Is it possible to connect two and more events manually?

Hi, I create historical events. I need to connect two or more events manually, they're not parents and child relationship, just they're related to each other. For example, 4 months ago an event happens somewhere and news published about the event was a lie, then today the truth discovered about that. I create two events (the day the false news published by media and the second one, is the day that truth appeared for everyone). I need to connect both manually by line to see both or more events at a glance but didn't find any option for this. I hope the next version of Aeon Timeline will back with more options and abilities about creating historical timelines that are popular among many people. Thank you!

Hi, In the current version of Aeon Timeline you can relate events to one another using dependencies. If you make events dependent on one another, then if you move one event, the other one moves aswell. A line is drawn on the timeline view connecting to the two events. It isn't exactly what you are looking for, as it sounds like in your situation the dates are not dependent on one another, but if they are fixed dates that won't move anymore anyway, you still might be able to use this functionality. You can read more about it here: https://help.aeontimeline.com/article/61-dependencies In the next version we plan to introduce the ability to have relationships between two events (similar to how you can currently have relationships between events and entities), however these would not be displayed by lines on the timeline. We also plan to improve dependencies so that you can have events dependent on one another by more than just dates. Jess

Hi Jess, Thank you for the good news that we'll see in the next version, but I'd like to see timelines templates for creating historical events with better, stronger features like more colors, symbols, and more things! connecting by customized lines as I wished would be great for historical timelines. I like a thing similar to Microsoft Encarta's timeline.
