I am trying to customize the templates but I cannot find out how to accomplish my task. An example template is the graduation template. The template is:


[person] graduated< [Date]>< [PlaceDetails]>< [Place]>.


The problem is it prints as: She graduated in Women's Christian College of Philadelphia. 


There is no "in" in the template. It looks like it is associated with the Date field and would make sense if there was a date supplied but none is available. I tried making up a date and "in" changes to "on". Is there a workaround for this?

Depending where you entered "Women's ...", the auto-preposition is from one of the place variables. Extend it with a modifier to suppress the "in", e.g., [PlaceDetails:plain].
