If I could delete this as easily as wiping egg off my face, I would. :blink: I was fooled into thinking something was working by RM's randomness in the illustrating how a sentence will look in the Customise fact sentence dialog. And completely missing that :Casual does not quote the nickname.

I don't think you have egg on your face. :)

I was just trying [person:nickn] as you suggested. On the printed narrative report, the nickname was printed for the sentence without being enclosed with "" or () although it didn't show in the customized sentence after I clicked on OK.

[person:nick] also just printed the nickname in the printed narrative report.

So now we have 3 ways to get it. :)
