About the Time Axis Tab
In OnePager Express all the Time Axis controls are consolidated into a new Chart Properties form tab called the Time Axis tab. The Chart Properties form’s Time Axis tab is almost identical to the same tab on the Template Properties form so the Chart Properties form’s Time Axis tab and its five (5) sub-tabs are used here for the illustrations and examples that follow.
The Time Axis tab is organized into five (5) sub-tabs that are described in the sub-sections that follow. Each sub-tab has its own control groups and sub-control groups. However, for the Top Level, Middle Level, and Bottom Level sub-tabs these control groups and sub-control groups are essentially the same.
The Format sub-tab contains several new features dealing with: (1) Day of the Week curtains, (2) Non-Working Time Curtains, (3) Defining Working and Non-Working Hours, and (4) A Grid for Managing Curtains and Timespans.
