Do not show year

I'm working on a story that plays over the course of several weeks without crossing the New Year line. I don't want to use relative dates because I want to see that this is June and it is a Friday. But the exact year is irrelevant. I don't need to see it. Is it possible not to display the year?

Hi, Unfortunately no, there is no way to not display the year on the timeline if you want to use the normal date system (ie. not relative dates) Jess

Adding here b/c it's a similar issue: in the original Aeon Timeline, I could enter something manually to edit how dates were displayed. I don't need the year, either, and having time all the way out to the seconds REALLY clutters the visual. As in, things overlap. Why can't I still do an "other" and enter %a %d like I did before?

Hi, In Aeon Timeline 2 we made the decision to have date ranges collapse (eg. instead of 3/3/1987 13:00 - 3/3/1987 14:00 in version 2 it displays 3/3/1987 13:00 - 14:00) Due to this we had to limit the number of formats that we could display, which is why we no longer provide an "other" format. Jess
