Displaying Holidays

Holidays, weekends, and any user-defined non-workday days can be displayed tabularly in a list or graphically on the canvas using either vertical shading or a horizontal line. On the line, holidays, weekends, and non-working periods will be displayed as red notches or rectangles; weather days will show up as blue notches or rectangles. On the canvas, holidays and weekend will be displayed in light gray; weather days will be displayed in dark gray. Either way, all holidays will always be based on the default calendar for the schedule. For more info, see Default Properties.
