Timeline quick menu

Last updated: 3 January 2019


This article will show you the different features and options that are available from the timeline thumbnail of an element.


The timeline thumbnail of a text or image element can be in 2 different states - collapsed and expanded.

When it is collapsed there are three icons on the timeline thumbnail - Properties (A), Hide/unhide (B), Delete (C). The thumbnail can also be double-clicked to open the element properties.

When the timeline thumbnail is expanded (D) the icons above are still visible and you will also see options to change the Animate, Pause and Transition times and the Camera settings.

When the Animate icon is selected (E), the animate time can be increased and decreased using the plus and minus icons (F).

When the Pause icon is selected (G), the pause time can be increased and decreased using the plus and minus icons (H).

When the Transition icon is selected (I), the transition time can be increased and decreased using the plus and minus icons (J).

When the Camera Settings icon is selected (K), you can set the current camera position for the element (L), remove the camera position that is set for the element (M) and view the camera position that is set for the element (N).

If a camera position has already been set for the element, the set camera icon will be blue.

If no camera position is set for the element, the set camera icon will have a white background and the remove camera position icon will be inactive. The element will have the default camera position set for it.

You can right click on the timeline thumbnail to reveal some more options (O). From this menu, you can open the element properties, delete the element, play the scribe from that element, move the element back one place in the timeline, move the element forward one place in the timeline, move it to the end of the timeline and move it to the start of the timeline.
