Any Way to Organize Events Like This

Here is how a part of my current timeline looks: [CurrentTimeLine](//muut.com/u/aeontimeline/s3/:aeontimeline:LAAs:currenttimeline.jpg.jpg) I would prefer that it look like this (mockup): [Suggested](//muut.com/u/aeontimeline/s3/:aeontimeline:KV6Q:suggested.jpg.jpg) Is there any way to tell ATL to use that space at the bottom? Thanks!

Hi, Aeon Timeline has three different layouts that you can choose from, which you can read about in more detail here: https://help.aeontimeline.com/article/44-display-settings under the heading Layout. You can change this in Display Settings (the paintbrush icon). You can change between them to see which one works best for you, from the sounds of it "Only return to top when clear of all previous" might be closest to what you are looking for. Jess

Excellent. I should have known you've considered that issue. I looked for an option like that, but not hard enough, apparently. Thanks.

Actually, I still can't get the ideal arrangement. Unless I'm missing something, I often have to choose between having events restricted to only part of the window or extending well below it, requiring me to have to scroll down to see them all. Here's an example: [Screen Shot 2020-06-05 at 2](//muut.com/u/aeontimeline/s2/:aeontimeline:KreX:screenshot20200605at2.34.37pmcopy.jpg.jpg) Why can't the display of events jump up to the top as soon as it would go below the visible part of the window? Here's the option I'd like to see: Return to top when get to bottom, or something like that. That is, have the events jump to the top when the bottom of the window is reached.

Hi, Unfortunately we don't have a display option that is dependent upon the window size. The option that you are describing would work for some cases, however for many it wouldn't (for example cases where there are many events at similar or the same time would need to be accommodated differently). Due to the complexities of this algorithm and the fact that it wouldn't be able to be correct for all cases, it isn't something we would look to add in the future. Jess
