38 Find Items with the Same Date
In 24 About Organizing Items, you learned about the Timeline, which is a graph that appears above the photo well. On the Timeline are bars representing how many items in the catalog originated in various months. Specifically, this is the number of items whose file dates (not import date or modified date) fall within that month. You can see which month represents the largest number of media files by looking for the tallest bar on the Timeline. By clicking a bar, you can instantly jump to that month of items in the catalog. Notice that the Timeline does not limit the display of items when you simply click a particular bar; however, the Timeline can be used to display only those items that fall within a particular date range if you like.
At either end of the Timeline are scroll arrows; use these arrows to scroll through the years. Next to the scroll arrows are range markers, which mark the range of file dates associated with the items currently displayed in the photo well. By dragging these range markers inward, you can limit the number of items displayed in the photo well (only items whose file dates fall between the dates represented by the range markers on the Timeline are displayed in the photo well). The range markers on the Timeline enable you to limit the display range to specific months. You can limit this range even further, to specific days, by using the Set Date Range dialog box as discussed in this task.
