When you design a calendar ("Calendar Collection" in Calendar Creator), you are not designing it around a specific year or other defined time period. Calendar Creator is a continuous calendar, and you specify the time constraints at the point when you print a calendar. You may design different "Views" that correspond to the way you want to display or view your calendar. It's only when you go to print that you specify the dates that will appear on paper.
For example, you may have chosen or designed a simple Month view. You may want to print a calendar for August of this year. The easiest way is to advance to August in the calendar, then choose Print. When you print, you'll see that on the lower right of the print window that there is a time range area. You choose the start date and the end date. Alternatively, you can use time periods. You will see that as you advance the periods number, the End Date will advance by the number of intervals defined by the calendar view. If you're looking at a month calendar, the End Date will advance by a month. If you are using a three-week view, the End Date will advance by three weeks. You can change either date independently. You don't have to have either date in the screen display you had been viewing, but can choose the range right from the print dialogue. The printed calendar will have the layout of the view you had on screen (month, three-week, etc.).
As for using the forums: The Encore Forums are divided into categories for different types of software. When you enter all forums, you'll see Calendar Creator is a subforum under Productivity software. When you click Calendar Creator, you will see that there are four choices of categories, based on the type of question you have (printing, export, general functionality). Once you're in one of those categories, at the upper left, above the column header, there is a button for New Post. When you click that, you'll see that the box where you can enter a subject for the question and then the message is the text of the text of your question.
