Free Print Your Own Diary Inserts for 2013

Ray and I have had our gang of little people diary makers busy in the office these last few weeks assembling the full set of 2013 inserts for your pleasure.

In this post we will list all of the formats available, please refer back to the original articles for the details on each format and also to the source files if you fancy coming up with a format of your own, or just a variation on one we already have done. Anything is possible!

We will not be laying off the little people just yet.... they will have a rest during the summer and we will put them back to work again in the New Year to get them to produce the 2014 inserts.... if there is the demand of course... we have no idea how many of you are using them.

Anyway if you have any suggestions for improvements or comments about how you are using these inserts we would love to hear from you and we will pass on the comments to the little people.

  1. Quick question - are the docx files the source files or did you use some kind of database merge to create them (eg excel data merged with word template)? I want to print off the enhanced TM inserts but want to make a small change first.

    Thanks so much Steve and Ray! These are great and very useful!

    1. The original source files here: http://philofaxy.blogspot.com/p/free-diary-inserts.html have been updated so you need to download the word and excel file, change the Word file and then do the merge again.

      In this post the Docx files are the merged files and likewise so is the PDF. Ready to print.

      Hope that helps.

    2. Fantastic! Thank you Steve. Sounds like the ideal rainy day project. Shall I send you back the amended file in case anyone else wants it too?

    3. You can please. I'm always interested in feed back particularly on the design. You might notice I've tweaked the design of the Enhanced TM Week Per View insert already compared to the 2012 version, this was based on my own use of this insert over a period of a couple of months, sometimes you don't get things 100% right first time and you need to adjust things a little bit.

      I think the inserts will evolve over time, a tweak here and there.

  2. Thank you Steve and Ray!!

    I actually discovered this morning that Franklin Covey offer a free sample of 31 UNDATED days of 2PPD inserts for the Classic size. You would need to print it out and punch it yourself.
    Here is the link to the PDF:

    Also - no idea if I'm allowed to post this here - I have the Filofax Time Management weekly inserts for 2012 on sale on ebay (search for Filofax Professional).

    I see that Filofax had introduced the 2013 refills on their website, but there's nothing in the Time Management section ...?

    1. Judith, I really love your YouTube video on your A5 Adelphi! I have watched them several times and picked up some ideas from you. Thank you very much!

  4. Thank you guys for all your hard work and of course the band of little office helpers. I am using the amended TM diary for A5 and have made a few adjustments. Took me ages to do, but well worth the effort. I have changed the today to Memo, have bolded the lines in colour, and have added paint and fill in pale blue to the headings and weekends.So it is more of a bold print and light blue version. I can send a copy to anyone who would be interested in my amended version for 2012. Haven't thought about 2013 yet!! Thanks again to both of you. It is a superb diary format and the proof of the pudding is that I have not changed diary formats once this year!! Brilliant stuff!!

  5. Hi Steve -
    I am newly returning to my Filo after years away because I love its flexiblity. I do, however, really like Planner Pads format but they are too big for my A5. Do you have any plans to develop a similar one?

    Thanks - Jen

    1. Jen, you could use the A5 column layout that Steve and Ray created. If you use the doc source files you could adapt the layout to mirror the PlannerPad pages. But layout as it is now would also offer the Funnel option!

    2. Thank you for the suggestion I haven't seen that file - could you point mien the right direction?

      Many thanks again!

    3. The Vertical Week View one....

      We have avoided copying exactly existing inserts so that we don't come up against copyright issues.

      So in answer to your question I don't think we would make an exact replica of the Planner Pad, although I'm sure we could do something 'similar' !

      Steve

    4. I totally understand re the copyright. If there is a possibility though of a similar set up I am certain quite a few Filofaxes would love it too :)

  6. I bought a pocket filofax to help me structure my days about 6 months ago. It really helped me to reach closer to the goals i set for myself. A really helper on my way trying to change things.
    Then i found this blog, and the people here...... Offcourse i had to have a A5!
    I printed out the DPP , and its just great!
    I am impressed by Ray and Steve, and others who make this effort , and give it away free to use. Thank you ever so much. It is VERY useful, better then the original inserts from my point of view :)

  7. I have been struggling with my pocket-size set-up but I think the pocket TM diary may well be the solution! Gone to track down the 2012 version and try a week or so (great bonus to be able to try out and if it doesn't work, try another without massive expense!).
    Yet another brilliant thing about Philofaxy! Steve, Ray, you are stars!

  10. Steve, I love the days of the week on the to do side of the new 2013 Amended TM diary for 2013. Just one question. Would it be possible to have a version with the 5 lines as they were before in the 2012 diary?? Only this seemed just right for me personally for my number of to dos each day. Afraid I don't know how to use the 2012 original to create a 2013 version in Excel or Word.

    1. Yes I will do a '5 line' version later today

  11. Thank you ever so much for that Steve. I am just so very grateful for that. I think I have found planner Nirvanah in Ray and your TM A5 diary. The 2012 format was perfect in 5 lines and the addition of days of the week I think will be so useful.... a great tweak.Touching wood madly here.... it has been working very well for me so far.HUGEST THANK YOUS. XXXX

  12. I've now done a '5 line' version which is now available.

    Regards

  14. Dear Steve,

    Thanks for this great work. If I print out your pre compiled PDFs or DOCs everything is fine for me. But once I open the Excel Files (with Excel 2010), a few of the used formulas don't work any longer (e.g. I get #VALUE errors in column F and wrong results in column C (e.g. "100" instead of January), D ("YYYY" in every row) and E ("Dddd" in every row).

    Can you imagine anything I am doing wrong?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Best regards
    Oliver

  15. Wow! Thank you so much for providing these! I made my own planner using an A5 folder after struggling to find a diary that suits me. It's a bit clunky but it suits me. I have struggled to find some dairy refills that I like. Now I can print these out and punch them with a hole punch that matches my folder. Great!

  16. I just found this site - thank you so much! I work part time so these inserts are perfect - I've printed off a day per page format for Mon-Tue-Wed and then adapted the 2days to a page insert to only consist on Thu-Fri & Sat-Sun. It was a wee bit of work but so worth it to get an insert that perfectly suits my needs. Cheers!

  17. I had been using Time Manager for some years and then switched to FF but still can't really find the layout that suits me. I have just found this by chance and am really impressed with the opportunity to change the layout. I would like to change it so that Sunday is day 1. Looking at the spreadsheet this looks like a big job.

    1. Yes it's a fairly major task to change the files to start on Sunday, but you are welcome to download the source files and adapt them yourself.

  20. I've spent the last two days trying to print the A5 month on 2 with little success. I'm in the US and using standard US letter sized paper so the calendars keep printing full size on that page. A quarter ream of paper later and I'm tearing my hair out. Any suggestions on how I can print A5 calendar on US letter size paper? I'm trying to source A4 paper too.

  21. I'm having such problems trying to print A5 month on 2 pages on US letter size paper. Been trying for the last two days and have tweaked every way I know how. A quarter ream of paper later, I'm begging for suggestions. In the US, only have 8-1/2 x 11 paper (for now; am trying to locate A4 paper locally). Willing to entertain any ideas. Thanks. I so appreciate you making these available to all of us out here. But for us American folk, we're stymied (well, I'm stymied anyway!).
