When I use the Departure fact type roots inserts the word "in" where it is not appropriate to do so

Exampple - Fred SMITH departed from in Liverpool on 4 Dec 1920.

Clearly the "i" is not required in this sentence, and it reads nonsensically in the narrative, but I can't seem to fix it. Even a new fact type still add the word "in" to a sentence.

Grateful for any help to get over this problem

Many thanks

Chamge the sentence to < from [place:plain]>. That removes the default in and adds from as the prefix.

Check out the Help file for other ways to modify sentence structure.

When I use the Departure fact type . . .

Hmm...this is interesting -- I don't see anything in my fact list called "Departure". The only thing I find that would have a departure place is Emigration.
Laura, could this have been a user-devised fact or one of the "fact-facts" 1 through 13?

ps: just caught the "even new fact" sentence! :rolleyes:

Glenn, to see RM's program defined facts and default sentences, create a new database and look at the face type list.

Any fact not on that list is a user defined fact either created by the user or a fact imported from another program.

Thanks for the verification, Laura. :) That's what I was 99 & 44/100ths% sure of!
