Hi Coronado,

I'm so thrilled with your page marker. Here's mine (Do i have to always make everything look so girly? Yes! :cloud9:)

I think I can cut/paste your photos into Flickr, and I hope you don't mind me adding it to my blog too.

No problem. I think I can message you better pics on here privately, or just post them in here later. I'll take some tonight or tomorrow.

So much fun going on here, and I learned a few tricks from Coronado and JS, thanks!

I originally planned a portrait version but figured I need horizontal space more than vertical.
Wouldn't the Circa discs gets in your way to write on the left page Coronado? JSButterfuly, do you have similar problem even though you are already using it in landscape mode?

BTW, Circa seems very popular here isn't it? I recall seeing the original Circa in Paperworld Frankfurt years ago and thought it was kind of ugly (no offense), I guess the flexibility is the attractive point.

The customization is definitely the selling point for the Circa line. I am not a huge fan of the discs in terms of aesthetics, but they don't look terrible to me.

I don't have any issue with them getting in the way when I write on either side of the page.

:ltcapd: Ugly? Not mine! :roflmho: Not offended at all Patrick. Beauty is in eye of beholder. I have no affiliation to either product - ARC or Circa. Just a happy consumer.

For me there are many advantages to a disc system for working, taking notes, and brainstorming. They are outlined in this thread. Why Arc?

The disc bound book folds back completely in half. So, the discs do not get in the way.

Back to the Chronodex -- Yes, Portrait would be very useful. (wish I had thought of that). Is there a way to fix the Saturday/Sunday? so they are portrait too?

Hi Patrick,

My prayers thoughts are with yours for your Dad and Mum. My grandmother had Parkinsons. I treasure that final look of recognition in her eyes the last time I saw her, before she passed away.

I love the Chronodex idea and would love to give it a go. My thinking is currently very linear and it looks like a great way to tickle my dormant creative side. I was wondering if you could create an A5 format (when you find the time, and if you wish to). I do like the portrait version shown above. I would use it with my Atoma disc binder.

I'm going to start full-time uni next year and I think this will be a great way to keep track of time and assignments.

Thanks for a great idea!

Agree that portrait is more natural to most.
Now I understand the characteristics of the circa disc.

Thanks Steve! As an artist, do you like a traditional linear way of diary notation or this new radial method? I would like to hear your opinion.

Thanks a lot NOS. It is not difficult to accept the fact that life will end some time soon, seeing how a person suffer is a totally different thing.
I'm gonna post Cororado's version so that you can download to try.
I do think A5 is a very good size to exploit the radial aspect of the Chronodex, it seems to have more room to allow a portrait version which is more natural to most people IMHO. What do you think?
BTW, working at retail, Xmas is the busiest time of the year and I doubt I could make it, but I'll try.

Hey there Patrick.
Maybe the changes you have in mind for the Chronodex can be introduced with the July-Dec book? I think fans of the Chronodex have already printed it and using it.

+1 for the portrait in half letter size, I don't have a Midori so I'll be resorting to the Arc system as well.

Coronado, I like the change you made with the dot grid.

Patrickng, my thoughts are with you and yours.
Also I hope you plan to continue to offer the chronodex every 6 months, it's a winner! :thumbup:

This is a lovely design. I was hoping I could get it on small sized Midori
traveller notebooks. I could always screencap it too, but I wonder how I
am going to print it onto the pages!! Man, if this layout really takes off
like the Muji notebook, it'd be lovely...

Thank you so much! I have just ordered my midori TN and now can't wait for it to be delivered! Seeing the prices of Midori's calendars I was a little shocked *LOL
So your calendar comes in very handy and I will put it in use. I am curious as to how I like them seeing how different from the ordinary system they are. But I have to admit, that from the visual point of view your calendar is wonderful.

Thank you ever so much for sharing!

You mean Kate's method right? I'm gonna make a rubber stamp like some of the Chronodex users suggested, using wine cork :)

Thanks Nicolas, I think a rubber stamp would solve your problem. TN passport size is kind of small though, the current Chronodex size is too big for it. I'm exploring proper Chronodex size.

This happens again and again, I think more people need a rubber stamp for the flexibility. Working on it Bogon!

I think this is a great idea. My prayers are with your family.

I opted to go for something similar to Kate, since I have a cute notebook that I didn't know what to use for. However, I'm more persnickety (to put it mildly), so I edited the Chronodex circle so I could cut it all pretty:

Posted Image


My notebook is about 5"x7" and I find that 2" circles work best to fit two to a page. I made a little sheet in so I can fit 15 circles to each page. For important dates, I'll print out bigger circles so they'll pop out more, since I tend to forget birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

After a couple of failed attempts on bad paper and printing the wrong other side, I have a good version on 120gsm laserjet paper in my Midori TN now! First step in finishing my remaining moleskines and moving over to the TN.

I find the design interesting and elegant but not unique. While I have no links to share with you, I've seen circulat daily planners in many formats.
My personal experience with planners and calendars points me to simplicity and immediate recognition. Perhaps with habitual use, the circle's day's density is discernible I don't see practical advantages over conventional, perhaps boring, linear time assignment systems.

I'll be watching the thread for several weeks to see how real world usage shakes out.

ONe of your site's visitors suggested a rubber stamp. That's a great idea. Has a level of funkiness that is lost in printing off rigidly formatted sheets.

Thanks Velazquez. Do you print the Chronodex core onto circular stickers? I don't quite get it how you are using it, e.g. 15 circles to each page. I am guessing you would cut the cores out one by one? Do share some of your usage photos here or on the Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/chronodex.

Thanks
