    What is it? I would assume it would be a 3D timeline...but how would I make one? It's for a school project. Thanks.

    My own conception of a timeline is of a one-dimensional timeline, i.e., events placed somewhere on a stright line.

    Now two-dimensional implies two variables: time and another one (could be place, or temperature, etc).

    Three-dimensional thus needs three variables, and it wouldn't be called a timeline, as would also be the two-dimensionnal one: they would rather be 2D ans 3D graphs.

    But I'm just a college student, maybe there is another answer...

    That explains a lot.

    (I don't want to enter into arguing, but for me, this is 3D rather than three-dimensional...)

    I saw that. I don't use OS X, though.

    Thanks for the help, guys.
