Double-headed arrow symbol and no sentence
Posted 28 December 2012 - 02:05 PM
Also when selected the fact with the arrow symbol does not display anything in the Sentence section at the bottom right of the screen. Both facts appear to have the same information in the notes, sources and share sections.

The sentence is blank because in your FactType List, no sentence template has been defined for that role for that FactType.
I recommend reading RM Help on Search > Fact Type and Search > shared fact.

Once the checkmark is removed they go away.

The duplication is not occuring with the principal person's records but with some of those who share the event.
I have set up the sentence type as TomH suggested but am concerned that events are being randomly duplicated so I am now having to check all entries in the database and either delete duplicates and/or amend the sentences.
I tried going to the options menu and clicking on "<-show shared events", however although when the checkmark is removed not only do the green double-headed arrows go away but so do all the shared facts.
I will just press on with the checking.

The link is:
This is why the fact for the Principal still shows.
The double headed arrow means that fact is a fact that has been shared with that Sharee from the Principal's fact so the shared fact disappears when show shared events is unchecked on the Timeline main view.
If you go to the fact on the Principal's record and also share the fact with the Principal and check the show shared events, you will see 1 fact as the fact linked to the Principal and 1 fact Shared with the Principal as a Sharee. The sentence linked to the Principal will print as the sentence template for the Principal on the Fact type list. The sharee sentence will print for the sharee role sentence template for the role you choose.
If you have duplication of a shared fact on the Sharee's Timeline, you have shared the fact with that person twice. You will need to remove one instant of that person from the People who share this fact screen.
