Default Links to several milestones on same line of a Gantt chart


I've plotted 4 milestones on the same line by using the rollup options to roll the subtasks to the summary and then collapsing the sub-tasks view. But by doing so, the predecessor dependency links disappear if I have to print chart. Is it possible to have the dependency links to point to their respective milestones on the summary bar itself?

Thanks

Hi
You can have dependency links on a Summary task, however it is not good practice to do so as it would be unclear which of the child tasks the dependency actually applies to.
If you are using Project 2010 you can actually copy selective tasks to a Timeline chart which may give you what you want.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Tony. I am using Project 2007. Can I do what you suggested with that version and if yes, how?

The reason why I grouped my milestones as sub-tasks and used roll-up is just for display purposes so that I can get all of them on one line. But if there is any other way to 'draw' 4 milestones on a single line and have the links pointing to each of them, please let me know.

Sorry for the basic questions. It's my first time using Microsoft Project and I am just using it to draw a good gantt chart, but not actually managing the project with it.. at least not yet.

Hi Viv
Unfortunately that functionality is not available in 2007. However if you are happy to post a copy of your plan with instructions on what you want to achieve I will take a look and post some instructions back to you.
