I have a long chain of events which are all ordered by date constraints in the form of
main_event 1 takes place on a certain date
main_event 2 takes place after end of event 1 + 20 minutes
and so on
another chain of events is ordered the same way starting 6 years earlier. The first event in that chain of events is defined with the time constraint
starts before start of main_event 1 -6 years
so far so good.
My expectation now is that when I take main_event 1 and move it through the timeline that all of the events get their dates redefined based on their constraints. It works well with the subsequent events after main_event 1. But the chain of events which take place 6 years earlier just stay where they are. None of them are locked. They are nested in a parent event the duration of which is defined by the accumulated duration of the child events.
Only if I delete the absolute dates which are filled in automatically by Aeon based on the constraints does the first event of the “6 years earlier” chain of events move to its new place, dragging its subsequent events along with it nicely.
How can I define that first event in the “6 years earlier” chain of events in a way that it follows any transposition of “main_event 1” through the timeline?
