Main window overview

The Main or Project/Report window is the first one you see when you open GanttPV. You will automatically exit GanttPV when the Main window is closed. It is your Project/Report control center. Use this window to create new projects, create new reports. and to open report windows. Double click a report to open it or select it and press "Enter".

There are two main types of reports. Reports that apply to all projects (for example, holiday or resource reports) and reports that are linked to a specific project (usually task or gantt chart reports). The "All Project" reports are grouped under a special project called "All Projects" (unless it has been renamed -- it can always be recognized by its project ID of "1").
