Word Spacing

02 January 2016 - 10:42 AM

I am having an issue with spacing of words within the note field. I have a screen shot, but I'm not sure how to get permission to load it, so I'll just tell you what it is doing.

 

Long sentences in my description field from FTM is going into Notes on RM.  After gedcom, I have found lost spaces between words.  Perhaps the spaces are being lost in the translation. For instance...

 

FTM says this:

The Adam family removed from Virginia to Illinois by the time of the 1860 Census and had removed to Cowley County, Kansas before the 1870 Census as Nathaniel was deceased by 1869 in Kansas.

 

GEDCOM says this:

1 EVEN The Adam family removed from Virginia to Illinois by the time of the

2 CONC 1860 Census and had removed to Cowley County, Kansas before the 1870

2 CONC Census as Nathaniel was deceased by 1869 in Kansas.

 

RM says this:

The Adam family removed from Virginia to Illinois by the time of the1860 Census and had removed to Cowley County, Kansas before the 1870 Census as Nathaniel was deceased by 1869 in Kansas.

 

I notice that the gedcom splits the first time where "the" and "1860" are located.  However, the second time the split occurs between "1870" and "Census" the spacing is fine.

 

Thank you.
