Definition of dependencies between jobs

Hello everyone,
I'm using MindManager 2017 to get my project structured and elaborated a PSP. Currently I'm about to define dependencies between the several work packages. I watched a tutorial on YouTube (version 2018), once the start and end dates of the work packages are set you can click on Gantt Pro to open the Gantt chart. There you can doubleclick the single Gantt bars and a menu opens where all the dependencies related to that work packages can be defined. In my case this does not work. The menu does not open after doubleclicking the bar. The only way I can define dependencies is in the main view (map), which is not very convenient. Is this a version issue or do I have to change the settings at a certain point? Thank you very much in advance for your support!
Cheers Moritz

Hello Moritz

The task editing dialogue in Gantt Pro was introduced at MindManager 2018. However, you can still define Finish-to-Start dependencies in the Gantt Pro chart in MindManager 2017. Click on a successor task to select it first, then click again and drag & drop it onto a predecessor. This will create a Finish-to-Start dependency from the predecessor to the successor. To remove a dependency, do the same thing.
