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.

How can you make the bars on the Ghant Chart Deeper (More Width) I can get the rows in the columns bigger but not the bars on the Ghant Chart, surely this can be done for large presentations?

Robert, Primavera bar styles are essentially thin or thinner. It doesn't have much flexibility in presentation. I've actually used the product that I've developed Turbo-Chart to be abel to produce Gantt style charts from P6 data, and you can effectively set bars to be as thick as you like. It does require some creativity and discipline in applying codes/UDF values into P6 however, its explained here:  https://www.turbo-chart.com/turbo-chart-gantt-charts/

I think it is not possible to set bar height in P6.

the workaround is to use 2 bars for each activity
