Free For All Tuesday No. 17

The last day of the month, therefore your last chance in May to ask us lots and lots of questions about Filofax.... or Flex by Filofax for that matter.

  1. hi, do yo know if there are any 18-months diary (2011-2012) insert available for filofax? Or at least academic diary (summer 2011-summer 2012)? WP2P/WPP mini would be great, but any other size will do also.

  2. Hi katka, the Filofax websites do have August 2011-July 2012 week on 2 pages diary inserts available now. I don't know about Mini but they definitely have them in the Personal size.

  3. Here is a question: The Deskfax is an interesting size - sort of half way between an A5 and an A4. Does anyone know if this conforms to any specific page sizes (for example US sizes) and if there are any other systems which fit the deskfax (for example franklin covey or day timer?)

  4. I just bought an Adelphi filofax. The clips at the top open the rings, but they don't close them back up again. I have to manually shut it by pushing the rings together. Do all Filofaxes close like this, or is there a defect with mine?

  8. Yes AY that is how they work. Don't pull the rings apart, only use the tabs to open and then squeeze the rings back together again.

    The mechanism that you can't see is a tensioned spring which flips either way. In one position if holds them open, in the other it keeps them closed.

  9. @Alison Reeves:

    I believe that the Deskfax uses B5 size paper: 176 x 250 mm. It is a standard size of paper in the ISO B range, but much less common than any of the A sizes.

    More info about ISO paper sizes here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_216

    I don't know if any other systems use it, but I doubt that the American manufacturers would, as they don't recognise ISO 216 to start with - they have their own paper sizing standards. But maybe the other European systems do?

    Hope this helps!

  10. @ juliet.lima1022 thanks for this. For some reason I figured it was originally based on an american size as it wasn't based on the usual A sizes. I didn't think of the B sizes! Oh well it was just a thought!
