[BUG or FEATURE] Yearly Repeated Events Increment Number In Brackets

Post by Nurgotora »

Essential Pim 11.8
Windows 10

Either this is a bug - or a feature: But if it is the latter, I'd like to know where to enable/disable it - because it does not effect all yearly repeated events. I have a lot with the birthday in brackets that are not incremented, but a few - like this one - are.

The text is mine. If I change it to "Geb. Tante Trudel (#1234)" it stops incrementing.

As usual, I've a cleaned epim database with only this event in it.

There's no such feature in EPIM. These events must have been imported into EPIM through a sync from another service or device.

No, they were not. They were created in EPIM.

And it turns out to be a feature of EPIM- but of the Android version, as I just found out:

Create a never ending repeating yearly whole day event in EPIM Android, whose text contains a number in round brackets, like "Geb. Somebody (1966)"
The entries in the following years will have the number in the bracket incremented by 1 each year. Any number will do "(1)" as well as "(23)", but not "(a12)". Please make it stop, or at least give an option to turn that off.

That's interesting. I can confirm that this is happening in AEPIM. We will make the necessary adjustments in the next AEPIM update. As a workaround for now, you can replace the round brackets "()" with the square ones "[]" to prevent the year increment from occurring.
