Cut

In case of planner products, you can use the Cut command in combination with Paste command to move tasks or resources to another destination row in your project.

You can cut:

  • entire tasks or resources corresponding to a single row in your project   or
  • multiple rows in your project corresponding to mutiple tasks or resources

   Also after you used the Cut command, you can use Paste command to move selected tasks or resources on a new empy row or use Paste command to move selected tasks or resources on the selected position, case in which the copied information is moved above the selected row.

Cut a task or resource

Although you can cut a task or resource at any time, it's best to do so before you establish task dependencies. When you cut or move a task or resource, application does not reestablish task dependencies.

   In the ID field, select the task or resource that you want to move:

       To select a row, click the task or resource ID number of the row.

       To select a group of adjacent rows, hold down SHIFT, and then click the first and last ID numbers of the group.

       To select several nonadjacent rows, hold down CTRL, and then click the ID numbers.

   To move the task or resource, click Cut option from the Task tab. There are several other ways of moving a task or resource in your project: either use CTRL+X combination on your keyboard, or select Cut Task or Cut Resource option from the contextual menu after you right click on a task/resource ID.

If there is information in the destination row, the new rows will be inserted above the destination row.

When copying a task within the same project, the task's ID numbers are regenerated. If you want to move a task within a project, drag and drop the task in the task list to maintain the task's unique ID numbers.

Note: When moving tasks or resources in your project using Cut and Paste options, you can use Undo or Redo options to go one step backward or forward relative to your recent changes.
