Steps to reproduce:

Edit a recurring event whose Repeat value is Custom...

Actual results:

I see a preview of when the event will occur in calendar months.  The day is highlighted to indicate upcoming occurrences.

Expected results:

I would like to see the future dates as plain text.  If I have a recurring event every 6 months, I cannot see the next occurrence unless I make the Edit Recurrence dialog VERY wide.

Maybe the Preview pane at the bottom of the Edit Recurrence dialog could be a tabbed pane with two tabs: Calendar View and Text View.  The calendar view would be left as-is; although the highlighted day(s) are very faint and difficult to see -- maybe they could be a different color.  The text view would just show the dates as text, one date per line, for the next 5 years or so.  

Basically, I use the calendar to set a lot of reminders.  I often want to know when a certain event will occur next.  It is inconvenient to find this out.
