Import aeon timelines

I have been away for quite a while because, the way I used Aeon, I needed to import two or more different aeon timelines into others. (you can check previous posts). I have been waiting for this feature to come in the updates since v2 was available, thinking that it would come soon, as I thought by previous posts conversations. I was extremely shocked and disappointed when I didn't find that feature in the poll and was not able to vote for it. This is, for my purposes, the only important feature for continuing to use Aeon. CSV import won't work for me, because of associated images/links and relationships lost in the process (unless there is something I am doing wrong, any advise will be appreciated). Right now I don't really remember if copy/paste maintained the relationships... I deeply wish that the ability to import/merge timelines is still under consideration. Please let us know. (Now that I think of it, a way to sync between Aeon files would be cool, though! :-) )

Hi, We didn't include that feature in the poll because it is a known feature/requirement that we will be including at the earliest opportunity - so there was no reason to include it in a vote. The poll was targeting larger development tasks that would take significant time and aren't yet guaranteed to go ahead. Thanks, Jess

Great to know! For a moment there I was feeling hopeless :-) Sorry for the misinterpretation. I'll keep reading those "What's new in this version" with anticipation :-D

Any news on the development of this feature? I've been stuck for many months now, not using the app because my next step in workflow is to combine/import two timelines....

Hi, The ability to merge timelines is something that we are working on currently as it is needed for when we release the iPad version of the application. Therefore we are working on it concurrently with ongoing work on the iOS version. Unfortunately this means that we don't have a date available for this, but we will make it a priority over some other iOS work Jess
