What is the best way to approach creating a schedule in Milestones Professional so I can make global changes to symbols and horizontal bars currently on the schedule?

Usually when I go to refresh a Milestones Professional schedule from Project, I am asked to select the Microsoft Project file name.  I have one schedule (only one!) which never prompts me to select a file and I wonder what’s going on.  Any ideas?

How can I have fiscal quarters and calendar year quarters, as shown above?

I need to add a page of text explaining why any scheduled date has changed. Is there a way I can link “Milestones” to a “Word” document?

I often forget where I put my Milestones schedules and have trouble finding them.  Help!

I would like to remove the password on all my Milestones Professional charts.  I have approximately 12.  Do I really have to send them to you to remove the password.

We keep our schedules in a shared folder on our server.  Can we control who has access to each Milestones schedule?

When I am importing an Microsoft Project plan, Microsoft Project loads all tasks (and Milestones) of the plan. That’s too much because the plan consists more than 2500 tasks.  Only the major work packages, not every task are relevant to the report I want from Milestones Professional.  Is there a way to only load certain tasks such as up to level 3?
