CUSTOMIZE ONE OF THE BUILT-IN WIZARD FORMATS
Q
I have imported a schedule from Microsoft Project and everything looks great.  I am now moving a symbol on one of the task lines in Milestones.  It's at the beginning of one of the rows.  Moving it makes the other symbols on the row move.  Help!  
   
A
Choose the Dependency Mode option on the Dates tab.  This will turn off dependency mode, making it so that moving a single symbol won't affect others on a row.

In version 2008, the Dependency Mode check box is on the Dates toolbar.

 
 
 
CUSTOMIZE ONE OF THE BUILT-IN WIZARD FORMATS
