Any way to add a memo per scenario?

Post by Ptarmigan » Thu Jan 03, 2019 12:13 pm

I'd like to add an explanatory memo to each scenario, so that I can see at a glance what the purpose of each scenario was when I created it.

Is there such a facility? (I can only find memo fields for the additional inputs, and if printing a result.)

Thanks for this very helpful tool.

Unfortunately the scenarios don't support a memo field. It's a good idea and I'll make a note to look at adding that if I'm in that area of the code.

In the mean time, you can put a lot of detail in the scenario name. Having a name with over 40 characters and spaces is allowed.

One of the example scenarios in the example file is called "Base w/10 years of LTC expenses starting at age 75." In the scenario dropdown it gets truncated to at around 25 characters but you can see the whole name in the manage scenarios window.

Thanks for the quick response.

One other thing I note about the standalone program. Under the Help menu, the link for Web support leads to a 404 error with this URL http://www.flexibleretirementplanner.com/phpBB3

Thanks for the heads up on this. The redirect for that URL wasn't working correctly.

It should work now.
