This is not a beginner software! It's not even for advanced users. Calendar Commander is easy to download and install but that's where it ends. From that point on I was totally lost and I understand scripting, which is what the author uses here to create calendars. It looks simple but when you try to do something you have no idea how to do it.

The mathematical principles at work here are not explained in the help file, and for that matter, the only thing the help file does is act as a glossary for the menu items. There's no tutorial or tour of the software either built-in or from the web site. Unless you wrote the program or have a tutor to assist you, you'll be totally lost.

It looks like there's a lot of potential here for a great program but it needs a serious makeover. It reads like the perfect program for crafters, home and professional use, but it doesn't play like it.
