When I display a timeline and click on the ‘Existing tasks’ button on the Format tab, only the first summary task with all its subtasks is displayed, all other subsequent summary tasks and subtasks are not shown. Although I can add the other tasks by rightclicking the taskname and choosing ‘Add to timeline’. I tried to remove the timeline view from the local environment in Organizer, so it should be replaced by the global version, but that didn’t help. This phenomenom occurs in all my projects. So I suspected a corrupt global.mpt file and tried to repair and reinstall MSP, but that didn’t help either.
I’m using the non-subscription version of MSP 2016 Professional 64-bit v. 16,0,9126,2152 on WIndows 10
The feature has been OK for years, but I had to reinstall earlier this month because I had some instability problems.
I had to do several uninstalls/reinstalls. First the uninstall did not work, then I had problems reinstalling. I also used the Microsoft Fix-it tool for Office 2016. Have tried repairing with online download. Finally everything is reinstalled and working fine, except this ‘Existing tasks’ feature
