  1. Virginia, Thanks for checking here for help with saving a timeline for offline use. The best solution available right now is to save the web page to the thumb drive directly from within your web browser. Most browsers have a "Save Page" feature that will save the main HTML page along with the additional files (e.g., styles, images, etc.) to a folder. To view the page later, you open the saved file that has a .html file extension. The below web page has instructions for saving a web page using the Chrome web browser: How to Save Web Pages in Google Chrome I hope this helps you save a copy of your daughter's timelines to the thumb drives. We plan to make this easier in the future by adding a "Save Timeline to PDF" feature. Thanks, Panda Timelines Support
  2. John, Thanks for contacting us. With Panda Timelines you can create a timeline that includes both historical and ancestry events. After registering a free account, go to the "My TImelines" page and then choose "Create a Standard TImeline" to get started. A standard timeline supports dates between January 1, 0001 and December 31, 9999. As you add timeline events, they will automatically display in the proper date order in the timeline. You mentioned that you are creating a family history book. Is this an online book or physical printed book? Thanks, -DougO

    I went ahead and added a new date display mode that does what I believe you requested. I set your timeline to it, so please let me know if it looks right. The date display mode is set by clicking on the "Display Settings" button on the left of the edit page. There is a "Default Date Display" setting with a variety of different date formats. The new one is "2016" which indicates to only display the year. If you want to go back to your previous setting, change that setting to "July 2016". Btw, I've noticed a number of "Distance Learning" timelines. Is this perhaps part of a college assignment? Thanks, DougO Panda TImelines Team
  4. day and month removal

    Greetings, Thanks for using Panda Timlines! Let me make sure I understand how you would like your timeline to display. Dates are displayed in two places on the timeline. The first is the date/month marker that appears in a little box on the timeline in between the timeline entries. This box appears each time a new year/month starts. The second place is that each timeline entry has its date displayed along with it. Is it correct that you'd like to disable the dates that appear on each timeline entry and have the date/month marker show only the year? Once I understand exactly how you'd like to the dates to be displayed I can look into adding a new option for it. Thanks, DougO Panda TImelines Team
