How to prevent PPDS scheduling operations over non-working times


I have defined shifts & shift sequences such that Saturday is a non-working day as I don't want PPDS to schedule an operation over the Saturday. The Saturday shows light-gray on the scheduling board as expected. However, if I drag the start time of the operation into the Saturday, instead of pushing it to Sunday, it stretches the operation over the Saturday: So the bar is elongated compared to when it is scheduled completely in working time, but the processing time is the same. How can I force the system to schedule the operation completely outside non-working time, i.e. to start on the Sunday in thi case. This behavior also occurs when a heuristic is run rather than manually dragging it. The latter is worse, since by manually dragging the start time to Sunday, it at least will "snap to" the Sunday.

Thanks in advance,

Chris Brookes.
