Network Diagram Options Window
This window provides access to the settings and options available for
network diagram reports. By changing values in this window, you can create and
customize reports to meet your specific needs. Note that some options may
be unavailable if the active project does not
contain the appropriate data. Also, if data unique to a specific project are
required by a report, that report may fail when generated for a different
Note that reports can be generated and viewed to verify the results before
any changes are saved. Access to the source code is also provided.
For a description of standard report options, see the "Standard Options" section.

The Zone Variable is used to divide the network diagram into
horizontal bands or zones corresponding to the distinct values of the variable.
Most projects have at least one natural classification of the different activities
in the project: department, type of work involved, location of the activity, and
so on. By specifying a zone variable, you can use this classification to subdivide
the network diagram. The zones are automatically labeled with the zone variable
values and are separated by dividing lines. Use the Zone
button to select a zone variable.
When this button is pressed, highlighted selections in the Identifier
and Zone lists are deleted.
This option is used to specify the resolution of the network diagram report.
The report can be produced with either lineprinter, fullscreen, or graphics-quality
This option is used to specify which observations are used to produce the network
diagram. For hierarchical projects, selecting Leaf Tasks Only means that only
the lowest level tasks appear in the network diagram. When All Tasks is
specified, all tasks (regardless of their hierarchical relationship) appear
in the network diagram as separate nodes.
By pressing this button, you can access a window containing color options
for the network diagram report. These options are used to
control the colors of different portions of the network diagram. Note
