We often get requests for new inserts from readers, some are easier to create than others. We do not offer a custom service for one offs any more, it takes too much time and effort to do.

However, occasionally a request arrives in our in-box were we can see the merit of the insert that has been requested and it seems worthwhile spending the time on because we feel that others might like the sort of layout suggested.

This request was one such that I was able to create quite quickly. It is basically an adaption of one of our existing layouts. It simplifies the existing Vertical Week View layout by quite a bit so it was fairly easy to create.

The complicated part is in the top of the pages, so that was left as it was and the adaption is in the rest of the page, taking out the lines and leaving three simple plain boxes for Morning, Afternoon, and Evening, no lines to restrict how big or small you write things in those boxes.

No shading has been applied, you can do that yourself if you wish by adapting the file from the source files.

You can download finished versions for this year from our diary inserts page

The source files are also available you will need both the Word file and the Excel File.

For details on printing these files please see this previous post on Printing Diary Inserts.


  1. Thank you! I've been looking for a new vertical layout for my A5, and I haven't cared for the regular Filofax paper. This will be perfect. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for creating this Steve! I've become a fan of the vertical layout so this is perfect!!!

  3. Thank you! The Excel file is giving a 404 error though?

    1. All the Excel files are the same. Just edit Cell A2 to the year you wish it to start and then save it and it will work.
