Andreas, is it possible to add a button for setting playback speed? Double Speed, Realtime, 1/2 speed, 1/4 speed etc...I think it would be a very useful "little" feature...just a little Button or Button Rollout.

in version 2.0.6-42 you should choose the "dark" ui scheme in the settings, you currently using the "light" scheme. in the next version of TLA its up to the user how the buttons will look, you can manipulate the colors in the settings as shown here: http://andreasmeissner.net/timelineaddon/preview/

Hi Andreas, its me again

Hi Andreas,

its me again :)
I know, its not important but if you want to give your wonderful script a little more visual appereance, you could make the Icon Backgrounds less contrastful.

Here is a actual screenshot, I mean the white Boxes behind the Icons:

I would make every Background Boxes like the first Background Box behind the "TLA" Icon: GRAY...than you have less contrast + every Box look similiar...that would give your great script a good visual touch because the white boxes look really ugly if using black UI Theme.

Just my 2 Cents...hope this Idea helps to improve your already awesome script.

PS: The New Bookmark List is a awesome Idea...It does not waste space like the old bookmark time line + its user friendly. Keep up your good work!

Best Regards.

@Ankebut: thats not possible

@Ankebut: thats not possible via scripting, but of course you can expand the command panel.

currently I got my hands on a custom updater for TLA that checks, downloads, extracts and installs the latest version of TLA.
