The Time Line option is available on the Tasks Pane and is used to simultaneously update the queried date range for one or more of the existing plotted objects.
Note: All plotted objects listed with Use Document Date Range checked will be updated, even if they are unchecked in the Plot Control window (i.e. not active).
In order to use Time Line, please follow these steps:
1.Click Time Line in the bottom right-hand corner.
2.On the right-hand side, type in start and end dates for each desired date range
3.Create or edit any existing plot object and place a check at Use Document Date Range in the Query tab of the plot object.
To update all plotted objects that have Use Document Date Range checked, select a date range from the time line and click the Update button.
The time line may also be used to generate animated gif files. Similar to updating based on the active date range, edit each object and place a check at Use Document Date Range in the Query tab. Next, place a check in the Active column of each of the date range rows that will appear in the animated gif. Click the Animate button to review the generated gif images in the FormGIFPreviewSave window. Set preferences and select the Export button to create the animated gif file.
