Description of the Project 2013 hotfix package (Project-x-none.msp): June 11, 2013

This article describes the issue that is fixed in the Microsoft Project 2013 hotfix package that is dated June 11, 2013.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a task that contains a long task name in a project in Project 2013.

    • The task name is wrapped in a new row.

    • You print or print preview the project.

    In this scenario, the long task name is truncated unexpectedly.

    Note The expected action is that the task name is wrapped.

  • You try to paste some data in the timescale pane on the right side of a usage view in Project 2013. For example, you try to paste work values into the resource usage view. However, the data is not pasted.

  • It takes longer than expected to open a project that is located on a network share in Project 2013.

  • You set a Gantt chart bar to have a hollow middle pattern. When you print or print preview the project, the Gantt bar of the task does not appear.
