I am a new user and still feeling my way.  I am a former Family Tree Maker user but got tired of the high costs.

 

   I am trying to generate a narrative report and my paragraphs are full of the words NEED TO DEFINE SENTENCE.

 

where do I go to correct these sentences or how can I print the report without those annoying words every other sentence.  

 

Thank you

Lists->Fact Type List...

 

RM has default sentence templates for a bunch of built-in fact types such as birth, death, marriage, etc. If you add your own fact types, or if you import GEDCOM that has it's own fact types, then you have to add sentences for the additional fact types.

The RootsMagic 4 Tips sheet has field variables you can use in the sentence template.

Thank you to both of you.  Renee I could not get that link to work, but I was able to search out your work on that subject.

 

This is a bit confusing for me, but I am sure i can work it out with your help.  

 

You are very kind to answer to quickly.

Fixed it. There was a space at the end causing an issue.
