Applying a theme

To apply a theme to a timeline:

  1. Create a new timeline chart or select a previously created timeline, using the timeline chart tabs or Timeline Charts pane.
  2. Click on one of the themes in the Themes pane.
  3. Select the Apply button.

All of the elements in your timeline will now be modified with the styles of the theme.

Applying a Style

You can also apply styles of a theme to portions of your timeline. In the Themes pane, beneath the list of themes, you will see tabs for each element of the timeline, such as Event, Text Box, Picture, and so on. Within those tabs, a sample of every style used in the selected theme is displayed. When you make changes to the timeline chart, such as selecting a new color, bar shape, font, etc., those styles are displayed as well.

Tip: A “T” under a sample style indicates that it belongs to a saved theme.

To apply a style to an element of your timeline:

  1. While viewing your timeline chart, click on the element you wish to modify (e.g. title, an event, or group of events, etc.) This will highlight the element on the timeline, as well as open the corresponding tab in the Themes pane.
  2. In the Themes pane, right-click on the style you wish to apply.
  3. Click Apply to Selected.

Tip: If you wish to apply a style to an entire category of events, while viewing your timeline chart click the Event tab in the Themes pane, right-click on the desired style, select Apply to Category and click on the category of your choice.

Deleting Styles

To delete a style:

  1. Right-click on the style you wish to delete.
  2. Select Delete Style.

This will delete the style and revert any elements using this style back to the default style. Note that deleting a style from the timeline chart will not affect the saved themes. The styles in saved themes are locked and cannot be removed.
