Bug in Forecaster extension

I am running Quicken and Moneydance side-by-side for a month or two to check that I can safely migrate from Quicken (which no longer works properly on Linux) to Moneydance.

The Forecaster extension, which is absolutely essential (and not yet good enough -- see Balances in Calendar) -- has an odd bug.

Try this:

  1. Add an entry on 1st November 2011 for any amount and make it repeating every 28 days.
  2. Refresh your screen (because of the bug where new entries do not display on the Reminders screen).
  3. On the Reminders screen, it correctly shows on Tuesdays 1st & 29th November, 27th December, and so on on every fourth Tuesday.
  4. Now run Extensions > Forecaster > Table. Notice that the the entry shows, bewilderingly, on Tuesday 1st, Wednesday 2nd and 29th November, 28th December, and so on on every fourth Wednesday.

Please fix this, as I cannot migrate to Moneydance without Forecaster.

Thank you.

    Hi Paddy

    The forecaster extension is not written by the Moneydance team it is written by a 3rd party. The developer of the extension discussed issues with the extension here:

    I encourage your to copy your feedback to that thread.
