Hello here ! Love AE, and still I use paper bands to set up my character ages and events. I make a band by character, graduated with its age (by 10, 80 years is 8 marks, 25 years is 2 marks and a half). Then I arrange them to have it fit, and so I get the ages of each character at every point of the story. Would be nice to be able to do this in Aeon. Now it is already useful, it gives ages at every event, and it change if you change de event date, but it is not as easy as moving 5 or 8 graduated paper bands...

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but we do have the ability to group events by character, which will then show bands at the top of each group showing the ages of the characters. You are unable to move these bands without changing the characters birth date, which I think is what you have been doing with paper, is that correct? However if you haven't already seen this layout, then it might be helpful for you. If you click the "Group By" icon with the four horizontal bars and choose "Group by Character" then you will see how this works. Jess
