April 2023 Tips and Tricks

Task outline levels
I would like to outline my schedule.  Where do I start?

Set symbols and other properties by summary level
I have a project with several outline levels.  Can I use different symbols for the different outline levels?   Can I change the shading too?

Always use transparent text

Is there any way to set up Milestones so that all the symbol text and dates are shown transparent (not opaque?)  I have to change them constantly and would like to know how to set the default up permanently.

Eliminate gray bars in roadmap format
I have just imported from Microsoft Project using the Roadmap format.  Can you tell me how to eliminate the gray bars in the resulting Milestones Professional file?

Create a template to use in with Microsoft Project
I want to create a single template I can use for multiple Microsoft Project files. Can I do this or do I have to have a template for each Microsoft Project file?

Exclude hidden tasks when filtering
I am making an upper level schedule, and am using the Split Summary Bar setting.  I would like to filter the schedule so that I can exclude certain tasks and then show just the tasks I want on the summary bar.  The problem is that when I filter, the summary bar is still showing the unwanted tasks.
