Here's a question our support team
answered that we thought we would pass on to you.
Q: I want
to display a heading that displays a sort of logarithmic time scale. I want to show

Remember to select the
Custom Heading is Embedded in Schedule Option! This will ensure that your schedule
is portable. If you don't choose this option, the heading information is stored in
an external file which may not be accessible to you on other computers.
