FAQ and Other Tips and Tricks

This page is home to our FAQ, where you can find information on all sorts of things, from useful info about using Moodle and Google Docs to how to give someone access to course materials.  If you have any questions you would like to see us add answers to, please email us.

Since we have many questions answered here, we recommend that you either search by entering a keyword or by choosing a category in the blue box below instead of browsing the entire set.  For ease of use, we have links to broad categories below, but if you are looking for something that does not fit these categories, more are available in the drop-down menu in the blue box.  You may choose to add a focus (second category) to narrow your search.

Can I add bold, italics or underline to events in my timeline?

Not really.  You must use the same font face and formatting for the entire timeline, and cannot make any additions to formatting to specific events.  Timeline 3D automatically bolds the Event Label of each event. 

You can choose the font face used for the entire timeline by going to the Settings panel > Visual Design.  If the Settings panel is not visible, click on the Settings icon in the upper right.

You can use the Format menu at the top to add bold or italics TO THE ENTIRE TIMELINE. In testing, I found that it was difficult to remove these options, so choose them carefully!
