view timeline / table

Some comments on view timeline:
- All information about events is now directly visible in the timeline; I think this gives not a very clear overview, I would suggest that clicking on / moving over a certain event make the extra information visible.
- If the control box is marked the report in the timeline is control = true. Maybe just the word "control" is enough, control = true is a bit strange / computer language.
- time periods (like fasting periods) are given in seconds..
- if you don't fill in extra event fields, there are still brackets in the timeline behind the event. If you for example give only the timepoint of euthanasia then in the timline "euthanasia ()" is shown.
- in timline and table no units are shown
- on the timeline time should be relative or at least have the possibility to be relative. A study design in realtive time is not necessarily implemented in exact the same way in real time. For example, if you have different groups of subjects and the first group got some diet for 1 week, the second for 2 weeks and so on, in the design they can all start at the same time and some stop after a week and some after 2 weeks. But in reality maybe the group that got the diet for 1 week started in april and the group that got the diet for 2 weeks started in march.
If you couple the start date from the study to the relative time design and converse the relative design to real data, you are actually saying things happened at some particular day that did not happen at that day.
- events that happen at an instant time / have no duration are not well visualised in the timeline: only text is visible and where the text starts the event starts. Previously events were visualised by a dot, it would be nice to have that again. Sampling events are still visualised by a dot.
- in the events table no time is visualized. So an event that happens at different times to the same group is just listed different times, without any distinction between them. The distinctive element between these events is time, so why not show the corresponding time also?
