Timeline View is a huge and valuable feature.
There are, however, two things about it I haven’t quite figured out yet.
TimelineBand as KeyAttribute. There I can decide in which TimelineBand a certain is supposed to appear. (Let’s say we have three TimelineBand = 0,1,2)
I then set
TimelineBandLabels as KeyAttribute as well. Because: I want to name those TimelineBands. (Let’s say: 0 = Here; 1 = There; 2 = Everywhere.
How would an if-else-rule look like when I wanted Tinderbox to automatically assign:
- the TimelineBandLabel “Here” when the TimelineBand is “0” is set OR
- the TimelineBandLabel “There” when the TimelineBand is “1” is set OR
- the TimelineBandLabel “Everywhere” when the TimelineBand is “2” is set.
Why are those TimelineBandLabels not available in Timeline View? Tinderbox does place the events in accordance to the TimelineBand value I set! Fine!
But the TimelineBandLabels do not appear. One has to enter them manually. To do that, one has to switch to the View Timeline (from the View Menu) an the click on the little “i”-icon in the Timeline-View-Tab. There, under “Labels” one can manually enter the TimelineBandLabels.
It’s interesting, though, that only those values entered in “Labels” become available in TimelineBandLabels. (But again: It does not seem to work the other way around.)
Any ideas how to go about solving the First and the Second Thing?
