1) cloning a task with copy/paste (the pred/succ were not cloned)
2) used ‘fill-down’ to clone the pred/succ values
3) deleted one of the predecessors in the clone
4) inactivated each clone to examine the impacts
What I found is that the knock-on effects of deleting the predecessor in the clone are different than eliminating that same predecessor in the original task when each one is ‘active’. This surprises me, but maybe I shouldn’t be. Does anyone have any idea why the two versions would have different downstream effects?
BTW, this is in a master project with 4 sub-projects in Project Pro 2016.
