The exception I hinted at happens when you move a lower-level task to follow
a summary task. For example, a second-level task that you move to
immediately follow a summary task stays at the second level rather than take on the
summary task level of the task that now precedes it because there’s only one
summary task.
Using the click-and-drag method
If you ask me, click-and-drag is to computing what the remote control is to
television. It’s a quick, no-brainer method of moving stuff around in software
that just makes life simpler. Here’s an example: The quickest way to move a
task in an outline is to use the click-and-drag method.
To move a task up and down with the click-and-drag method, follow these steps:
1. Display a columnar view, such as Gantt Chart view.
2. Select a task by clicking its task ID number.
3. Drag the task to where you want it to appear in the outline.
A gray line appears, indicating the new task position, as shown in
Figure 5-4.
