Ms Projects Summary Task

Copper Contributor

Hi there. I have an issue with my task summary not being a straight line like it normally is. This doesn't impact my programme only the aesthetics of it. Can someone assist? I've looked into the information section and couldn't tell any difference in settings to the others. Thanks.

Hi Ee Yii
Try redefining the representation of summary tasks in the Gantt chart.
Go to Menu bar > Gantt Chart Format > Bar Styles > Format > Bar styles and select, if it exists, Summary, cut and paste at the end of the list.
If it does not exist, you will have to create it at the end of the list, as shown in the attached image.

@Ignacio_Martín Thank you for your assistance. Found the problem to be "rolled up task" bar styles instead of summary.
