Creating a Timeline Template

Begin working with the timeline diagrams by creating a special timeline template. The template should be named with the filename “.timeline” at the end, e.g. “p4b_Timeline.timeline.vst”. Use as a model the timeline template, which you can find under the templates for the demo model. The timeline template consists of the following components:


The format, color, position and size of the shape can be changed. The components should be named just like in the screenshot below:


Place the timeline template (*vst) and the stencil (*vss) in those special folders where your templates are also placed for the database. Create the path to this folder in the Designer in the properties of a unit. Creating the timeline diagrams is only allowed for these units, which also have a reference to appropriate folders that include such a timeline template and a stencil.
