The Time Line option is available on the Tasks Pane and is used to simultaneously update the queried date range for one or more of the existing plotted objects. This is triggered by selecting a date range from the time line and clicking the Update button. Prior to doing so, it is necessary to edit each object and place a check at Use Document Date Range in the Query tab of the plot object.
The time line may also be used to generate animated gif files. Similar to updating based on the active date range, edit each object and place a check at Use Document Date Range in the Query tab. Next, place a check in the Active column of each of the date range rows that will appear in the animated gif. Click the Animate button to review the generated gif images in the FormGIFPreviewSave window. Set preferences and select the Export button to create the animated gif file.
