I was asked by someone to not include their middle name in reports, exports etc.  I tried putting their name in as Jane {Caroline} Smith, but GEDCOM exports and reports don't seem to see the {} as a private piece of a fact.

 

I have used a note to keep this info like this {middle name Caroline} and that works but wondering if there is a better way to do this.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom S.

That's about it. Maybe you could put full name in an Alternate Name marked private.
