Can't drag between tasks to create links in Project 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I was using Project 2013, I was able to create links by dragging between tasks. When you click and drag on the middle of the task bar of one task to another it used to create a Start-to-Finish link between the two. Now that I'm using Project 2016 it's not working. I can't figure out why.

  • Hi Lionel,

    This is a known issue with Click 2 Run installations of Project 2016, but appears to be happening for .msi installations too.

  • Thanks Ben,

    Please excuse my ignorance but what is Click2Run vs .msi. If this is a know issue does that mean that there is currently no known solution?

  • If you have bought Project Pro for O365 as part of an O365 subscription then you have click to run.

    If you installed Project Professional 2016 or Project Standard 2016 then you have the .msi installation.
