Wrong day of the week in the near future

Wed, 27 Jun 2018 10:35:57 GMT

Hi, My novel takes place in the near future. To keep track of weekdays I have chosen 2023 in the calendar. The problem is that AT2 says that June 8, 2023 is a Friday, while other calendars think it's a Thursday. Why? Originally all events were placed in 2018, but I used Timeline -> Shift events by ... to move them first five years and then some days, so Saturday and Sunday is still a weekend (Aeon time). How can I correct the calendar to match other calendars?

Hi, I have looked at our default calendar (for example what comes with the Fiction template). It is giving Jun 8 2023 is a Thursday. Have you reordered the days of the week in the custom calendar at all? We have an issue that we are in the processing of fixing, where when you reorder the days of the week, the "first day of final era" option, which should be set to Monday for the default calendar, does not get set correctly if Monday is moved. This will change the days of the week to be incorrect. At the moment, when you are reordering the days of the week, at the end you just need to go into the Monday option and select "first day of final era". Then the weekdays will be correct. If you send your current timeline to we should be able to fix this for you and send it back to you. We will have a fix for this in the next update, so that if people wish to reorder the days of the week then this setting will remain with the "Monday" option unless they specifically change it. Jess
