Let's try this again. I've created a large timeline with around 50 exhibits at attachments. I'd like to be able to exchange the interactive timeline, for example on a thumbdrive which can be viewed by the judge. Any advise how best to do this?

Hi, The best way for them to view the timeline would be to use the web export functionality. This exports a read-only version that can be opened in most web browsers. You can read about how to do a web export here: https://help.aeontimeline.com/article/75-export-to-web Note that when you export in this way, it does not contain the inspector. So in order for people to access information for each event (eg. attachments) it needs to be added to the information that is displayed when a user expands an event. This can be done in Display Settings (the paintbrush icon) where you drag items in and out of the area under "Display contents for expanded events". So in your case, you would want "attachments" to be dragged to this section, so when the user expands the event they will be able to access the attachment for each event. Jess

Thanks Jess. I do have the files added as attachments, however, when I export as a web export, the folder containing all of the files do not contain any of the information. What do I need to do to export a read-only contained folder with events and their attachments? I'm thinking I need to copy the timeline and all original attachments into the same folder, copy that to a thumb drive, and reconnect the attachments?

Hi, When you say that the folder containing all of the files does not contain any of the information, do you mean any of the attachments? When you created the web export, did it create a folder called "attachments"? Jess

OK, I re-downloaded the Web Export folder I created. I was transferring over a ftp and the first download didn't contain all of the files. My new download opens fine in Chrome and all attachments at there. Thank you so much!
