Sorry. didn't let me finish! I have two timelines. Both in AT2. Need to bring one into the other? Question is how? Tried to do it using import export. But the moment I try and import it starts asking tons of questions about which fields.... etc. Must be an easy way right?

Hi, We will look to include a specific “merge timelines” function in a future release to make it easier to combine multiple timelines into one, but for the moment, the inexact science of CSV export/import, or direct copy and paste are the best available options. So if you don't want to use import/export, you can select all your events (Ctrl A or from the Edit Menu) and then copy/paste them into the other timeline. If you want to merge the two using import/export: Export the file to csv, then import the this file in the other timeline. The application will ask what columns of the csv file correspond to which properties of the events. If you open the csv in excel (or equivalent) you can see what the columns correspond to, and can input this information. You can read more about Import/Export here: Regards, Jess

The copy and paste seem to be the best option, but no matter what I set in the options, the dependenies between events are lost. Is there a fix to keep the dependencies when copy one timeline and pasting to another one?

agreed -- I'm losing all of my entities when I copy and paste, and when I use the CSV function I don't know where to map this data to have it come across.
