Dear all Chronodex users,
You've been waiting for July-December version to come out and here you go!
Scroll down to the download section and find the version you like (Hong Kong holiday, Japanese holiday, no holidays. I'm working on a Korean holiday version)
http://scription.typ...f-a-prayer.html

Do let me know if there is any error.
There is a Facebook page to share your usage experience and tip: https://www.facebook.com/chronodex

In the mean time, read about An Embryologist's Chronodex, a recent blog post about Simon Ward's adventure with Chronodex.

I have used Chronodex on and off for a while, but the differences in the Middle Eastern work week made it difficult for me. When I contacted Patric this week he generously produced an ME version where the work week starts on Sunday. The photo below was snapped with an iPhone but I will get a proper foto sometime this week.

A little update:

Here you can see the Date Free Middle East version Patrick created for me. Yeah, it's a bit of a schlep filling in dates but you can't really expect him to maintain a separate version for a handful of people. Also, it really takes 2 minutes per week to date the week's sheets.

Okay, after playing around the whole weekend I have some comments:

1. The cut lines pre printed on the pages is somewhat superfluous. My reasoning is this: You cut the sheets, then fold them, then sew them (or staple, whatever you prefer) and then at the end you have to trim the edges again to make them neat. For me it is much easier to fold the full A4 size, measure 110mm from the fold, draw one line and cut once. That way the edges are very neat.
2. I made a 2 month planner consisting of one signature (set of pages sewn together), well not sewn yet since my book binding tools will only arrive on the 18th. I had to do the imposition of the pages manually since I have no software or formula to tell me which parts of the week should be turned upside down or how weeks should be split across pages so that they appear in the correct order when flipping the pages. Adobe InDesign does NOT help with this at all. So I finally have an inkling of the effort Patrick puts into a 6 month planner. You have my sincerest appreciation, Patrick.

OK I cannot figure out why my printer is not allowing me to print the Chronodex correctly. I have looked around online and have tried all sorts of settings only to end up with a stack of messed up attempts.
I have a Canon MX860 printer and the back side of the paper does not align with the front side so when I go to fold it is not correct. Anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

Hey I agree with point 1! Following the cut line exactly will create slant edges once you fold and stapled all the pages together because there is the thickness. Great idea to somehow indicate the cut line but not having it distinct graphically. I'll see if I can have it done in the next release for 2013! The current format is probably easier to understand for most people, not perfect though.

It will be a self-inking stamp free of dates, so any notebook can be turned into a diary except that you have to mark your dates at the center of the circle. Working on it, here's a link showing how it will eventually look, sort of:

Hey sorry to come back to you late. I hope at least you have the page sequence printed correctly.
MX860 has duplex printing, It has to do with centering the document on every page when you print, I don't know if there is such option, but please only try a few pages at a time.

These might help you:

Hope this helps.

I can't decide yet, so haven't voted.

After all the years that I've used a grid calendar, this is not intuitive to me. I've had a significant number of errors entering a meeting on the wrong day. And I don't automatically SEE the event lining upat the right time of day. As I've just started using it I'm going to give it some time

Sorry to say I don't think I will be making mine again this year. I did not use it as much as I had planned, and since I am closing on a house in 2 weeks I don't see myself having the time to make another one.

I had to chuckle. I was looking at your blog and wondering when you would put up the new version about 2 hours before your post. Thank you. I'm surprised at how much I like using the Chronodex. From someone who is very linear.

Hey Ted! Just in time, just in time.
You are already radial, you just don't know it.
Do share your findings once in a while on the Chronodex facebook page.
I've just made a simple guide on the printing sequence coz many people couldn't figure out how to do it, check it out if you face such problem.
Happy Chronodexing :P

I still don't get how I can print this design on my traveller notebook, guess I can't?
But nevertheless, a lovely interpretation of the original Muji design! Great work... :thumbup:

I'm so envious of you guys! I cannot seem to resize the file to fit my paper size of choice, that of the Quo Vadis Habana A5 (6.25 inches by 9.25 inches). I need it to fit the one and only sleeve that I am using, so everything is in just one place.

I wonder if Patrick Ng would be willing to allow me permissions with the March-June 2013 file? B) ;)

Gathering people's method of notation on Chronodex, please share your experience: http://scription.typ...ease-share.html

Here's how Kate (from Studio-Sweepings: http://www.studio-sw.../chronodex.html) uses Chronodex. She printed on stickers and use only what's needed....


OMG. This is a great mod. Let me see if I can use this in the meantime while I have not yet gotten around o resizing the printing of the actual file.

So I went ahead and created a self-inking Chronodex stamp.  I then stamped every single page of my homemade Field Notes booklet, made with Rhodia DotPad paper.  I like it for the most part.  Love the design, Patrick!  Here are some pictures:

However, I didn't notice that I lost the 6am-9am time slots until after I received the stamp.  I may end up remaking this stamp, since my day does typically start earlier than 9am.  I also like the Spiraldex from Kent.  Maybe I'll use both.  Chrono to track my meetings, and spiral to track my time per project.

Fantastic stamp. I did something similar, but printed the chronodex on bagasse paper cut to size for a midori traveler's notebook passport size. Each day gets a chronodex page and a blank page for notes. I use this for work tracking, I use a separate notebook in the traveler's notebook for personal stuff. It is working for me.
