PrintableCal Options

PrintableCal provides the ability to customize the item template used for events and tasks in generated calendars, create or modify category colors, connect to the internet through a proxy server, and modify how events and tasks are color-coded when imported from various data sources. These settings can be accessed by clicking the Options button on the PrintableCal tab of the ribbon menu in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
