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.




Description field in Fact Types list

Using Fact Types, I frequently use the description field for info. It would be helpful if one or more Fact Types could be edited at the same time to use the description field rather than having to edit one Fact Type at a time.


Thanks for listening.
