Is there a way to have the current age show up while in Edit Person?

Do you mean when you have just typed in a new fact, that lies somewhere between the birth and death dates?

 

Hit the [Save] button for that fact.

 

If there is no valid Birth fact, then there is no way for RM to calculate an age.

It is a poor solution, but add a "Residence" fact with today's date.  The person's age is then displayed.  It would be easier to use  calculator.

I actually created an Age fact with the sentence templates: 

 

Principle Role: < [Person:HeShe]> was< [Person:Age:Plain]> years old< [Date]>.

 

Witness Role: < [ThisPerson:HeShe]> was< [ThisPerson:Age:Plain]> years old< [Date]>.

 

I added the fact to myself and then shared it with all the living people in my database. I only need to update the date on my fact to make it update on everyone else. Then I can see age of everyone currently living.
