How to make the bar text easier to read on the timeline of MS Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know a way to make the bar text easier to read on the timeline of MS Project? It seems that there can be only one line for the text, the 2nd line is for the date. Can another line be added to accommodate more characters? I want to avoid using callout. Thanks!

  • Emily Clarkson,

    You can have multiple lines for the task Name, (select Text Lines in the Show/Hide group of the Timeline Format), but I'm afraid you can only display the Name and Start and Finish fields, and the latter two are dependent on the Date Format and whether there is enough duration to accommodate both the Start and Finish as they are displayed on a single line.

    There is no advantage to using a callout

    Hope this helps.
