T2 Sneak Peeks: Bulk Edit Mode

Thursday, October 11, 2007

If you need to create a timeline with very many events, it is often best to enter all the data first and then format the timeline. In the current release, I often use Excel to create tab delimited text files of my events and then import them. However, it is not very convenient to use two different applications...

I am pleased to announce that T2 will allow an editable table view of your events! It looks like this:

T2: Bulk Edit Mode

In table view, you will be able to add, delete, and edit events as well as drag images onto events and assign event colors. You will also be able to use search to find exactly the events you are looking for.

As an example of how helpful this feature can be, the timeline shown in the screenshot has 254 events from wikipedia (printing on letter size paper spans 140 pages). To color all the events related to Russia red, I searched for "russia" then did a "select all" and chose red as the event color. I'll give more details on search in the next post...

All of this is really looking wonderful. Do you have a timeline (sorry) for how soon it'll all be released, after this Friday's launch of the new big cat?
