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.

Hi

Is it posible in MSP2013 to make a plain old heading?

I just want a title (not header) above sections of some of my tasks, I don't want a date or duration or anything assigned to them, just a plain old title at certain sections. 

The only thing I've found of help on the internet is to summarise them in a hammock bar.  But that will make my Gantt chart untiday as I dont want hammocks everywhere. 

I know it was do-able in Asta Powerproject, is it possible in MSP please?

You can enter a placeholder task (a manually scheduled task with no duration and start/finish dates, instead, just blank). Set task mode to manual and then format the task name as a header.

I'm guessing it's not possible
