I tend to forget that date filters are affected by date preferences.
So when filtering Events or Persons on date ranges, it is always disconcerting to see results with dates FAR outside my filter parameters.
i.e., when search for births “from 1900 to 1925”, it also returns “Before” dates to 1975, “After” dates after 1850, and “About” dates from 1850 to 1975.
I could temporarily tweak the 3 values in the Date tab of Preferences before Filtering (or exporting/reporting filtered datasets), but it would be nice to have something that does this temporarily AND is visible enough to remind that the dates can be fuzzy.
Could a scaling factor be added to the date Filter? When the “less fuzzy” scaling factor is enabled, the value of the Before, After & About is temporarily 10% of its normal value.
So a ±50 year “About” changes to ±5 years and the fuzziness reduces from a century to a decade.
