Compress / skip time in timing diagram

In the timing diagram, short events become very small (looking instantaneous) when having long total durations.

As a solution, one could add the possibility to cut out the range between two times, so that timesteps are eluded.

This could work like  the ... "skipping time" ... in sequence diagrams. Start and end of the skipped times would be required. Furthermore no signal change can happen within the skipped time.

I signed up to request for the exact same feature!

A sample of what I am looking for is at https://rheingoldheavy.com/timing-diagram-basics/ Where the period from 12 to 19 is skipped.

I have a diagram in which every event is in ms but one blocking event runs for seconds without the ability to compress the time for this event the tool tries to render a very large graph and fails.
