Opening an EXISTING Chart - OnePager Pro Add-in for Version 7.0
Overview Flow Chart
Once charts are created, they can be re-opened from the OnePager Pro Start form. The purpose of this scenario is to retrieve a chart for inclusion in another presentation or to further edit the chart.
This methodology does not import new or old data from Microsoft Project, however, Microsoft Project needs to be launched so that you can access the OnePager Pro button on the Microsoft Project ADD-INS ribbon tool bar tab.
As an alternative, you can double-click on the desired chart’s .TAM file to open an existing chart as described in the article at Opening an EXISTING Chart - OnePager Pro Desktop.
The steps to open an EXISTING chart from within Microsoft Project are shown below:
Launch Microsoft Project. With Microsoft Project running, launch OnePager and click the OPEN button on the OnePager Pro Start form. OnePager displays a list of recently-used charts and a BROWSE FILES… option. If you click BROWSE FILES…, you access a Windows Open form where you can select a chart to open.
Selecting a chart to open tells OnePager to load the chart and display it in the Chart Editor. Source plan data will not be imported from the selected Microsoft Project source plan. Once the chart is displayed and available, you can edit, save, and copy the chart to a Microsoft PowerPoint slide or elsewhere as described previously. When a chart with multiple snapshots is opened, you can switch between snapshots. There are two methods to do this.
- 1) The first is to use the forward/back arrows on the OnePager View ribbon tool bar tab to move between snapshot dates.
- 2) The second method is to click the List All button on the View ribbon tool bar tab which displays a list of all available snapshot dates for the chart as shown below:
In addition to editing the opened chart and switching between snapshots, you can also use the OnePager Data ribbon tool bar tab to replace snapshots, add snapshots, and perform custom updates. The OnePager Data ribbon tool bar tab appears as shown below:
