Event dialog updates, new shape behavior




We rolled out several improvements to Preceden's event dialog window:

The Start Date and End Date fields are now on the same row (which reduces the overall height of the dialog), and there's now a Shape picker, something that had previously been buried under the additional options.

We've also changed how shapes work. Previously, you could set a Default Shape for the timeline and then optionally override that default for individual events. This was somewhat confusing though so we've changed it to work like this:

  • The Default Shape determines the shape that is initially selected when you go to create a new event
  • You can use the shape picker to change the event's shape to something else if you don't want to use the default

So it's mostly the same, there's just no longer this concept of an event inheriting a shape from the timeline settings, which winds up making the behavior easier to reason about.
