1. The date boxes on the calendar are small. I can only use Font 8 or 9. How do I increase the box size?

2. After I type the information I want on the date, if I have other dates requiring the same information, how do I get that on the other dates without opening another text box. I was told to double click on the new date however, that brings up the Edit box in the right frame and I have to close it in order to be able to type anything (even click on the Text) to get a text box. This is so confusing. What is the simplest method of typing the same material on different dates.

3. Also, I upload this calendar to our website however, the information is sketchy as if the pixels are too large or small, but its hardly readable. What is the remedy for that?

I copy the text box (the object, not just words in the text box), then paste, paste, paste. This adds multiple text boxes with identical formatting. I can then position each new box on a different date and edit the words.

Not sure if you meant you couldn't use a bigger font because you had to fit a lot of words in the space of a "date cell". Unfortunately, the date cells will always be a fixed size within a one month calendar. Perhaps use the blank area after the last date to type in more info.

Pixel dimensions are critical when displaying an image on a webpage. Assuming you created a JPG version of your calendar, which export image size did you use? Could you provide the link to the webpage so I can see how your calendar displays?

For example, does this JPG created with PM8, look clear enough on this web page?

On the subject of website calendars, I highly recommend the free Google calendar. I use it for my church's website. You have all the room you want to describe your events which are revealed when a reader clicks on an event. As well, this calendar is TEXT, not a JPG. Text is always clear and sharp no matter how close you zoom in.

For example:
