Hi,

 

i hope this module will get some more "love" in the feature.. 

 

My problems

 

1. selection problem

I just can select a year for the timeline data. When I try to select more years it results in weird times.. 

e.g.: i select 900ad to 1000ad - it results in -2949 - -2850 ?!?!? 

 

When i click on 900 i get the results for the year 900...

 

Edit1: 

 

1a: Theres also a limit to the year 2000 ? Can I expand this?

 

2. searching

 

Cant I search for user items AND accordance data at the same time?

- also search all doesn't find my user data in timeline.. like when I search for "Martin Luther" - i added him in the timeline.

 

 

Not specific timeline problem:

german translation for all names etc. ? prb have to replace all accordance data with user data..

when i do so maybe U can use this translated data for a future language switch in this module? 

 

 

Suggestions:

I would like to see a field for user notes to the data - so i can fill in some more specific info. (e.g. exact birth date for a person etc.)

- are there any plans for the timeline / atlas module for new features etc. in the nearer future?

 

More regions: i like to have France / Germany / Switzerland regions .. World alone doesnt fit my needs for like things happened in the reformation... 

 

TY! and congrats for 20 Years - great software..

JayDee,

 

I believe it is a bug in Accordance 10.4 that is giving you the wrong dates when you make a selection - we've fixed this for 10.4.1.

 

Regarding expanding the size of the Atlas, Timeline, or improved handling of user items on the Timeline, we'll keep all of these ideas in mind, thanks!
