06 To change the format from a multiple-column table to a single-column table, use the Type tool to select the table. In the Table menu choose ‘Convert table to text’, then open the Column Separator drop-down menu, select Paragraph and hit OK. The text now appears as a long list. Turn on your hidden characters (Cmd/Ctrl+Opt/Alt+I), and delete the unwanted paragraphs left behind by the empty fields of the table and the original days of the week. Leave an extra paragraph below the bottom row of copy.
07 Now you need to convert the text back to a single-column table. First align the text frame to the width of two columns. Select all the copy and in the Table menu choose ‘Convert text to table’. Change the Table Style drop-down menu to New Table Style, and from the new panel select Table Setup. Change the borders and table spacing to 0 and click OK.
08 Your table should appear as a long list with strokes on the horizontal lines of the cells. The extra paragraph created in step 06 supplies the bottom stroke. Open the Table panel (Window>Type & Tables) and, with just the dates selected, adjust the height measurement to 10mm and select Exactly from the drop-down menu.
09 Repeat the process from step 04 to all the pages of the calendar, applying the table style that you previously set up. I decided to create a cell style to apply to the weekends, to highlight them from the rest of the dates. In the Cell Styles panel select New Cell Style from the drop-down menu. Name your style, and in the Stroke and Fills menu option select a colour from the dropdown menu. Lastly, choose a tint percentage and click OK.
10 Apply the style by selecting the weekend days from the calendar and choosing the style from the Cell Styles panel. Once you are happy with how the calendar dates are working, you can start adding images to your calendar.
