I just added the death of a person in Castelluccia. She was already in the database from her birth record. She was born at hour 12 and died at hour 20 the same day. RootsMagic places the death before the birth. How can I move the death to show a more logical sequence?

Highlight one of the facts and to the right under Sort Date add a -1 or -2 after it the date. The dash will control the order the facts are listed. You can also add a different sort date and it won't appear in any of the reports.

I believe logical sorting of life events is on the enhancement request.

 

It is simply wrong to sort these events incorrectly on screen and ask users to manually intervene and waste time when when a simply sort key added to the FactTypeTable would overcome this.
