RM set all my source qualities to:
don't know  Primary  don't know
and it marked most of the fact/tags Primary - even the Note facts/tags, and the Birth tags that only contain a sort date
I don't have always have a Primary source for BMDBu, and hardly ever for Notes.  In TMG birth order was established by the sort birth date.  (When I didn't have a birth date, I used the sort date on the birth tag.)  RM marked these sort date tags as primary when they don't contain an actual date, place or source citation.  I think I mentioned this problem in a previous post.  I asked if there could be a default Quality attached to the Source in the Source List?  One that could override what is shown in the individual fact/tags?  Maybe a choice - do you want to override existing qualities or not?  (If not, only new tags would start out with the quality setting chosen in the Source List.)  With 20,000 people in a file and an average 3 fact/tags per person - again the math is daunting. . . Maybe this is already on the list?
