For any 'Event' having a time span, enter a date range, e.g., date1-date2.

In Topic: Add editor to the description line for a fact

A report like Individual Summary or Family Group Sheet is not designed for long Description values and accommodate Notes like citation endnotes. I should think the ramifications of providing support for long Descriptions would be many and challenging. Think of the Edit Person screen, People View, ...


The behaviour Jim reports of the long value being clipped and moved is just crazy. Do one or the other but not both!

Try File, Database Tools, Delete Phantoms after Rebuild Indexes.

I've forgotten if there has been much prior discussion on lineage line style. At least one different style for non-blood parentage would be a welcome enhancement. Add a relationship type "Speculative" or a certainty modifier "Proven|Unproven" that affects the style.

Only in a Personal Note for Metta or both Metta and Carsten or in the Spouse Note for Metta's Parents or in her Birth Note or in the Description or Note in a custom fact, possibly shared between Metta as Principal and each of her parents...


Another is to put the text into the Date field of some event and use SortDate to position it among the other dated events.
