There are many options to print, publish and present your timeline charts and chronologies, including a variety of graphic formats, PDF and HTML. Timeline Maker Pro’s built-in presentation tool and seamless integration with Microsoft PowerPoint give you a choice in how to best present your timelines.
Sharing Timelines is Easier Than Ever!
Timeline Maker Pro’s new and exclusive Package for Sharing function makes sure that your timeline files are always intact for sharing with others or making a presentation on a different computer. When combined with the free “read only” Timeline Maker Viewer this powerful feature allows you to accurately and securely share your timelines with anyone, anywhere.
“I am in law enforcement and we use Timeline Maker on big cases… We sampled several timeline software programs and Timeline Maker was hands down the best program available. It’s ease of use for entering data is simple and saves hours from how we use to create timelines. The charts are great and easy to understand.”
