I am a newbie in MindManager so sorry if it is a stupid question.

I have a Topic A with two subtopics B and C.

I try to create a relationship between B an C (The relationship arrow goes from B to C). I want C to be dependent of B so the start date of B would be the enddate of B or if B is finished then the B startdate should be the finishing date of B. I guess this is called finish to start dependency, but whatever I do the dependency drop down box in Task Info is greyed out.

How to do it correct?

Hello Jørgen

For the dependency dropdown to be active, both topics need to be tasks, and both selected. You can select the first one by clicking on it then Ctrl+Click to add the second.


Oddly enough I was able to establish a start to finish dependency (and was able to select the other dependency options) between two topics that weren't tasks, which I wasn't expecting.
