By default, Timeline Maker Pro will automatically center the timescale in the vertical middle of the page. Events are then placed on the timeline chart above the date/time they occurred on the timescale. If there is no room above the timescale, or if an event box will collide with other events, the event will be placed below the timescale, under the date/time it occurred.
Because events in the Flag Chart are placed in boxes connected by arrows to the timescale, and not in bars, you can position the event anywhere on the timeline chart, without the horizontal restriction found in the Bar Chart.
To move events on the timeline chart:
- Select the event(s) you wish to move.
- While holding the left mouse button, drag the event(s) to the desired position on the chart.
Tip: If, after making changes to the timeline chart, you wish to return to the default layout, you can do so by clicking the Auto Arrange button, found in the Chart tab, Chart group. When using Auto Arrange, you can choose Maintain under Flag Size so that any changes you’ve made to the flag size is preserved. Alternatively, you can select Reset under Flag Size to return the chart to its original flag size and layout state.
