Customizing a Gantt chart view
Project scrolls the chart portion of the Gantt Chart view to display the Gantt bar for a
manually scheduled task that was previously added to the book launch plan. As you
can see, the Gantt bar of this manually scheduled task does not look like the Gantt
bars of the automatically scheduled tasks.
Keep an eye on this Gantt bar as you apply a different Gantt chart style to the plan.
On the Format tab, in the Gantt Chart Style group, click More to display the
predeined color styles.
The More button
The formatting options under Scheduling Styles
distinguish between manual and automatically
scheduled tasks, but the Presentation Styles do not.
The Gantt Chart styles are divided into two groups:
▪ Scheduling Styles distinguish between manually and automatically scheduled
▪ Presentation Styles do not make that distinction.
