Designer changes timer start event to none start event

Hi,

I'm new to activiti and trying to create a simple process with some activities I need for my app.
It has a timer start event, a java service task and an end event.
I cannot see how to create the timer start event in designer so I use modeller for the first version, then opened the bmpn20.xml file in designer to create the java service task.

But, when I save the process in the designer the timer start event is changed to a none start event.
Since I don't see the timer event in designer I assume the timer start event is not supported.
Is that correct?
If so, will it be, and if not, can you point me in the right direction and let me know how to create this process.

Thanks…

xml from modeller
