I discovered aeon after working with scrivener. I started out by syncing an empty timeline to an existing scrivener project. Events apper fine on the screen, but there were lots items I didn't such as items from my scrivener research folder, person descriptions etc. I filtered them out by asssigning them to a do-not-display label I rearranged the remaining ones to arcs
I have lots of questions with I hope will be answered. It seems that Aeon timeline has a certain idea about how I set up my events en persons in scrivener.
I'ld love to see documentation about linking entities to events, i have no idea how to do that.

Hi, and thanks for trying Aeon.

When syncing with Scriv, it gave you the option of which files to sync. So if starting again in future, you can choose to ignore Research folder items etc and they won't sync.

Regardless, it is safe to delete those events from your timeline. It won't break anything. The next time you sync, it will ask if you want to create new events for those documents again. Choose "Ignore" and it won't ask again.

Regarding creating relationships etc, I suggest you take a look at the User Manual (available in the Help menu). It is a PDF document and should be pretty easy to navigate. If you read the "Overview of Concepts" and "Getting Started" sections (names may differ slightly, it is not in front of me), they should get you grounded pretty quickly.

Any extra help you require from there (eg. How to create relationships) should be easy to get to from the Table of Concepts or keyword search through the document.

Having said all that, if you have any further questions, just ask here.

Dear Matt,

I'd like to know if you're planning to make possible the relationships not between an Entity and one Event, but between two events.

I mean this event should happen if the first one was happened.

All my very best,
David

Things like grouped events, linked events, etc. are on the list of things that I will consider in future versions, but I don't have a definite plan of exactly how they will work yet.

Dear Matt,

This is a WONDERFUL thing what you say.
Linked events could be so powerful, really, to people like me (non-linear stories).

All my very best,

Matt,

Do you have some news about this?

My best.

MacDavid, since Matt has set up ScribbleCode's own official Aeon Timeline forum on

http://www.scribblecode.com/forum/index.php

I think you'd get quicker replies if you moved your questions, suggestions, comments etc. over there. I'm sure Matt must check there more frequently than here, and as another — albeit minor and very intermittent user — I think it better for the community to be unified in the official forum.

I am still checking both forums on a near-daily basis. Most tech support should roll across to the new forum, but I am happy for some of it to remain here for existing posts.

I don't have any update on this, and I won't for a while.

This is the kind of change that requires a lot of careful planning and thought, and will take some time to get right, so it won't appear in a 1.0.x update.

I am pleased to hear that Matt, and was pretty sure you would be. I too check here when I'm going through the Scrivener forum each day, but I just thought that Aeon users who've been posting here should be encouraged to migrate over to your official forum.

There seem to be users posting on the ScribbleCode forum who I haven't seen posting here and users still posting here who don't seem to be using the ScribbleCode forum. If this division were resolved, the community would become unified, rather than split between the two.
