Hi, In searching before posting about this question I found this thread: https://www.aeontimeline.com/forum/channel/#!/support/dates-and-calendars:commas-in-dates I've got the same question. "...when dealing in tens and hundreds of thousands of years in the Historical template, 130,000 BC is less prone to error than 130000...." Seems like there's a way to get commas to show up. How is it done? Sincerely, Flin

Hi Flin, There isn't a way to get commas to show up, I mentioned to the other user that you can write events such as 1.3 million, 1.2 billion etc instead of 1300000, 1200000000 however this does not take into account more precise dates if that is what you are looking for Jess

<cries> ;) :D Sounds like one of those really hard-coded system things. Am I right? Hmmm...what about Fonts? Os there a way to define the fonts used? Somehow, I think that if one could select a monospace font for the number those longer ones would be easier to read. What do you think? Sincerely, Flin

Hi Flin, Unfortunately as the layout of events is based on the length of their titles, we need to know the length of lengths, which becomes much harder when you allow the user to select different fonts. It is a problem we will continue to evaluate to see if we can come up with a better solution at some point. Jess
