T2 Sneak Peaks: Event Rows

Thursday, October 18, 2007

A while back, I posted a tutorial for creating parallel timelines using Bee Docs' Timeline and page layout software. Charting multiple rows of events is a great way to make comparisons. For instance, you could compare one persons recollection to another or you compare the history of painting with architecture.

In T2, multiple event rows will be a built in feature and will be easy to create. For example, I have created a timeline that compares major releases of Windows OS with major releases of Mac OS X:

Hi Adam,

T2 looks great - I can't wait to be able to try it.

By the way, your RSS feed seems to be broken. In NetNewsWire the latest entry is back in May 2007...

Karen,

Thank you for alerting me to the problem with the RSS feed. I'm working on fixing that now!

Adam,

This program looks so juicy, it makes me want to buy a Mac instead of a PC as my next computer.

dude I can't even tell you how long I have been scouring the web for something like this- for MAC.

I can't wait to see T2, what I really want in parallel timelines though is for their to be a center horizontal line, with one set of data going up, and the other hanging down below (does that make any sense?).

Hi Adam,

I just bought Timeline yesterday, and it works great. The one problem I'm consistently having, and that I hope might be addressed in T2, is that many of my events have long names, and end up overlapping other events and becoming illegible. I would LOVE to see:
-the ability to drag/ vertically move any given event
-multiple lines in an event description, so you can control line breaks.

This would help me control presentation. The events with descriptions of several words end up messing everything up, and often wrapping across pages.

Thanks for the product. Will T2 have an upgrade of Timeline, or will it be a completely separate purchase?

Thanks,
Jen

Help! Is there a way to make multiple timelines in v. 2.1.3? The tutorial only addresses the older version (1.6) and the new version has different options. Thanks!
