GEDCOM : Occupation / Death Description
Posted 05 December 2011 - 10:58 AM
When they are exported to GEDCOM (OCCU and CAUS), they are exported in one long line and not split up with continuation lines (CONC).
When this is not supported by the GEDCOM-specs for these OCCU and CAUS, RM5 should only allow to enter the maximum number of characters.
BTW, when re-imported into RM5, everything beyond position 80 of the GEDCOM-line is truncated, as it should be, but with the CONC the whole description would have been re-imported (again, when GEDCOM-specs allow this).

The GEDCOM spec doesn't allow me to use CONC for those descriptions, so I would need to shorten that description field. However a bunch of users have already entered long data in those fields so that would cause them to lose that data anyways.
It is best for us to leave it the way it is right now.
