  • Hope the writer can see this. The most missed feature is the font size change for the EVENT caption. Many fonts size can be changed but only the EVENT caption cannot, but EVENT is the most important one. Very strange logic.

  • The interface is very intuitive. I am finding the program easy to use and it has exactly the functions that I need. Still, it seems to need some work on stability. Whenever I return to it after a break, portions are unresponsive, for instance HELP ABOUT, on my otherwise very stable WIN7U system. This program/project shows great promise. Thank you.

  • Love the idea of this program. I use it to plot my novels and it works better for me than the old index card programs I used to use. The only thing I'd like to see implemented is the ability to change the font size in the timeline tags and comment boxes. I run my monitor at 1920x1080 and the text is quite small on the screen. I can change the font sizes for the timeline itself, but not the actual tags and comments. That would be great.

  • Issue: after running the application, there prompt an error. $ python Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 27, in <module> import wxversion ImportError: No module named wxversion How to fix this, please. Thanks for this application for monitoring events.

  • Help! All of a sudden I cannot open an important timeline file. The application returns an Error window. "Unable to read timeline data from (path)" and the error code "(path):2935:129: not well-formatted (invalid token)" Is there a way to recover the file?
