When I print out out narrative reports, I am having a problem with the order of multiple spouses and their children. The second spouse is printing first with her children and then the first spouse is printing afterward with her children. Is there some way to reverse the order? it seems to me the first spouse should print first and then the second spouse.

Yes, there is.

RM won't re-order persons and families automatically, but here's how:

 

Go to Family View, then highlight either parent.

At the upper left, just below the menu, select the down-arrow next to Spouses.

Select Children (n), and slide right to open the list of children.

Scroll down to Rearrange children, and select.

At the bottom of the dialog box, select the [Sort by Birth Date] button.

 

There is a similar procedure for sorting multiple Spouses by marriage date.
