I have just started playing with user defined templates and have created my own Parish records source template which includes fields for Church, Parish and Event Date defined as follows (taken from template export):
<Hint>Name of church</Hint>
<LongHint>Date of Event</LongHint>
(I'm a lumper hence in source detail not source)
When I used the source template to create a new source and enter the fields, I was very disappointed to find that the place type field was just treated as text and did not work in the same way as the place field when entering a fact, giving me a drop-down list of matching places from my place list.
Also there is no place details field type which I would like for the church name and also to work the same as place detail in the fact entry.
All the entries are already in my main place table e.g. Place: London, England, United Kingdom. Place Detail: St. John, Smith Square. so having to re-type in full every time I use that source template is not only a pain but leads to errors and duplications.
Also I entered the date in 24/12/1900 format and it converted (in the entry field) to 24 December 1900 rather than my default format of 24 Dec 1900. At least it did convert though so it is recognising it as date not text.
Am I doing something wrong in my template setup or is it something for the changes for next version list??
