Family Tree Beta 6.1.0: No shared facts on comparison screen
Posted 24 March 2013 - 12:02 AM
I suspect this is by design to prevent users from replacing a shared fact in RootsMagic with an individual fact from Family Tree. On the flip side, however, it might also lead to users adding facts from Family Tree that already exist in RootsMagic but aren't visible on the comparison screen.
Would it be possible to display shared and family facts on the RootsMagic side of the screen and either:
(a) make it so they cannot be "replaced" by a Family Tree fact or
( make the facts replaceable but make it obvious that the facts are shared/family facts, say by adding a label to the fact type.

Alternatively, split and unshare and don't go back to the original shared events, which would probably be safer; you could still use shared events on creating new events if that is advantageous and then repeat the split and unshare processes.
As for any outboard and any major inboard processes that change the data, backup, backup, backup.

One thing you would have to keep in mind with using Shared fact is that multiple people are involved. On Family Tree that would mean the fact could only be added as a Family Fact which is only for the couple. I don't even know how we would add Shared facts that are not couple related, as in child's birth. The only option would be to make the Shared Fact a single fact when added to FT. This very complicated so I just don't see this happening any time soon. But, the RootsMagician surprises me all the time.
