Fan in action

Hi

when I add an event in the calendar the drop down list takes me to 1915. Can this be the current year just like start date works?

Thanks

I agree. First full year of WW1. Depressing.

Ok my last post was kidding around, but I think you are saying that when you select the end date, the list of years is in year order, starting from 1915. The start date is already defaulting to the current date.

I don't see a big problem. You can press page down or press the end key or use the mouse wheel to get through the year list quickly. And the calendar button defaults to the current date when you click it.

Probably it would be better for us to reverse the year older, but v10 will completely replace the date widget with an HTML5 date selector anyway.
