Video: Basics Training in Milestones Professional (part 1)

We’ve decided to record some longer videos that cover most of what you learn if you had bought the Basics training course on our website.
Of course these videos are not interactive (where you could ask the trainer questions), but it’s a great way to get a nice overview of Milestones Professional.

Dialog box keeps appearing
Sometimes on a schedule I get this message that pops up multiple times. Is there a way to stop it from popping up and is there any action or format I should be looking at? I click okay each time.

Clone a schedule
I have a schedule which I want to replicate for a new project. How can I make a new schedule based on a schedule I already have? The new schedule needs to be the same as the original schedule but, of course, the start date of my new project will be different.

Symbols disappear after refresh
Some of my symbols are disappearing after I refresh the schedule from Microsoft Project. Help!

Symbol text background
The area around my symbol text is blanking out parts of the symbols. Is there any way to change this?

Two digits for fiscal year date headings
I am using fiscal year date headings. Right now they are two digits. I would like to show 4 digits. How is this done?

Create your perfect Milestones toolbox
I want to create a toolbox to use with all of my schedules. Please advise.

Enlarge all symbols of a certain type
I have a bunch of green triangles on my schedule (and many other symbols as well). What I would like to do is enlarge all of the green triangles. I don’t want to change my toolbox. Is there another way to do this?

Show symbols above or below the bar
How do I add a downward pointing triangle, arrow or other symbol to the toolbox so that when added, it adds the milestone below or above the bar? I want to have a bar with several milestones above it but may also want to show milestones below the bar.
