         I have a timeline showing events at a millisecond granularity.  I have min zoom set to 1 seconda and max set to 30 seconds. I am able to use the scroll wheel to zoom in on this graph, but the zoom is very very slow.  Is there a way to set the speed of the zoom?  For instance i would like to be able to get from the min zoom to the max zoom or vice versa in ~20 mouse wheel clicks (right now the zoom is so slow it would probably take 1000).

    Hello Nate,

    To achieve your requirement you can disable the default zooming on mouse wheel and implement a custom one. Basically, you can get the scroll delta from the event arguments and calculate the new visible range. Then you can use the VisiblePeriodStart and VisiblePeriodEnd property of RadTimeline to manually zoom-in/out. 
    private void Timeline_PreviewMouseWheel(object sender, System.Windows.Input.MouseWheelEventArgs e)
        e.Handled = true;
        // calculate the new visible range
        // set RadTimeline's  VisiblePeriod or VisiblePeriodStart and VisiblePeriodEnd properties
