New shapes for point events
1.7 adds several new shapes and symbols to mark points in time, to liven up
and bring more meaning to your documents.
Web links in text
Now, add direct links to Web resources (or to anything with a URL) to provide
more context and documentation to your timelines. Any region of text can be
turned into a custom link, in section headings, event titles, and description
Finder Thumbnails (for Catalina users)
On macOS Catalina, when browsing TimeStory documents in Finder, you now get a
graphical thumbnail showing part or all of your document, instead of just a
document icon. (Mojave and High Sierra users will still see the same icon as
before; this feature depends on new capabilities in Catalina.)
(That’s Finder, not TimeStory.)
- If an event’s title is partially scrolled off screen, or is truncated
because there’s not enough space, TimeStory now provides a tooltip with the
full title if you hover your mouse.
- The “Round” style endpoints for span events have been improved in
appearance. The previous version was not visually aligned with the other
endpoint shapes, appearing to end too early or start too late.
- When editing an event’s title within the document, if you deleted all its
text, the text cursor could be positioned incorrectly. If you later came
back to enter text, the new text could in some cases have lost the color or
font styling that was applied before it was deleted.
- The Today button, when used to activate the highlight for today’s date,
should scroll that highlight to become visible if it is not; in 1.6.1, that
scrolling was disabled.
- The “Duplicate Event” function always inserted a new row, even if there was
no overlap with an existing event which would require a new row.
- The pop-up calendar picker next to date entry fields (in the Inspector or in
the Quick Entry area) would always open with today’s date highlighted,
instead of the date which was already in the field.
