Office Timeline lets you quickly reposition your milestone titles anywhere vertically on the slide. Here’s how it’s done:
Click on the milestone title you want to move and drag it vertically to a new spot as shown in the image below. This can be done for any milestone, whether it’s positioned above or below the timeband.
Once you have moved your milestone title to the desired position, click the Accept button on the ribbon to save your changes.
The add-in will automatically create a connector from the timeband to your newly positioned text box. In our example, we moved every other milestone title higher or lower on the slide to create a more uncluttered look. You can see the changes in the image below.
