Format views; work with styles

To customize the appearance of your project iTaskX offers wide range of functions:

Standard styles for text, bars, boxes...

In iTaskX you can find all format settings in the „View Options and Styles” window Format Window. In this window you see on the left side all views with the used styles. If you select a view you see on the right side of this window all available format options which are only for this view. Except for the part „Global Settings” which are used in all views.
Under each view you find the used standard styles which can be used in multiple views. For example, „Normal Task” is used in the „Gantt Chart”, „Task Sheet”, „Task Usage”... That means if you edit, for example, the style „Normal Task" all views which use this style are affected.
