On Android and iOS versions use a long press to select another item. Just hold your finger on the item a little longer than when you tap.
On Windows, macOS and Web versions you can also use the following methods:
- hold Ctrl while clicking items with your mouse to select more individual items
- hold Shift to select groups of items in-between previously selected and the newly selected item.
This works in all lists (tasks, resources, calendars) and bars representing tasks in the Gantt chart.
- If you have an item (task, resource or calendar) selected, clicking on + button inserts a new item below the selected one.
- If you have multiple items selected, clicking on + button inserts a new button below all of them.
- If no items are selected, clicking on + button adds a new item to the end of the list.
There are multiple ways to see tasks in Ingantt. The following task views are available:
- Split Screen
- With Sidebar
- Triple View
- Gantt Chart Only
- List Only
All these views are fully functional, meaning that you can do every action available for tasks in any view, even when you use Gantt Chart Only view. Just use the ability to select multiple items anywhere: in the task list or the Gantt chart, as well as the ability to open Task Properties by double tapping/clicking (in the list and the chart).
Columns in all lists of tasks (Split Screen, Triple View or List Only views) can be turned on or off as well as rearranged using the Options dialog (Task Columns tab).
Ingantt can open local files in Microsoft Project’s MPP format (“.mpp” extension). If you make changes to such a file, they are saved by Ingantt in a new file using XML format which can also be opened by Microsoft Project.
To open MPP files Ingantt sends them through a secure connection to Ingantt web service which converts them to XML format. Your files are not stored on the service. Internet connection is required.
Ingantt outputs your Gantt chart as a PDF file when Printable PDF… is chosen in the main menu. This file can be opened in your PDF reader app and then printed using the available printing functionality in that app.
The file is generated using the same options as the Gantt chart in the user interface. This means, for example, that if the names of your tasks are set to be not visible in the Options dialog, task names in the generated PDF file will not be shown as well. Also, when you zoom in or out the Gantt chart in the user interface, the resulting PDF file has the same zoom settings.
If the locale of your device is set to one of the supported languages, Ingantt uses the language in the user interface.
The following user interface languages are supported by Ingantt:
If the locale of your device is set to none of the supported languages, Ingantt uses English in the user interface.
Regardless of the language of the user interface, you can use any language in your task names and other texts within your schedules.
