Re: Dates & Age Calculation - Wish list

In Reply to: Dates & Age Calculation - Wish list by Paul E. Lawrence of 11492

Paul, you could use the event find and replace - just don't replace. One by one, painfully.

Or you could print out a list of events with free date and eyeball for the ones you want.

In regard to your plea for more common sense in the age calculations, you may recall that I made that suggestion several years ago and it fell on deaf ears, apparently. Ideally, if a person died between A and B and was born on C, there could be something like "he died at between (a-c) and (b-c) years of age" - there are very many complex cases of like ilk that COULD be handled by an imaginative programmer - if they wanted to. Incorporate the "estimated" and "about" words as appropriate too. Could be a fun job.
