Restricting timeline

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 03:10:11 GMT

I have a project that spans six month in 1996-97. The horizontal scroll seems too large. How can I limit or restrict the timeline so I am not required to zoom constantly

Hi, You can restrict the timeline in two ways. In Display Settings (paint brush icon) you can set the Scrolling menu item to "Restrict scrolling to first/last event". This means you can't scroll past the first and last events of your timeline. The other way to restrict the timeline is to define Zoom Settings. This is done in Timeline Settings-> Range->Date. You can define the zoom limits for your timeline (eg. Months to Years) to define how far you can zoom in and out. If either of these things do not help you, would you be able to clarify a bit more what the problem is? Jess

I have a related (perhaps similar?) question as the original query: Is there a shortcut so that the view is forced to show everything from the first to the last events in the timeline using the maximum available screen space?

Hi, This functionality is performed by the menu item View->Zoom->Zoom To Fit The corresponding shortcuts for Mac and Windows are listed next to the menu item. Jess

Thx...I've been overlooking the zoom to fit for whatever reason!
