How to print "Between Dates" in Relationship View

Thu, 26 Jul 2018 21:33:54 GMT

When I try to print from Relationship View, my only option is "Entire Timeline." Both "Current Window" and "Between Dates" are dimmed. From what I can see, Between Dates is available only in Timeline View. I'd really like to be able to print Between Dates in Relationship View. That can give me a handy print outline I can provide to Beta Readers with draft stories, but only if I can constrain it to print a date range. Is it possible? AT2 2.3.9 on MacOS 10.13.6.

Hi, You can use the filter function to first filter your timeline to only show between certain dates in relationship view. Then when you print "Entire Timeline" in Relationship View, it will only print the events shown. You can read about how to set up a filter here: Jess

That's what I've done, but it seems like a needless extra step given the fact the date range filtering exists for the Timeline View but is disabled for Relationship View. It's frustrating to see that button dimmed out when I want to quickly print a date range for a subset of events I don't already have a filter set-up for. No, it's not onerous to set up a filter, but I shouldn't have to. The filter already exists right in the print dialog, dimly mocking me.

Hi, We understand this must be frustrating since the option is available in the timeline view, so we will look at adding it in the future. Jess

Thank you. Like I said, the filtering isn't onerous, but for a quick print-out of a narrow range, it would be handier to just define the range the window dialog.
