This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project 2013 hotfix package that is dated September 9, 2014.
Issues that this hotfix package fixes
Consider the following scenario:
You create a project plan, and assign a Work value to a task.
You do not assign any resources to the task.
You publish the project plan to a Project Server 2013 server where the Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets option is enabled on the Task Settings and Display page in Project Web App.
In this scenario, when you assign an enterprise resource to the task, the value for total work in the Work field may be changed to zero.
Assume that you add a task, resource or assignment note that contains many lines of text. When you print the project, you select the Print notes check box on the View tab of Page Setup. In this situation, the last line of the note may not be printed.
Consider the following scenario:
You install the April 2014 cumulative update for Project Server 2013.
You do not set the Open Project Template global permission on the Add or Edit Group page in Project Web App.
In this scenario, Project may crash when you try to connect to the Project server.
Views, tables, filters and groups that are added to Enterprise Global do not save the Show in Menu option correctly. Therefore, this option is always enabled.
