Can I set start and end dates for the timeline?

I need hard dates for when the timeline begins and ends. My timeline begins about 1800 and goes to 1940, but unless I'm very careful when I scroll I end up in the 22nd century or sometime BC. I need to scroll to stop once it reaches the beginning or end.

Hi, You cannot specifically set hard dates for when the timeline begins and ends, however there is an option in display settings (the paintbrush icon) to restrict scrolling to the first and last event in the timeline. If you set this option, then the timeline won't scroll past any events in your timeline. If you add events to dates outside this area, then the scrolling area will expand with it. You can create "Start of timeline" and "End of timeline" events if you want to restrict scrolling to certain dates using this method. Jess
