Zooming Into Your Timeline

Preceden provides two easy ways to zoom into a portion of your timeline:

1) Click and drag to select a period of time

Click anywhere on your timeline then drag your cursor to the left or right to select a range of time:

Preceden will then zoom into that period of time. To zoom back out, click the Zoom Out button that will appear on the top right of your timeline:

You can continue zooming in like this until you get down to the hour scale at which point you won't be able to zoom in any more.

2) Manually set a date range in the Zoom Settings

You can also set a date range by clicking Settings then clicking the Zoom section. You can then click Zoom in to a specific date range and choose specific dates.


  • Regardless of whether method you choose to zoom, Preceden won't necessarily use the exact dates you selected. It will automatically add some padding to the content and try to avoid cutting off event names that would otherwise appear half on/half off your timeline.
  • Also, if you are zoomed into a portion of your timeline and then add an event that isn't visible on that portion of your timeline, Preceden will automatically zoom out so that the newly-added event is visible.

If you encounter any strange issues with zooming please don't hesitate to reach out at help@preceden.com.
