Highlights & Features

Simple point-and-click editing

Visually place events on your timeline. Drag events or sections around, or click and drag on events to change their duration.

Rich document styling

Set shapes, colors, label styles, grid lines, sizes, backgrounds, and more. Copy and paste styles, and save your theme to use again later.

Fast data entry

Activate Quick Entry mode and type in event titles and dates, one after another. No mouse required.

Flexible time scale

Choose your view: years, months, weeks, and days. Adjust your time scale to see more or fewer time units per page.

Event grouping

Organize your events into sections. Rearrange, expand, collapse, or completely hide sections with a few clicks.

Image file export

Directly save to a PNG image file, to put on the Web, into another document or presentation, or anywhere else.

PDF and printer output

Print your document or share it as a PDF, formatting for page sizes, backgrounds, and scaling.

Import and export of CSV

Load event data from another app, spreadsheet, or tool, or save it to use elsewhere, as a plain CSV file.

A great Mac app

TimeStory is Mac-first, with things you expect like built-in Help, full-screen mode, and Dark Mode.
