In Timeline View, Prevent Events "Jumping to the Top"?

ATL is one of my favorite apps, and I've used it for over ten books. Is there anyway to prevent the events from "jumping up to the top?" At some zoom levels, the events cascade down the page continuously, like this: [Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 3](//muut.com/u/aeontimeline/s3/:aeontimeline:4afQ:screenshot20181112at3.40.14pm.jpg.jpg) That's great, because I can scroll down and see only the most recent events. However, when I zoom in, the newer events will jump to the top, like this: [Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 3](//muut.com/u/aeontimeline/s3/:aeontimeline:aR6c:screenshot20181112at3.43.06pm.jpg.jpg) That's a problem for dragging new events to an area in between the lower events and top. That is, I can't see all of the latest events at once. Hope that's clear. I could possibly use filters to show only the events I'm interested in, but is there an easier way? Thanks!

Hi, Unfortunately there is no display setting that does this at the moment. It was something we had initially, however decided not to include it as it became hard to find events in the vertical space when scrolling, as it would result in quite big lists. There is a bookmark "Last" on the timeline, which will take you immediately to the last event, however it doesn't solve your problem where you wish to view consecutive events on the same screen. You can play around with the different layouts in Display settings (the paintbrush icon) to see if any of them work better for you, but none of them just do a big long list. We will consider this when we look at improving layouts. Jess
