Change the color of a single symbol

Question 1:     

How can I change the color of a single symbol on the schedule?


Question 2:

I am trying to change the fill color of a selected symbol.  I have made the change in the Selection/Size/Color tab /Symbol fill color on the Override Symbol and Bar Colors section, but it will not display in the page as the new selected color.  I can see that it is changed on the tab above, and on the Symbol properties page, but not in the actual chart.  Please let me know what I am doing incorrectly.


Answer 1:

  1. Click once on a symbol which is on the schedule to select it.
  2. Click the Size/Color tab.
  3. Click the color for Symbol Fill Color to change it. 




Answer 2:

On the Dates tab, check to see if the Symbols: Fill to Status Date selection is checked.  If so, all symbols after the status date will be either hollow or filled with the color specified for that symbol type in the toolbox.
