It is of essence to add issues fairly far out into the future
The reason for this is that in order to sell an ad in the 2019 October issue (for example), that issue need to exist in RunMags. Likewise, in order to sell a one year, 12 issues subscription, each and every one of those future issues need to exist before you create the subscription sales order. If they don't exist, RunMags will not calculate the sales order correctly and your distribution will be off.
