Birthdays, wrong age in VueMinder??

Post by Surre » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:39 pm

I have two friends in my calendar showing birthdays.
One is born jan 3. 1954, the other one feb. 4. 1954
Why do they come up with the same age in VueMinder when today is in between this two dates? (today is jan 9)

I have the same settings on both..
Only one of this two is 57 years old, the otherone is "only" 56 yars old until feb.4

Hi Surre, the age indicated in the calendar is the age the person will be on that date, not their current age on today's date. If you move the calendar back to 1954, you'll see the age starts at 0, and increments each year. Does that make sense?

A friend turns 50 years old this year.
I went back to September 1961 in the VueMinder, added her birthday. This is now seen every year, but not this year when she will be 50 years old. Then, I see it for next year. It jumps over one year (this year) She was 49 years old last year, jumps over this year, (the event does not appear in the calendar this year) and then, next year she turns 50?? When she is 51..
(is a dream come true, women does not have birthdays every year after they are 50, only "every other year"?? :lol: )

VueMinder Pro, 8.2.1
Windows 7, 64bit

It was not like this before ...I think..

Hi Surre, did you accidentally delete this year's occurrence, perhaps? Could you try deleting and re-creating the recurring series, and let me know if it still doesn't show a birthday for this year?

I did not delete it. I just made a new event. It did not show this year birthday.
Deleted the event, same happend.

Then I tryed to add another birthday, february 2002. Same happend. It did not show the birthday for 2011, but was back for 2012.
(2009 it showed 8 years old, 2012, it showed 9 years old)
This birthday-calendar sync to google. (I can se the birthday in google)

Hi Surre, I'm not able to duplicate this problem. However, the version I'm testing has a number of other corrections for syncing recurring events with Google Calendar, so maybe one of those corrections will fix the problem you're seeing. I'll let you know when the next version is available to download.
