How is the Storyline timeline supposed to work?

Hi,

New to storyline - I'm wondering how the timeline is supposed to work.

In storyline, everything I place on the timeline is always visible regardless of where the playhead is. This makes it very difficult to set timings.

Other timeline-oriented products don't work that way - you only see content when the playhead reaches it.

Is this how the Storyline timeline is supposed to work? 

I'm running Storyline on a VMware Fusion VM on a Macintosh. It is a full-fledged Windows installation.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

What you describe is how it does work. Many people think this does not meet the definition of "supposed to work".
