[Feature Request] Fix the time advancement of SkySafari by months and years

https://support.simulationcurriculum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360026067914-Why-When-Skipping-Days-Months-Or-Years-In-SkySafari-6-Pro-Do-Other-Times-Change-Answer-When-You-Skip-One-Month-SS-Adds-30-Days-Etc-?page=1#community_comment_360011224294 

As addressed in the topic linked above, SkySafari is lazy about advancing time by months and years.  This causes times and dates to slip as you run a time simulation and generally makes it less useful.

Additionally, there's no option to advance by tropical years. That would be a nice addition, though not as high of a priority as fixing normal time advancement.

    Hi Bleys,  I've added this to our list of items to tackle.  I'll bring it up at our next dev meeting.  I think at the very least it should jump by Sidereal month rather than just 30 days. Also made a note for tropical year. Pedro

    Point of information:  SkySafari Pro already has a "Sidereal Months" increment option. (Not that I understand exactly when you would want to use it.)
