Suggestion 1: Defaults for new scenes. 

When I'm using the Chronological view, and I click the "Add Scene" button on one of the existing scenes, shouldn't it default to creating the next scene in the same chapter?  At the moment, I have to scroll through all the chapters to find the one I'm currently working on. 

Suggestion 2: Relative Dates

The Relative Date should have some more dropdowns.  In particular, I'd like to choose between "days after" and "hours after", so that I can set something to be 3 hours after something else.  It might also be nice to have a "before" dropdown. 

Suggestion 3: I've set a scene to occur 3 days after the previous scene.  It doesn't seem to be showing up in the chronological view, although it shows up in the list of scenes in the tree, and it's in the right part.  Is this correct?  A bug?

Ignore suggestion three.  Replace it instead with a suggestion that, when adding a new scene and choosing a relative date, the scene it should be relative to by default should be the one on whose Add Scene button I clicked.

Don't ignore suggestion 3.  Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.  If I manage to make it reproducible every time, I'll let you know.

I validate the sugestion 1

I create un new tticket for suggestion 2, but it is linked with a previous suggestion (see ticket 21, 2 and 5).

What do you think, for suggestion 2, about these formats?
* +02/00/0000 (after 2 days)
* +00:00:05 (after 5 minutes)
* -02/02/0000 01:15:00 (before 2 months and 2 days, and 1 hour and 15 minutes)

For the tickets, see the support system.

Those formats are fine by me, except that it might be nice to have an option measured in weeks.  But then again, it'd be reasonable to do eg. +35/00/00 for 5 weeks.  Would that work? 

Glad to hear the other is implemented!  As soon as I upgrade my computer, I'll also install the new oStoryBook.

Suggestion 1:
Please create a ticket in the tracking system as a feature request. Your idea is interesting. Here

Suggestion 2:
There is a long time I want to change the relative date mechanism. I think the best way is to indicate the laps time in the form of :
- juste an integer value to indicate a number of days after
- something like "05/02/08" for 5 days, two months and 8 year after
- something like "3h12" for 3 hours and twelve minutes after

In the same way it would be simple to use the minus sign to indicate that it is not after but before.

Suggestion 3:
It is a little difficult to use the relative date in conjonction in Chronological vue. Suppose the first scene has a fixed date and time, but not the second, and the third has something like "3 days after". Then it is not possible to see le second and third scene in the Chronological vue. By the way I planed to work to find a solution to this problem.
