How do you view "Age on..." a BC date?

I'd like to use the "Age on..." option to see a person's age in a BC year.

The pop up is in YYYY-MM-DD format.

What do I put in for the year if it's a BC year?

There is a little "expand" triangle next to the dates (and the name). If you click on the triangle, it will expand to show the options that you need.

Thanks. I have added BC birthdays to people in the tree.

However, I would like to use the feature in Options to view everyone's age.

After I check the "Age" box, there's a dropdown where I can choose "now" or "on...". When I select "on...", I get a pop up where I have to type the date in YYYY-MM-DD format. Is it possible to enter a BC date there?
Oh, I understand now. This would be a feature request for the Developer, but it seems like a reasonable one to me. If I were you, I would write it up and send it in via the Send Feedback link at the bottom of the Family Echo screen.
