Difference between status line and current date line


I have a strange line on my schedule which seems to run down the current date but tracks to the fill on the bar.  What is this line?

What is the difference between the status line and the current date line?



The current date line will draw a straight line at the current date.

The status line bulges to the left or right according to each task row's status date. Thus, the status line is a visual indicator of ahead/behind


The status date can be shown 3 ways:

Display Status line (no additional options checked)

Status line with 3 times normal height option checked:

Status line with the Row Height option checked:
