I bring up Timeline. It happens to have 1373-1293 BC in the box on the left. I paste in Jehoiakim on the right, it says there are 6 matches. But the screen is blank, and I scroll around and can't find them. How do I find these entries?

Good question.

I had to zoom out all the way to find any.  When I did I only saw 2:

So I zoomed in a bit and saw 5 (the same ones in M.J.'s pic):

I also noticed that these five would show up if I resized the window in the first zoom level (without zooming in).

I had to zoom practically all the way in to see all six:

Why don't all six show up in all zoom levels? There's plenty of space in the window.

Can we have a "Fit" view that fits to the visible events?

I was thinking the same thing yesterdaySmile

Or maybe an option to "go to first / next / previous / last" entry?

I'm glad you found the 6th ... I was convinced it was a bug in the count.Embarrassed

Thanks Todd for the explanation of how to find them. Glad I wasn't the only one seeing how difficult this is. I like the idea of using arrows to go to next/previous entry, as that would be consistent with other parts of Logos going between articles, etc.

Thanks!

Yes that is weird. As you can see (posted for Logos to see), picture 1 only shows 5 of the entries. I click in one more time and I get 6 (second picture). That's not very intuitive!

In an effort to improve performance by limiting the number of events that need to be laid out, a feature was added to the timeline tool that hides events that are significantly smaller than the current date range being viewed. In theory this would mean (for example) that if you have your timeline zoomed out to a 1000 year range, you wouldn't be seeing those single day events which are likely to be less significant at the scale you are viewing.

In practice, I don't think this actually works well. We are considering some alternative (and additional) mechanisms for reducing clutter and improving event organization. We do plan on implementing a feature to navigate to the nearest event that matches your filter.

For now, the easiest way to find your events if the filter results in an empty screen is to hit Ctrl-F (or Cmd-F on a Mac), and type the same thing in the find tool. You can then use the arrow buttons on this tool to navigate between all the matching events.

Thanks for that tip, Andrew.
