OK, sounds like it works the way I hoped it would.

I just need to pay a little more attention to the cases I tried that seemed to not behave correctly.

No details to report of a problem, yet.

Let's close this issue here.

Thanks to both of you.

In Topic: Need easier data entry tool

I do that with Census records for a family. Use the Canadian Census 1880 as the Source and the Citation is a particular film page # Entry #. Once I've done the first person in the family, I memorize that citation (in the Citation Manager screen click the Memorize button or use Alt-M) and then for every subsequent fact and person included in that Census record I Paste (Alt-P) that same source and citation in for them. It really does speed up the data entry for adding a person, their approx birth date, and a census fact as well, sometimes more if its a detailed Census. Alt-S, Alt-P, Alt-O .... the word Alt on my keyboard is getting rubbed off!

At the moment, the DOC is about 4 Mb with embedded JPGs ... probably a bit much for a single Forum posting UNLESS it is possible to attach a file.

In Topic: Marriages don't show as matching at all

I wasn't talking about that DEA event, but I have no trouble with it, and I don't find it inconsistent in any way.

It is an example of working as I expected, and the CHR I described is also working as expected.

The MAR is NOT working as expected because it has coloured the place detail differently than the DEA and CHR did.

That's all I've been saying since the start and no responses to this post have explained why the different colouring is correct.

If you cannot explain it, then let's wait for someone who can.
