I really would like to be able to create own skins. Please!! If there is any way you could make that possible, do it. I would be so happy!

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion, it is on our to-do list, but at the moment is fairly low priority. Jess

Wow, that's cool! I can wait. I understand that there are more important things to do first. Thanks for letting me know and have a wonderful day :)

I have found that you can change (part of) the skin -- but only for a web-exported version of your timeline, which means it's only useful for 'finished' or exported timelines that are being posted (or some such) for others to use. This is the case for the history/bibliography timelines I generate with Aeon. So: if you export a timeline for web viewing, one of the folders created is titled 'skins'. For **some** of Aeon's skins, the background image resides in this folder in the form of a .jpg. If you replace the .jpg, then when you open the timeline in your browser, your .jpg will be used as the background.

Hi, The main themes for accessibility would be the Dark, Light or Print themes. Are you able to go into more detail about these three? (ie. which parts either cause problems with colour blindness, or hurt your eyes?) Jess

I also would like to be able to create/adapt skins. The feature I would most like to be able to create is to somehow make the vertical lines in a timeline more prominent/bolder so it is easier to see corresponding events in different arcs. Perhaps a facility something like you get in spreadsheets where it is possible to alter the width or colour of the grids? The attached 2 screenshots illustrate what I mean, even in the Light skin the lines are just not prominent enough for my eyesight, the Writer skin is a little better but the background is distracting. I would also like the ability to change the colour of the background especially in the "Light" skin from a less glaring white to , e.g. a more parchment the colour.
