We would like to be able to specify a break in the timing diagram. Its fairly common that some actions will take place in groups, but spread out over long periods of time. So having a diagram do something for 10 ticks, then skip or break, and resume at 200 ticks is a must have feature. There is already provisions for hiding signals in the diagram, so a skip could just simply hide all signals for a time specified. 

Here is an example of skipping for some elapsed time

This feature has been requested a few times before and gotten no traction. See links below.

If this is implemented. I will make a promise to update the website with an example diagram
