R-click on DX Builder icon in systray > choose List Objects.

Change the properties of "Template_Day" object, and that will automatically set all the other days. Change "Template_DayOfWeek" properties and that will set the others. "Calendar_Year" is the year object.

R-click on the Calendar object > choose Edit Script.

At around line 129 you should see this:

DesktopX.Object("Calendar_Year").Top = Object.Height - 33


Delete that line or set the position as desired.

You mean the date plugin (LINK)? If so, click on Configure under Additional Abilities. To set the display to "27 June 2010" follow the instructions in the configuration window and enter the the format -- dd MMMM yyyy -- into the date format field.

No download site exists that I know of. Usually other members just share it if someone asks for missing plugins.

 I was just asking if there is someone making new plugins that will be very useful.
