Edit Fact Type option

30 August 2020 - 10:34 AM

I would like to have the option on the Edit Fact Type screen to set the default value of "private" to yes for certain fact types.


Right now the default is "no", which is fine 99.9% of the time.


However, I would like the social security fact to ALWAYS be private by default so I don't have to remember to check that box each time I add an entry.


I have also created some facts regarding DNA matches that I would not want to share on Ancestry's Tree Share.  Since they are for my eyes only I would like that fact those fact types to default to "private".

copy Fact

It would greatly help me if I could copy a fact/event and paste it to another person.  I'd like it to include the attached sources as well.


This could be handled two ways:


1: Copy Paste in the same manner as the Memorized Source citation.


2: Select people from a list to copy the item in the manner of sharing a fact.



There are many times that just sharing a fact is not satisfactory.  I do many Swedish household surveys.  Family members are born or die or leave or return sometimes many times during the time period covered by the book.


I'd like to copy the fact then edit it for each family member to indicate what time period they were there.


Thank you
