constraint changes while switching from Manual to auto scheduling

Hello there, I have a project file where I have projects with set up as "schedule from project finish date" and "fixed work" and "must finish on" constraint. now I did some importing information to manually edit. Then when I am done and then I switched from manual to auto.Then My project constraint is changing from "Must finish on" to "Finish as late as possible" which is exactly opposite what I needed.I am flexible to move around my start date or duration or assign more o less resources.Even "finish as soon as possible" or "finish no later than" constraint will work.Seems like it is switching to a default constraint "ALAP".Could anyone plaese tell me if there is a way I could set up my project with constraint "must finish on" constraint.Please Help.It will be a big help.Thanks.

RE: constraint changes while switching from Manual to auto scheduling

Manually scheduled tasks cannot be constrained. So, when you switch from auto to manual scheduling - the task inherits the default constraint of ALAP from a project scheduled from a finish date. If you want to set Must Finish On constraints, the task must be autoscheduled.
