Hi again,

 

Start with a Child (Child1), add a Father (Father1) and set him up.

 

Then, to Father1, add a Marriage and create a new Person (Wife1).

Wife1 dies, so now add another Marriage and create another person (Wife2).

 

Now go to Father1 and look in the "Family" tab.

There is 1 child list below (Child1) but no Mother.

 

Click "click to add mother", and choose Existing Person (Wife2).

You are asked if you want to "Add to this family", click Yes.

 

The result - nothing appears to have changed,

we are still in the "Family" tab of Father1.

At the top-left, there is a dropdown "Spouses" which has 3 listed,

"Unknown Spouse" has 1 child (our Child1),

and now we also have an extra BLANK child listed under Spouse=Wife2.

 

And, again, where do these bug reports go? How can I track their progress?

 

Thanks,

Paul

Oh and further to the bug,

if you choose the Wife2 spouse,

we see in the Family tab the new BLANK child.

 

You can't delete or unlink this child, it just keeps saying "You need to highlight the person you want to delete / unlink"

And the BLANK child is still there when I close and reopen RootsMagic.

 

In the Pedigree tree, it just says "Click to add Child".

Seems that I have now added Child1 to multiple families.

This seems very buggy behaviour ...

Try again with a test child#2.

 

Then click on Add Parents

 

Then add the father with data.

 

Then add the mother1 with details.

 

It seems to work better with this sequence.

 

mother1 dies

 

Now select father

 

Now click on Add spouse

 

Add Mother2

Watch when adding spouses on which family you want to add them to. It should identify the child with the unknown spouse and let you select adding them there. If you don't then you get a new family.
