    I see that you are in the Gantt Chart. Have you tried to first tie the two tasks/Subtasks together by clicking and dragging a dependency to the one that you want? This would ensure that you select the correct one. To do this hover over the task in the Chart and two bullseye looking things, one at the front of the task and one at the back, will appear. Click, hold, and drag to the front or back of the next task. This would essentially add the dependency that you would need, then if you needed to adjust the dependency it would already be attached you would just need to change it to fit what you are doing.

    Hopetully that helps.

    Ryan, 

    No, this is in the list view. I would prefer to work out of the list view, not the Gantt Chart. When you are under the list view and open up the dependencies it will show a mini version of a Gantt chart.

    For more clarification, I opened up the task from list view and this image is of the far right side of the task.

    Gotcha, I love working out of the list view for viewing and working with tasks, setting up tasks, however, I think we need to work in other views and use the strengths of those views to our advantage. I have also had frustration when setting up dependencies within the list view for similar reasons you have listed. Playing around with Wrike I found that what I wrote above is the easiest way to complete the initial setup of dependencies, then in List view, I can then edit them to fit my needs.

    If you are finding that you are using the same tasks and folder structure over and over again and having to set the dependencies over and over again, have you looked at using templates. You can set a template up with the dependencies that you want and then just duplicate the template when creating a new project.

    Something to think about.

    Krista, to piggyback on Ryan's point about templates, you can also add a task name prefix when you duplicate a project or folder. 

     

    In theory, you could just duplicate all of your projects right now, add the task prefixes and delete the original projects.

    This is also a problem that my team are having - it's another fiddly little thing that takes more time to set up than it should because of the trial and error involved. If you accidentally select the wrong one, then the date of that task gets auto-rescheduled and you have to go and change it back. It's a pain.
    It sounds that the structure we use for projects  is pretty similar to what OP described: parent milestones and subtasks nested underneath them. One thing I find interesting is that if you set dependencies between the parent milestones, it does displays the overall parent folder so that you can differentiate and select the correct one (see image below, some sensitive info blurred):

     

    It would save a lot of faff if this functionality could be extended to tasks and subtasks also.
