I have a question about timelines on Paper. Any ideas?

Helpful | Level 5

How far back is it possible to go?

I need to start a historical timeline in December 1915. Is it possible?

If so, how?

Re: Timeline


Of course it is @kjerh - just use the 'Year" filter from the upper right corner of your timeline within your Paper doc and then 'Scroll Back' using the backwards arrow from the same, upper right corner to go to the desired date i.e. December of 1915.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for using Paper and happy Monday too!
