I see.

There is an easy solution for that, at least for the moment: enabling
zooming. I just did that, and you can now use zooming in a timeline
plot to select a narrower yaxis range or just view a particular area
in detail. A single click resets the zoom level.

If that is not enough, we can discuss a better solution when you have more time.
