Calculation of years of an annual event 2 Years, 9 Months ago  
Hi,

first of all: I love this software!

If I save an event with category e.g. birthday and if it's a reoccuring event, Rainlendar shows the number of years which have passed since the first year.

This is great, but would also be useful for other categories. E.g., I have an own category like "day of death" or even unnamed categories, where the number of passed years is of interest.

Maybe you can make "calculate number of passed events" as a per event option, which the user can choose if event is re-occuring.

TIA
Michael

If you add the text "[years]" to the event's summary Rainlendar will replace it with the number of years from the start date. Making it an option for the categories could be useful too. I'll think about it.

Great, thanks. It works. Only advantage is, "/years" is ugly if you have the summary in the mouse over popups (which is the default).

Does not work? 2 Years, 9 Months ago  
OK, I see it's [years] and it is documented in the help file. But, it does not work. I have a whole day event for 2008-10-10 and the Summary is
Blahblah ([years].)

In the mouseover popup it says "Blahblah (0.)"

I'm using the latest beta.

EDIT: I have to use [years=yyyymmdd] with yyyymmdd being the exact same date as the event.

Try making a yearly recurring event. The [year] calculates the number of years from the first instance of the event.
