Update task dependencies and dates automatically

How can I auto-update the dates in task that have dependencies? When I change the start date of a task the start task of the dependent task is not automatically updated. If I delete/create the dependency it is updated. Also, if I set the date of the dependent task to "Today" it is also updated correctly.
Anyone else seen this (and know how to auto-update)?
I am using Mindjet 11

The date of a dependent task should be updated automatically, when you change the startdate of the previous task later in time (and it is a finish to start dependency).

But when you change the date of the previous task earlier in time, the date of the dependent task does not change (because it still starts after the other task has finished). If you want to start it immediately after the previous task, you have to change the date of the dependent task yourself.

Perhaps an idea for new release to always start dependent tasks immediately after the previous tasks ends, without any delay (in finish to start dependencies)?

Thanks, Esther! This matches my findings :)

I like your idea for a future release.
