Exclude Final Year Option

Wed, 09 Sep 2020 10:43:23 GMT

Encourage a check box to exclude the final year of arbitrary eras. For example, the Hadean Era – – is conventionally listed as lasting from 4.6 billion years ago to 4 billion years ago. The resulting duration shows up in the timeline as: *Hadean Era [600000001 years]* Six-hundred million, while note EASY to recall, is somewhat easier than six-hundred million and one. What with history having so many round dates like that, especially in pre-history, it would be helpful if we could have an offset for this. Another example: Mycenaean Greece Mycenaean Greece (or the Mycenaean civilization) was the last phase of the Bronze Age in Ancient Greece, spanning the period from approximately 1600–1100 BC. To me this is always…*500* years. Many, many dates in pre-history are like that. And, kind of how I remember them: they seem to store in memory as round numbers. It would be nice to not have to mentally edit out that extra year each time. Sincerely, Flin [2020-09-08_21-15-47-647](// [2020-09-09_18-39-51-810](//

Hi Flin, Thanks for your suggestion, it isn't something we have planned to do in the near future, however we will keep it under consideration in the long term. Jess
