  • Your description of the situation is very brief, so it is difficult to be very helpful, However, I can say that I would never attempt to split a task by dragging the bars with the mouse. It is just too difficult to be accurate, and just too easy to make a mistake such as dragging the wrong bar or otherwise make a mess. Sure, I know that the software allows it, but it doesn't work, not a good practice etc. It would be better to simply make another task and call your tasks "stage 1" and "stage 2" or similar. A simple, easy solution which always works.

    Any help?
