Release Notes for TimeStory 1.2
1.2 was released on July 22, 2019.
It follows 1.1, and was followed by 1.2.1.
The Time Scroller is a new control which hovers at the bottom of your
timeline and provides buttons to scroll horizontally (forward and backward in
time) by different amounts.
You can still navigate your timeline just as before, with regular trackpad
scrolling gestures and arrow keys, and if you want to hide the Time Scroller,
just use the View menu (or right-click on it and press Hide).

the document. This is great for maintaining a detailed roadmap, but hiding

their visibility, or jump directly to one in the main document.
New event shapes

New CSV export
Having used TimeStory to map out a series of events, you can now export
those events into a simple, plain-text comma-separated values (CSV) file. This
lets you bring these events into other tools, like spreadsheets. This export
omits all of your formatting and positioning, but contains all the event data:
dates, title text, description text, and section assignments.
