I know it's a a small screen cap but you can see the issue I'm trying to fix.


Notice that some of the tasks are Red Text and others are black. I have no control over what the color is when creating a new task. It's radomly created when I save the task.




Thanks

That is an automatic formatting rule. If the tasks are overdue, the red color is "normal", but if they are not overdue, right-click on the row of field names at the top of the Tasks and choose Custom... then Automatic formatting. Any custom automatic formatting rules? (If you don't get a delete button on the right when you select a rule, it's a default format. those can only be reset.)
