[New Feature] Customize Your Page Margins


We’re on a roll, and I’m excited to share another new feature with you… 🙂

As of now, you can customize the page margins for your timelines!

Over the years, one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that each of you has your own special way of doing timelines… And that means you may want to show more or less content on each page.

Maybe you like to show more content per page, so your timelines will have fewer pages overall. Or maybe you just want to maximize horizontal space to be able to show a larger floor plan image.

Whatever the case, now you can set your top, bottom, left, and right margins just the way you want them.

To see a quick tutorial on customizing your margins, just check out the video below.


Enjoy your new customizable page margins, and be on the lookout for more awesome improvements over the next few days!

[New Feature] Introducing Hyperlinks


As of now, you can easily insert hyperlinks in your timelines!

So let’s say you need to reference a specific list of songs in a timeline item… Now you can link directly to a playlist on Spotify or YouTube.

Or maybe you wanna make it easy for people to get directions to one of the venues in your timeline… No sweat, just insert a link for the venue address on Google Maps.

And the cool thing is, not only will your hyperlinks work online, they’ll also be embedded in your timeline PDFs. So you can click or tap on hyperlinked PDF text and go straight to the desired web destination.

To see a quick tutorial on the new hyperlink feature, just check out the video below.


We hope this new hyperlink feature lets you add even more flair and professionalism to your timelines.

Be on the lookout for more awesome improvements over the next few days!

[New Feature] Make Grid Lines on Your Timeline


Get ready for a series of new feature updates over the next couple weeks because we’ve been busy improving the site for you!

Today, I want to announce a new feature that lets you show (or hide) grid lines on your timelines! (We added the new grid line option as a setting in your Preferences section.)

Over the years, we’ve gotten a number of requests for this feature… Some of you used to create your timelines in Excel or Google Sheets (before you discovered the magic of Timeline Genius :D). So if you find yourself missing grid lines on your timelines, you can add them back now.

To see a quick tutorial on the new grid lines feature, just check out the video below.

This new feature is just another way that Timeline Genius lets you express your own unique style, creativity, and professionalism.

So if grid lines are your thang, enjoy! And keep on shinin’ like the rock star you are 🙂
