Showing Post-death Age for Assigned Events

So in the RELATIONSHIP VIEW, there's a handy feature where if one assigns an event to a person BEFORE THEY'RE BORN, the age under the (O) or (P) marker is negative. Perfect. But if I go to the trouble of setting the time of someone's death in their ENTITY window, I would ALSO like to have the age signify that the age is out of the bounds of that person's life—maybe "+35y" or "35y(!)" to signify that if that person were alive, they'd be 35y. Why is this important? Because I keep assigning events to dead people… and there's no easy way to tell.

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion, we understand that in relationship view it would be useful to see if the event occurs after death and will consider looking at adding something to indicate this in the future. Jess

Just to be clear: I don't want it to trigger an error — sometimes I have ghosts in my fiction… sometimes I talk about cadavers. Having post-mortem events with time-since-death stamps would be hella useful.
