key and the letter S. I then create a border around the area I want to take a screen shot of, and it saves it in documents. The only thing it doesn't include in a screen shot is the cursor pointer.

I'm just back from picking up my Calendar print job from Staples. I'm very pleased with it. The reproduction is outstanding and the price was under $25.00.It is for Jackie and Corey for Christmas and I'm going to add a paperback copy of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency book by Alexander McCall Smith as that is how I got hooked on Botswana. Here's a photo of the calendar hanging on my wall.

Thank You Donna for getting me started with bevels!

I noticed yours have rounded edges.  How did you do that?

I had a heck of a time learning how to select the boxes to add the bevel.  I eventually figured out the boxes needed to be filled with a color in order to put a bevel on them.  I tried filling the boxes but it covered up the numbers.  I eventually made two copies of the boxes with dates.  I filled one copy with color and put the outline with dates on top so I could see both layers.  Is there an easier way?

Julian, I used the cass custom calendar script which gives you a choice of what type of box that you want. I choose a rounded square preset for the box, rasterized the vector and add a color that I chose from my calendar page. The script adds the calendar boxes and then asks you to choose a text. It then fills the boxes with your chosen text.

Whenever I watch a Masterclass or tutorial, I take note of what bevel Carole uses such as for flowers, paper etc. I then label it and save it in my bevels for future use.

Has anybody else noticed that December starts on Sunday not Saturday? 😁

Amazingly, you are the first.

For anyone who has not fixed that, and don't want the trouble of doing it, I have updated the download file so you can get a CORRECT month.

Nov/Dec were on Day 6 but the file still has Sat as Dec 1. Did you put it somewhere else?

I had replaced the zip file on the server. Just to make sure, I changed the name now and added b at the end of the filename.
