Multiple calendars in a single work of fiction?

The whole reason I downloaded this program is because I am writing a lengthy work of science fiction that requires me to sync events with two separate calendars in use on two different planets. Is there any way to use Aeon Timeline 2 for this, or should I be looking for different software?

Hi, Unfortunately this functionality is not available at the moment. We did recently do a survey of our users to see what new features they would like implemented, and since this was lower down on the list, it will be unlikely to be added soon. However we still think it is a good idea and something to consider adding in the future. Jess

I would like to +1 the request for multiple calendars in a single project - I have a story spanning several worlds and various different civilisations, so multiple calendars would be amazingly handy.

Allow me to put in a request for multiple calendars in non-fiction works, specifically historical, even on earth where the Gregorian Calendar just doesn't cut it for everyone in all times, i.e., the Jews and Muslims have their own calendars, and they are hardly the only ones. There was even the era when the West used the Julian Calendar and it is useful to make calculations between the two on this basis. I, for one, would appreciate your bumping this ability up on the priority list. Thanks!

This would be a great feature for me, too, for several reasons. A workaround to sync the same events to two calendars with different setups?

I would love the ability to have multiple time zones, and or multiple calendars. There are tons of fiction writers out there that want this feature. Any idea how long before it makes it to the top of the list?
