How to change the highlight color. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When we make changes to the dates or times on a task, Project 2013 will change dates and/or times on linked tasks further down the line.  These changes are highlighted in the Spreadsheet part (left side) of the Gantt view.  The default lite blue highlight color is VERY difficult to see for some of my users.  How can I change the highlight color for just that function?

  • Albion,

    Very easy, just go to Format/Format group and click on the Text Styles icon. In the Text Styles window click on the Item to Change selection box and select "Changed Cells". Select the Background color and hit OK.

    Hope this helps.
