What is the unit of xxx?

\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2016.xxx}{xxx}{Test}{Test}{}{}{}

Is it right, that the 1.1.2016 is 2016.0 and the 31.06.2016 is 2016.5 ? 2016.5 is the same than 2016.500?

Well, it is just a decimal number. But you can interprete it like:

\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2017.0}{0}{Test}{Test}{}{}{}

2017 or 2017.0 is the 1. Jan. 2017 2016 or 2016.0 is the 1. Jan. 2016

If you want to display the 1. Feb. 2016 add 1/12=0,0833333333 to 2016:

\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2016.08333}{Feb}{+1/12}{Test}{}{}{}
\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2016.41666}{Mai}{+4/12}{Test}{}{}{} 
\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2016.91666}{Dez}{+11/12}{Test}{}{}{}

If you want to adress a special day for example the 11. Jan. 2016 you can calulate 2016 + 10/365 = 2016 + 0,02739 and so on.

The following MWE shows you some calculations:

  • But, I think the "Mai" is more to the "Juli" as to the "Mar" and the "Mai" should be exatly between "Mar" and "Juli". Something went wrong. Who can help?

  • Someone knows how I can exactle draw a timeline with exact setting of the days?

  • Between Mar and Mai is April missing and between Mai and Juli is June missing. So Mai really should be in the middle. Someone knows how I can exactle draw a timeline with exact setting of the days?

  • Nobody? Really? Then I need something other.

There is not really a unit. You can state a year, and then that timeline shows that year's position on the line like on a progress bar.

See this example, that makes it more clear:

\usepackage[firstyear=2007,lastyear=2017]{moderntimeline}
...
\makecvtitle
The time lines start at 2007 and end at 2017.
