Unable to add a timing to a day

If I select a day with no timings in the main window, there does not appear to be any straightforward way to add a timing to that day. If a timing existed for that day, I could edit it, or duplicate it, or delete it, but there seems to be no option to simply add one.

I've attached a screenshot showing the contextual menu (there is no option in the standard menus either).

    Okay, I did find the contextual menu available by right-clicking on the task in the left-hand column. I have a feeling I've had this problem before!

    It would be nice to have the same option in the contextual menu for the timing pane as well.

    Hi Mike!

    Thanks for letting me know about this! Looking at the screenshot you sent me... the “+” button to add a timing should not be grayed out. I’ll fix this bug in the next update, which should be out soon.

    You are right. Using the contextual menu in the task list, you can also add a timing.

    Another way to manually add a timing to a task in Timelime’s main window, is to drag a timing from the task list and drop it on a specific day of the calendar in the center of the window.

    If you quickly want to add a timing to a recently used task, you can do this: Right-click on the Timelime status item in the menu bar, then push the cmd-key on the keyboard and select the task you want to add the timing to.
