Custom bar styles for summary baselines reset themselves RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm having trouble with custom bar styles in the gantt view, specifically bar styles relating to summary baselines.

    After changing the appearance of the "Baseline Summary" bar style in the bar styles dialog box, it reverts back to its default if I toggle the baseline on and off from the Format tab. 

    If you stop displaying the baseline, the row for the "Baseline Summary" in the bar styles dialog box actually disappears, and then reappears with its default settings once you toggle the baseline on again. 

    Anybody know how to fix this, or what I'm doing wrong?

    I'm using Project Online Professional 2016 on windows 10

  • Hi Tom,

    When you apply the formatting via the check box, project amends the bars styles (Format Tab, Format, Bar Styles).  So any changes you have made might be overwritten, but I cannot replicate your issue re summary tasks.  Certainly in the tracking Gantt, when I uncheck the Critical Tasks checkbox in formatting, it removes those bars (you can check this in Format | Format | Bar Styles.
