Link in or out of order
When you drag across a series of tasks and then click Link Tasks, the tasks are linked in order from the task higher in the task list (lower Task ID number) to the task lower in the task list (higher Task ID number). It doesn't matter whether you drag from top to bottom or bottom to top—the resulting links are the same. This is also true if you select adjacent tasks using the Shift key—the order of selection does not matter.
However, if you hold down Ctrl and click each task, the tasks are linked in precisely the order in which you selected each individual task. Using this method, you can make a task lower in the list and the predecessor of a task higher in the list.
