Bars are not maintaining format changes. They go back to the default color after I save my project, close and re-open. If you try to select over a certain number of activities and change the bar color, the change will not be saved. Upon closing and reopening the project some of the activity bars will revert to the default color. (Some users have reported this quantity of activities to be 100, while others have reported 240. The exact number depends on the project itself and the specific factors determining that maximum have not been identified.)

To duplicate:
1. Open a SureTrak type project with 240 or more activities in it.
2. Choose, Edit, Select All to highlight all of the activities.
3. Choose Format, Selected Bars, Modify Selected Bars.
4. Change the color.
For example:  Before Saving:

5. The color of all of the bars should have changed.
6. Close and save the project.
7. Re-open the project and look at the bottom few activities. They will have reverted back to their original colors.
For Example:  After saving:
