Topics I've Started

Highlighting in Notes Windows

07 December 2013 - 04:13 PM

When in one of the Notes editors and there is a word followed by a colon i.e. URL; - If you double-click on "URL" to change it to Bold, for example, the colon gets highlighted as well instead of just "URL" as it is in most word processor or text editor. It would be nice if this were fixed because anything that follows is also made bold when you resume typing.

Publish Online, add Detail Text to sources

24 September 2013 - 02:09 PM

Let me say that I LOVE the Publish Online feature and know it will evolve in the future. This feature plus the Web Tags is a step in the right direction to get our data published to the cloud where is will be available.

One feature I would like to see added is the ability to add source Detail text - This is where the meat of the source lies many times.

For example, a census record will have the Transcription/Extract placed in the Detail Text tab. The citation lets you find the source but the Detail Text is what brings the census alive for that person or family.

Name Index Options

23 September 2013 - 04:37 AM

I would like to see an option added to the Name Index "Options" tab to show Reference Numbers on the list -

I have an ID number for each person and it is available in other areas of the program instead of the Record Number.

I have 5 John Smith people - if the Reference number was visible on the list l could instantly pick out the one I am looking for in the list of 5 shown

Indicators for Media, Research Logs, etc.

22 September 2013 - 11:36 AM

Situation: Source/ Edit Source - There is no indication if there are media attached to this source citation - if there was a little number or if the tab was somehow different than it is when empty

Situation: Person Edit screen - Address, Media, ToDo and Research Tabs: There is no indication if there are any items in any of these from looking at the tabs - It would be helpful if there was a number like there is for the Web Tags tab or some kind of indication the tab has something in it.

I realize that there are small icons in the upper left when the person is highlighted but it would be so much easier and more useful if there were indicators on the Edit screen where I spend most of my time

Names in Shared Facts

30 August 2013 - 02:48 PM

Names in Shared Facts

The names that are added to Shared Facts that are not in the database at present are not available in searches or any reports.

I would like to see either:
1. The ability to search for these people or
2. The ability to create an alphabatized list of the names entered.

Reasoning: There has been a few instances where a person entered on say a census as a boarder turns out to be the sister of the wife of the household and you later discover that she had a different father, thus the different surname.
