We've been experimenting with some interesting new ways to display timelines. In particular, I have been playing with design ideas that will allow the presentation of large timelines one event at a time in a classroom / lecture type setting.
I would love to hear your feedback about the ways that you present your timelines now. Are you printing them out, putting them into a PowerPoint, or displaying them in the full screen Presentation Mode? How do you share your work with your audience and what are the challenges? Would you find value in a mode that allowed you to step through each event one at a time in a presentation? I'd really appreciate your feedback using the blog comments or in e-mail.
Also, as I am working on new designs it would be very helpful to have a selection of real-world timelines to test against. If you are a Bee Docs' Timeline customer and reading this blog, would you take a minute to send me a copy of your favorite timeline document? It would be great to have a variety of subjects and timeline styles to test against.
My e-mail is Adam at Bee Documents dot com. Thanks!

Here is a video that shows how to use Bee Docs Timeline to make interactive timelines using event links. It also shows the creation of an interactive PDF timeline, a brand new feature added in the latest update.
