Newbie question! What is the keypad for that pops up when you click on drop-downs in Settings?

Not sure what you mean. Which settings are you talking about?

I do, but no keypad. Are you possible accidentally hitting some key combination that triggers it?

No. Just had a look at the video on Timeline settings, https://www.aeontimeline.com/videos/ and if you watch from about 4min 30secs you will see the keypad come up but he does not explain what it does.

Hi, I assume you are talking about the grid popup that has 11/13 as its title in the screenshot you posted? This is giving the user the ability to choose the icon for the Entity Type or Role. If you are using Relationship view, when you mark a relationship between an entity and an event, in the grid there is an icon displayed to mark this relationship. This is the icon displayed next to the Role for that entity - this popup allows you to change the icon if you want. The icon next to the Entity Type (which is the one shown in the screenshot) is also used in Relationship View - it will be displayed next to each entity name to show what entity type it is. Jess

Thank you Jess, that is it exactly.
