My ancestral town has gone thru name changes. When I start typing in the place details, which have already been used for one variation of the name, they don't come up when I enter them under another place name.



Also, I just made a GEDCOM now and while it was building, it showed how many persons, families and sources, but this promptly disappears from the screen.

1 - I don't believe there is any way to share place details among multiple places. You'll have to re-enter them for each main place variation.


2 - I consider the GEDCOM counter to be just a form of progress bar. In fact, it always ends on a "decade" count, instead of the actual count. For example, if the database has 423 individuals, the GEDCOM count will stop at 420. If you want accurate counts, go to File > Properties.
