I have been trialling with shared facts, roles, and sentence structures -- but am at a loss!
I am working through a large number of historical letters around one person. So, there are the letters written by an author (1) to a recipient (2), with another person often subject of the letter (3).
Ideally, I would like to see these letters "shared" between the people relevant to the respective letter, with respective roles assigned. (I have seen a post somewhere else that this may be lost with a gedcom file transfer -- but right now it helps me for further research).
However, I keep running into troubles with the sentence structures. It seems, I keep getting the "Author" right, but not the recipient or the subject. This is an issue both with names within or outside the database.
So, for instance:
[Person:Author]<, [Place]> wrote a letter to [Recipient]<, dated [Date]>< with subject [Subject]>.
In author's profile, the fact sentence registers Author and Recipient, but "Subject" (i.e. a third person in my database or "just typed") is being ignored. However, a "just typed" name is correctly displayed!
[Recipient] received a letter from [Person:Author]<, [place]><, dated [date]><. with subject [Subject]>.
In recipient's profile, the fact sentence ignores recipient's name, but mentions author and subject (i.e. third person) and the the "just typed" name even with and "and".
[Subject] was subject of a letter by [Person:Author] <, [place]> to [Recipient]<, dated [date]>.
Ignores subject's name, but displays "just typed" name as subject, and mentions author and recipient correctly.
I have tried all possible variations I could think of, but after a number of hours did not get any better results. If I add "Person:" before "Recipient" and "Subject", the Author's name is being displayed.
Anybody would have some advice? Many thanks.
