When I try to move a task’s start date to the past it doesn’t move. It creates a greyish bar in advance of the task and changes the constraint date. Task has no dependencies.
Today: 2 Sep 17
I’ve tried setting
Project Start: 1 Jan 17
Editing Date: 1 6 17
I’ve deleted the start constraint, but when I try to slide the task or type in the new start date to 1 Sep 17 it leaves the task where it is and adds the grey bar and creates a new constraint. I’m in trial mode and the behaviour is the same whether I emulate standard or pro mode.
I’ve been on the web - others have this problem. The main solution seems to be to change project start or edit date; I’ve tried these but neither works.
OmniPlan is no use to me if I can’t create activities in the past, or even set actual completion in the past.
