Is there a function, which assigns the WBS # automatically based upon the task outline (like MS Project does)?  Or is it manual entry only?  Thanks.

I moved to using ProjectLibre on macOS. I like the interface a lot but I really miss having WBS automatically added and renumbered as I work on the project.

Is this function in 2021 available already or coming soon?

Thanks, Max

I have added the WBS numbering manually into the WBS column. I cannot get it to show in the WBS.

Autonumbering would be awesome, but in the meantime, how can I put the numbers into WBS manually?

In ProjectLibre the WBS structure is created by the indentation. I started in PM sofware in the mainframe days there graphics were not readily availble and the WBS was numbered as you are looking for..... We like that and have a WBS column in the spreadsheet but that is primarily for integation with 3rd party software. It is useful but not as much within ProjectLibre itself.

I don't mind creating and entering my own WBS numbers in then WBS field.
It would be great if there could be an option to display that field on the WBS chart.
