A timeline may be created in a Microsoft Word document by using the drawing toolbar. It is made available via the View tab, by pointing at the Toolbars option.
Once the drawing toolbar is opened, the process may be tailored to individual needs.
- The rectangle tool may be used to create the timeline, using the pointer to maintain a narrow width.
- The fill color tool adds color, which may be manipulated to include shading and other effects.
- The line tool can create markers and other indications on the timeline.
- A text box may be inserted into the timeline and text added to indicate the various points of interest.
