Children Show Their Ages

Thu, 16 Jul 2020 14:31:07 GMT

If I created a Parent Event like Romantic Literature 1800 ~ 1890 And then added as Children Don Juan - 1819 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - 1834 The Scarlet Letter - 1850 Is there any place within the interface that it could show the age of the Child relative to the Parent? Either in the Inspector, or elsewhere? Here's my thinking, for the example above, just 90 years and conveniently starting at 1800, clearly it is easy to see the ages of each Child Event relative to the Parent. I'm working with really long timelines of Ancient History and it would be nice to see "Oh! 3717 BC ~ 2439 BC that's 1,278 years!" A calculation I could never do in my head going backwards. :D BUT...if I could REGULARLY see it it WOULD sink into my head as "Oh! 1200 years from A to B." Is there any way to see the ages of a Child Event relative to its own Parent? Sincerely, Flin

Hi Flin, At the moment there is no way to easily display this information without measuring it manually (hold down Alt+Shift while you drag one event to another. This will display the distance between them). We do plan in the future to add functionality to make this easier. Jess
