Help finding “invisible” symbols
I have deleted some symbols from a schedule , but there are several blank symbols scattered around and I’m having trouble finding them.

Vertical connectors in the legend
Can I show a vertical connector in the legend?

Want the line to appear on top of the bar when graphed
I would like to have the red line appear on top of the blue bars.  How is this accomplished?

Hide indicator symbols on blank lines
I have indicator symbol values that are “0”. How do I get Milestones Professional NOT to draw an indicator symbol on lines that are blank?

Add, Move, and Delete Freeform Text
Is there a way to add another header to the chart other than the title?

Copy the structure of a schedule only
Could you tell me if it is possible to copy the structure of a schedule without the data?.

Unidentified blue box

Specifying print size
I have the chart size set to 7.5″ horizontal and 5.5.” vertical. However, when I print the chart, it fills the entire page, rather than printing at the size I have specified.  How can I get it to print using my specifications?

Standard curtains for all my projects
I would like the same curtains to appear on all of my schedules.  How can I do this?

Special symbol needed
I would really like to show a symbol that looks like this one on my schedule.  Is it possible?

Show percent symbol on a task row
I see that it is possible to add a pie symbol to a task row as a normal symbol.  Can you tell me how to set this up?</p
