More icons/symbols for events with more capabilities.

When we create a new event, a small diamond icon appears next to an event as an icon or symbol. I love to see more different icons. In my case, I create a historical timeline, I prefer to use a baby icon for birth events (e.g. birth of Joan of Arc,) or an icon like a cross or something like that for a death events. Also for other events, related schematic icons can be useful and help us to find soon and easily and understand better and spot an event among lot of events when we zoom out with complex and crowded view. Another thing about icon/symbols of events is, changing size. Some events in historical timeline are important than others, so it's good idea, those events get bigger than the others. Thanks Masoud

Don't think you can change the icon, but you can change its color.

Yes Craig, I know it. but I'd like to change icons as I said on the wishlist!. It would be useful and great! Events will distinguish more easily and better.

Hi, The reason that we don't provide more choice in icons is because the ends of the diamond are used to show the start/end dates on events that have a duration. You will see when you zoom in on events that have a duration, the diamond symbol actually stretches in shape to show the date range of the event. If we allowed more symbols, they wouldn't be able to be adjusted like this in a way that makes sense, which is why there is just one standard one. Jess
