Thank you! Very nice. I am new to project management and am working on a plan for a software project I am on.

I've really messed up my plan by playing with it I guess. I've baselined, added a bunch of tasks, turned them into groups, assigned to myself as a resource, levelled, etc. Here is where I stand:

1) I constantly turn tasks into groups by tabbing when I was trying to get to the duration field.

2) i changed my start date to last week (since I had started on some tasks) and then marked a 1w task as 100% complete, but the other tasks still showed as starting after the original ending of that task. I guess I have to manually change the end date independantly of changing the % done?

3) Now somehow some tasks are showing started and finishing in the past, but not complete, when they should come after other tasks (as ordered inthe task list) I can't seem to get them to level in order anymore.

4) I had connected my first two tasks to try that out, but now I can't disconnect them (to see if this affects #3)

5) in b2 I could click and hold down the assign toolbar button to choose a resource, now it does nothing. Single clicking removes the assigned resource.

6) I have two tasks that auto leveled to me doing them both at the same time. I can't figure out why.

I'll keep poking at it :)
