Hi there!
I am using an evaluation copy of FT Personal 5.5.3
on El Capitan 10.11.2

What I would warmly welcome is the ability to search for calendar events.
But what I see is this. See attachment:

2 issues:

1)results list:
I see a lot of events with the same date in the results list. Now the dates
shows are NOT the date of the events. Is there any way the show the event
date?

2) preview pane:
I see the correct event date in the preview pane to the right (see
attachment). But here is no year shown and the notes for the calendar event
are not shown eigther. Is there any fix?

Any help welcome!
Thanks,
Peter

The performance we get depends on this flow of events - that you you categorize after a search rather than search for a given category.

The date you see in the list is the date that the document was produced at or indexed at. In your case you need to ignore that date.

This is what Apple returns when previewing that date as you would in the Finder. This request would need to be directed to Apple.

I see,

but the related ics files (if I open them with the text editor e.g.) seem
to contain all the info needed:
Year (this seems to be coded into the date)
Location
Description (which is the event notes)

I realize FT does not offer a way to show this yet. Would it be possible to
include this in a future release. I have the feeling this could be useful
for many users!

Best regards,
Paul
