Indent and Outdent bugs

I'm sorry to say that this product is NOT user friendly. I downloaded the app last evening and started to populate tasks within the "Name" field. I then wanted to create the hierarchy and add subtasks but every time I "Outdented" a task, the task was removed from the line and taken to the bottom of the all of the tasks. I tried working with it several different times and have just been frustrated with my results. Also, the mouse scroll does not work on the page, but I have to go to the side bar to scroll - Frustrating. 

**** Note***  Scrolling works both Vertical Up/Down and Horizontal to the right  

Spreadsheet:   select a Cell in the spreadsheet and FN UP/Down Arrow

Right side of Application with scroll bar:  cursor over and use the scroll wheel and it will go up/down

Gantt Chart: default scroll wheel will go to the right to tract the Tasks on the timeline

Resource spreadsheet:  default scroll wheel goes up and down as it is not a timeline based view.

Thank you for the comment.  We are actually rewriting ProjectLibre and will be allowing for the user do drag and drop in the spreadsheet.  The user interface will be enhanced.  However, if you have a hierarchy with indented subtasks.... and outdent a task it will move to the end.  You don't want a Summary tasks with the sub-tasks indented below with another Summary task inserted in the middle of all the subtasks.... it is working properly.

When you scroll on a Gantt chart it does move to the right. If you want to find a task far out in the future you can also use the "Scroll to Task" icon.

If you want to have it scroll the spreadsheet vertically: use Function and dwn or up this scrolls up and down the spreadsheet rows.

Hi everyone!
Is there any improvements to use mouse to scroll down and up? Loving project libre, but it is really frustranting not to be able to scroll with the mouse.

Thanks for your message.... we have both people wanting to scroll left/right since there is so much data on each task but then there is also people like you interested in the up down.... for now you can use Function up down and it will scroll vertically.
