Project Intro Intermediate course

Microsoft Project Amend Legend

I can amend the text part of the Legend but not the part of the legend that has graphics in it. Can this be done if so how?

For upcoming training course dates see: Pricing & availability

RE: Microsoft Project Amend Legend

Hi Ron,

Thank you for your question.

The Legend in print preview picks up the inofrmation from Format Bar Styles.

If you want to amend how the legend looks, go to Format and Bar Styles. In this screen you can rename the different bars and when you change the colours of the bars it will update your legend.

If you want to exclude a bar from the legend, then go to Format Bar Styles and add an asterix next to the name and it will be hidden from the legend.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks. Just perfect.


Ms project tip:

Avoid Accidental Constraints

The initial default table is the Entry table. Enter a task name and duration, but do not enter start or finish dates. Form the plan using links, predecessors. Typing dates introduces constraints. To remove these constraints, double click on a task, and on the Advanced page of Task Information set the constraint back to As Soon As Possible (all other options are there too.)
