Topics I've Started

Formatting Names - by gender, by living/deceased

26 August 2009 - 01:36 PM

Formatting names: You can format names by colour. How about formatting all male (or female) direct / blood descendents by Bold and/or colour? The formatting function is poor when compared to the standard desk top application MS Office. Is it time to update this functionality? Alternatively, format descendants, male, deceased or descendants, male, living etc.

Monitor 19" wide wasted space

26 August 2009 - 01:32 PM

Monitor: I have a standard 19 wide monitor. This means that my screen can accommodate at least 12 generations in the Descendents view. Or more columns (DoM?, Notes?) These wide screens have been around for awhile. It is time to utilise the hardware capabilities?
Suggestion, let the user pick from a list the additional columns required

Partner / Spouse / any gender

Spouse: Why does it assume that the spouse is of the opposite gender? It has been nearly 30 or 40 years that gays and lesbians have formed relationships. Considering that there are many same-sex relationships these days, that should be provided for. There are also long-term partnerships that produce children (or adopt children) that never become a married couple. We may not agree with these arrangements, they exist and need to be correctly recorded. I cannot find an easy way to capture this information. I have recently noted that this was an issue with RM in 2004 and functionality appears to be still not provided is that true???
