Just don't set the end date?
It is my understanding that you cannot
It is my understanding that you cannot create an event without an end date.
Okay, my mistake. Just set the end date the same as the start date (or set the duration to 0) and it should do what you want.
Hi, At the moment there is no way to have an end date as "present" so that the event automatically extends, however it is something we are looking to include in a future release. Jess
Thank you, Jess! Yes, that would be a most useful facility…my timeline has dozens of people who are not dead yet, and there is no meaningful way to indicate they are still living, unless I periodically update the end date associated with them. If you had something like “current date” as an option for the start and the stop date, this would open all sorts of possibilities.
This is right at the top of my wish list for Aeon as I use it for genealogy so it is very important to have this facility. At the moment I set an end dat of 120 years after the start date/birth date but it is not the best solution.
