Catholic Calendar operating instructions
For information about the full Universalis program for the Mac, which gives readings for Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours for each day, click here.
The calendar view shows you an extract from the liturgical calendar:
The page view shows you one particular page for your chosen day:
The button at the top left takes you directly to today's date after you have been viewing dates in the future or in the past.
The left and right buttons move you back and forward by one day. The numbered button in the middle switches you between the calendar view and the page view.
The calendar view lets you view and scroll through the liturgical calendar.
To move between dates, use the scroll bar at the right-hand edge of the window. You can also use the Date menu.
To move a long way in the calendar - for instance, to another month or another year - use the Date menu or click on the heading that shows the name of the month.
To view the details for a particular day, click on that day.
To move from one day to another, use the left and right arrows at the top of the window, or use the Date menu.
To go to the calendar view, click on the number between the arrows.
To make the print larger or smaller, use the View menu.
To copy the text so that you can paste it into another program, highlight it with the mouse or use Edit > Select All. Then use Edit > Copy to perform the actual copy.
To make your computer speak the text out loud, use Edit > Speech > Start Speaking. If you have highlighted some text then that is what will be spoken; otherwise the whole page will be spoken.
To print the text, copy and paste it into Pages or a suitable word processor.
The Preferences window
The command Universalis > Preferences opens the Preferences window. This lets you choose which local calendar you want Universalis to use. If your region isn't listed, you can experiment to see which other region's calendar is closest to yours.
