Errant description - Design Guidance - Timeline View - page32

The following description is incorrect for a valid timeline sample (second on the page), or the sample is marked valid in error:

In this incorrect example, the label of the first entry on the first row extends beyond the starting point of the next two entries, and so the overlapped labels are not displayed. The label of the first entry on the second row extends beyond the starting point of the next entry, which is similarly not displayed. The vertical lines of the hidden labels extend to the lower edge of the labels above, and additional visual indication is provided in the form of a ‘shadow’ label decoration. (TLN-0520)

Thank you very much for reporting this mistake - the description for the second example on page 32 should indeed read "In this CORRECT example..."

Best regards,
