Trouble with Era Names

Tue, 03 Jul 2018 00:50:30 GMT

I'm using the fantasy timeline setting to try and get all my notes on my DnD setting into one place. Time in this setting is divided into thousand-year eras, named numerically (so First Era, Second Era, Third Era, and so on). For the abbreviated names, i used 1e, 2e, 3e, and so on. The problem is that whenever I try to add an event in an era greater than 10, the date corrects to ten less than I want (so 11e becomes 1e, 15e becomes 5e, and so on). I feel like this probably has something to do with how the program interprets user-entered values, but I was wondering if there's any way to fix this without a) dragging and dropping every event from 11e onward manually, or b) scrapping all the events I've written out and starting over. Any ideas?

Hi, Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the custom calendars. There does look like there might be an issue with how the program is interpreting that particular era name, so we will look into this issue. In the meantime, if you send your timeline file to us at we would be able to rename the eras to something that should work for you without you having to get rid of all your events and starting a new timeline.
