Topics I've Started

Family Fact support in People View

10 September 2018 - 05:57 PM

This one may already be in the list, but if not then my wish is support for family facts in People View. In the event a person has more than one spouse, family facts for that person should be chosen for the same spouse that would be chosen if the same person were displayed in Family View or Pedigree View. In the event of duplicate family facts of the same type for the same spouse such as marrying the same person twice, People View already has a solution. I'm not sure what it is, but for example if a person has two birth facts then People View only displays one of the two birth facts. The same approach could be taken with two marriages to the same person.




People View, Multi-column sort

This one may already be in the list, but if not then my wish is support for multi-column sort capability in People View.



New Option for Pedigree View

08 September 2018 - 10:25 PM

RM's Pedigree View in the main panel already has an option to display 5 generations or to display 6 generations. I wish for a new option to influence the location of a newly highlighted person within Pedigree View. The option could be a checkbox called something like "Show highlighted person and spouse". It would apply only when the highlighted person was in the left most position of Pedigree View and when that person had a spouse. It would be functionally equivalent to clicking the little red arrowhead that's immediately to the left of the left most person when the left most person was highlighted. The option could be used any time, but would be most useful, for example, when scrolling through the Index View or the Groups View in the left sidebar.



Left Justify Fact Names in Timeline View

30 August 2018 - 03:35 PM

Timeline View right justifies fact names within their column. I wish instead that it would left justify the fact names within their column. The rows would be much easier to scan visually and to read if the fact names were left justified within their column.



Template for Initial (or Default) Name for a Master Source

23 August 2018 - 06:50 AM

RM's support for Master Sources already provides for templates to create a footnote sentence, a short footnote sentence, and a bibliography sentence. I also wish for a template to create a default name for a Master Source where the default name would be constructed using the only variables available from the Master Source and not variables available in Source Details. This should be an optional feature that a user could enable or disable. Also, the user could edit the default Master Source name and the edited name would not be further modified by RM, except that there should be a "Reset to Default" button for the name of a Master Source.
