    I use format text styles to set critical task text as red. When the task is completed, it is no longer on the critical path and the text should turn back to the conventional black font. Sometimes the text turns black, other times it does not. Is this a bug or is there another reason? Thanks in advance for your insight.

    Mike – I am not able to reproduce the issue. I followed the same steps in Project Professional 2013 – changed the text style of critical tasks, marked a critical task completed, the color changed to black (the default color). Do you mean to say for some tasks the color changes and for some tasks it works correctly? Also, try clearing the formatting that might have been set on some these tasks by first selecting all the tasks, then click Task ribbon, in the Editing group click Clear .. Clear Formatting. This action will ensure any font color changed on that tasks will be cleared and the text style font color will be applied.

    Sai, clearing the formatting worked. The template were working from had some unknown formatting issues, but not anymore! Thanks very much. Mike

    I had the same problem and clearing the formatting on the task also worked for me. Thank you so much.
