I love my Filofax personal/compact organizer - it's my wallet, my calendar, and my address book. But this means it's limited in the number of refill pages that will fit, so I use the month on 2 pages view calendar. The problem is that the new 2019 calendar refill is far less functional than the 2018 version.
The 2018 style had a tab for each month, which made it easier to locate the month I wanted. It also had a 2.5 inch line for each day of the month. The line-per-month wasn't ideal, as the days had to be listed vertically down each page rather than across the two pages. But it was easier to list appointments on the 2018's lines for day vs. in the 2019's tiny boxes for each day. Plus, the 2018 version had lines at the bottom for extra notes. These lines were in two 1.5 inch-long columns on each page. But the space between the 2 columns was so small that they were effectively single 3-inch columns on each page, which was even more functional.
The new 2019 calendar refill has boxes for each day of the month that are laid out horizontally across the two pages and the first week of the next month are included. I do like this configuration except that it's difficult to enter appointments in such small boxes (approximately .75 in x .75 in). Plus, the 2019 version's microscopic .5 inch lines down the left side of the left page for extra notes are not functional in any way.
The bottom line is that the 2019 version could have been made far more functional if: 1) it still had month tabs, 2) the bottom row for the first week of the next month was omitted, and 3) the extra note lines were moved back to the bottom of the 2 pages. Items 2) and 3) would have allowed the boxes for the individual days to be widened a tiny bit, which would have made a huge difference.

2019 refill doesn't have tabs and there's less room to write appointments and notes2018年12月4日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Most practical format for me with the little boxes for each day2019年10月12日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This one is hard to find in the stores so I always order it online. I use the new narrower Filofax version as it is easier to carry around, so the monthly pages work best - plus it's just a lot easier to keep an overview of upcoming commitments this way. This version gives you a little box for each day and for me, that fits better for filling in the necessary information. The other versions have a long narrow line...
Perfect to keeping track of upcoming monthly appointment2018年11月4日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This monthly refill will go into my Filofax personal size organizer along with the 2019 weekly calendar I also ordered. The quality of the Filofax brand is excellent.
