I changed the root person from me to my niece. However, when her name is highlighted, the relationship shown on the bottom left of the window reads "niece" instead of "self." And when another person is highlighted, the relationship shown is to me, not the root person. But, if I Ctrl+Home to return to the root person, it correctly returns to her.

 

I have checked Tools>File Options and my niece is listed as root person. I have run all the File>Database Tools, but the problem still exists. How do I get the correct relationship to show?

The relationship indicated at the lower-left of the Family View does not automatically update, and is NOT calculated from the Root Person.

 

Use the Tools > Set Relationships command to reset or update the relationships.

 

Refer to Help > Setting Relationships for more details.

Of course! I should have remembered that move. Thanks for your prompt response.
