When I create a Narrative report in Rootsmagic I find myself jumping in and out editing facts, as best possible, to create acceptable narrative. I know it would be a benefit to see the follow on Note in more context by appending the fact Note preview to the end of the sentence preview rather than beside the Note icon.


The existence of any Note is clear on the Edit Person screen so if this idea was embraced the user could highlight each fact which shows the existence of a Note and be able to see the preview following on from the sentence structure as it will appear in the report saving considerable time. Users with larger screen space could expand the Edit Person screen to see much more of the Note than at present where there is no easy possibility for it to wrap.



Keeping ones customers and their important views at a distance is never a good approach
