        • Note: editing an earlier event and selecting “all future events” will no longer include this event. It has been split and will be ignored.
        • Places a “gap” in the repeating pattern for the day of this edited and split event. Example: An event repeats for 3 days, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. If I edit the Tuesday event, and select “only this event”, it is now split from the larger pattern. After I’m finished, if I edit Monday and select “this event and all future events” tuesday is ignored, and the system does not insert a new event in that Tuesday slot.
