I would like to be able to use template fields in the contents of notes for a fact. The fields that are available for the fact would also be available for use in the contents of the notes. This would simplify making changes to notes when for example the name of the person changes, or the place name changes. It would also allow for the use of possessive and cycle for the person name in the note, making for a better reading note.

Notes formatted? I don't like the idea.

 

I think notes should be free hand writing without a lot of help.

This wish, if fulfilled, would have no effect on your old or new freely written notes, Alfred. What it could/should enable is the optional use of the template language variables within the body of the notes so that:
- current database values for the Person's name, Event Date, Place, Description may be used in the Note
- repeated use of the person's name or the place of the event to which the note is associated may be cycled automatically

Years ago, people were asking for things in Family Origins which I considered unreasonable so I posted a request that it would wash my car for me.

 

I never got it then, how about now?

 

The more "Features" within the program, the more complicated it is.

I would just as soon KISS.
