Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hello,

I was hoping someone can help. I have had to add a substantial number activities to my programme due to client variations and I have now linked all of the activities. The trouble is my programme now looks like a spiders web due to the large number of diagonal links. Is there a way to format the appearance of links so they are drawn in a horizontal and vertical fashion? Any help or advice would be gladly received.

 

Thanks in advance

 

David

Hi David - welcome to planning planet.

Use the Curved Link function so that every vertical link is shown curved.

Also you can hide all non driving diagonal links.

Makes everything much clearer.

Best regards
