Version 2.6.3 is another maintenance release, catching up on fixes and small
improvements, while development is continuing on macOS Monterey features.
- When placing a span event, you can now click, hold, and immediately drag to
set its duration, instead of having to place and then separately resize it.
This feels much more like painting events on a canvas. (If you don’t drag,
and just click, it works exactly as before; an event is created with a
duration of one of the currently-selected unit of time.)
- Press the new “?” button on the Event Filter to see a brief summary of the
main filtering options, or to quickly jump to the detailed documentation
within the User Guide.
- Tags are now shown without # markers in the Tags field and in the Event
Details popover. (The #tag form is still how you embed them within
titles or descriptions, and the exact tag match option in the Event Filter.)
- Fit All Events will now adjust both time unit and horizontal scale as
needed. (It would previously only adjust the scale, which worked poorly if
the timeline was too large or too small to comfortably use the current time
- If you dragged a window, and then resized it, version 2.6.2 would often
scroll the document unexpectedly; this has been fixed.
- If a left-side section header contains a long title (longer than fits within
the header), it’s supposed to simply clip (cut off) at the edge, but instead
it would sometimes scroll or move over to the left.
- It was possible, after some sequence of actions involving changing the
time-range highlight, editing events, and invoking Undo and Redo, to get
into a state where the time-range highlight did not paint correctly until
you made another edit.
