Font problem with RM download today

08 June 2017 - 01:57 PM

Since RM update today it will no longer recognize foreign accented words in the Note Editor section, specifically French words. I cannot figure out how to correct this. What shows is the word, however whatever letter is accented is shown as a ? in a diamond. Please help, this is very annoying.


Thank you.

Birth Fact Sentence Template

30 March 2017 - 02:24 PM

I have been trying to edit the "Birth Fact Sentence Template" to show the parents of the named person when a narrative report is printed. I came across this template today somewhere in the forum - 


<b>[person:given:surname]</b><%<, son of <?[father]|[father]|> <?[father]|<and [mother]>|[mother]>,>|<, daughter of <?[father]|[father]|><?[father]|<?[mother]| and|>> [mother],>> was born< [Date]>< [PlaceDetails]>< [Place:short]>.


Most of it works, however it does not pull up the names of the father and/or mother. All that is shown is:

John Smith, son of [father] and [mother], was born on 1 January 2000, in Boston, Massachusetts


The above name/date are fictitious - however, I would appreciate some input to fix this so that the parents names would show.
