Symbols are hollow


I am selecting a red symbol and black connector in the Toolbox.  However, when I add them to my schedule, the symbol appears hollow and so does the connector.  Why can't I get solid, color symbols and connectors?



Milestones has a feature called "fill to status date" which, when turned on, causes the bars to be hollow after the current date.

Fortunately there is an easy solution:

  1. Go to the Dates tab.

  2. Bars: Fill to Status Date to turn off this feature for horizontal bars.

  3. Symbols: Fill to Status Date to turn off this feature for symbols.
