Confirming this is on the development list. 


If there is a Wish List somewhere, might it be possible to have the facility to click through from the To Do task to the person to whom the task applies?

The answer is to back out to the parent Place, use the PRINT button there, edit that list outside Rootsmagic to eventually give you the simple report you wanted.



Another problem solved! Many thanks.

For the benefit of anyone else who comes across this thread, I can see that I was expecting results which I have now obtained a different/better way.


Originally I did a Find Everywhere search for Workhouse expecting to obtain a list of people who died in one. It did reveal workhouse under Places/Place Details but I was hoping for something I now realise needed a custom report. Thus if I search from a list and ask for Death details contains Workhouse I get Workhouse + Union Workhouse etc.


What I would observe is that when I did a test by duplicating Workhouse in the Death Description field of one person, Find Everywhere calls this Death detail which, at worst, is just a little inconsistent but not a problem.

Jerry, thank you for pointing me to that facility; I have tidied up/merged my RM file places a great deal.


As regards the specific problem I had, I have been able to use Find Everywhere which brings up a neat result table with clickable links so I could find what I was after and edit instances of it. Luckily not as long a job as a feared.



Find Everywhere fails to find the word Workhouse in the Death fact field. Is it that some searches will not yield the results expected?

I was not quite correct in my last post when I said 'Clicking Generate report includes ALL the tasks'.


I have 47 tasks in total, all OPEN in my RM file. If I print them all sorted by priority the output is correct.
If I select ALL tasks of Priority 5 and lower I get tasks 1-29 but also 30-35 (Priority 6)
In fact if I select priority N then I get tasks up to N+1 as you did.
