Q&A

Q1:I can't see the summary tasks in the Calendar view. How do I display them?
A1: By default, the summary tasks don't display in the Calendar view. Choose Format, Bar Styles to display the Bar Styles dialog box. In the dialog box, select Summary from the Task type list. Then change the Bar Type from None to the style of bar you want displayed for summary tasks.
Q2:How can I see my task link lines in the Calendar view?
A2: The short answer is, you can't. The Calendar view is primarily intended for viewing and printing the task list ordered by scheduled work days. Use the Gantt Chart or the Network Diagram view to display and print task links.
Q3:Besides moving the task nodes in the Network Diagram view, is there another way to display more task nodes on each printed page?
A3: You can use the scaling feature on the Page tab of the Page Setup dialog box to shrink the number of printed pages. When you scale the display, and the Adjust for Page Breaks option under the Layout command on the Format menu is turned on, Project will automatically move nodes to the right and down if the nodes land on a page break. Use the Format, Layout Now command to see the result. Printing views is described in Hour 10, "Finalizing and Printing Your Schedule."
Q4:When I zoom out to see more nodes in the Network Diagram I can't read any of the field information. Is there another way to see the name of a selected task without having to zoom in and out?
A4: Position the mouse over any task node and pause. The contents of the node or a particular field in the node will be displayed in an enlarged pop-up box onscreen.
