Re: Can't get natural language recognition to work

Thanks for your patience in my response.

Parsing time is not locale-specific in California.  It attempts to recognize a variety of forms and translates them no matter the format.

Unfortunately, one format that is too ambiguous for California is "1900".  Because this can also be a street address number (and hence a location) the parser does not strictly convert it to a time.  For 24-hour time, the only format recognized is "19:00".  (This very example, coincidentally, is discussed on the Quick Add help page at

I'm open to hearing suggestions on other ways time formatting can be improved.  For example, 1900h or 1900hs would be a possibility, but of course that looks limited to certain Western languages.  There might be other common formats I'm not familiar with.  Do you have any suggestions?

I've been trying to add an event using the natural language feature, but I just can't get it to work. :( I'm clicking on a day and typing "Reunión con J at 1900" ("Reunión con J" is the name I want for my event), but it just adds the whole thing as an event name, and makes this a full-day event. I've tried the following variations: At 1900hs reunión con J At 1900 reunión con J Reunión con J at 1900 Reunión con J at 1900hs None of these were recognized properly. I *did* try to use US-formated time: "Reunión at 7pm", and this *did* work, however, my locale is set to properly, and does not use US-format for the time (or date for what that matters): $ env | egrep ^LC LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC=en_GB.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE=C LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8 I'm using version 0.2.0, git commit gc09c3d3. Do I need to do anything else? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks,
