Burial Sentence Template

04 February 2018 - 10:12 PM

I searched the forum but didn't find an answer to my question. I am wanting to change the default Burial Sentence Template. Currently I have it written this way < b>burial:< /b>< [PlaceDetails:Plain]>< [Place:Short]> but it's still not exactly how I would like. In many instances, the name of the cemetery is not known. so I would like it to read "burial: city, state" but instead it reads "burial: in city, state". I know if I use [Place:Short:Plain] that would remove the preposition, but I still want the preposition to be used if there's a cemetery listed in the [PlaceDetails] field, so is there a switch I can use to have [Place:Short:Plain] appear when [PlaceDetails] is blank but have it be [Place:Short] when [PlaceDetails] is NOT blank??

Editing Structure of Narrative NGSQ Report

31 January 2018 - 09:49 PM

It's possible this question has been asked before, but I can't find it. Is there a way to edit how the list of children appears within the Narrative NGSQ Descendant Report? The way the structure is set up currently, it causes a lot of repeated information and the fact type sentence structure doesn't work correctly in the list of children.


This is how the individual looks (the way I want it):




This is how the children list appears under the marriage:



This is how that child looks in the next generation (I haven't finished editing my Place List yet to reflect Abbreviated forms):


Is there any way that I can format the software to not print vital statistics in the children list for those who get married and have children since the exact same info is repeated?

More Image Flexibility in Narrative reports

10 December 2017 - 06:25 PM

I am a pro genealogist. I have recently switched over to RootsMagic and I was really disappointed to see that only the primary individual photo is viewable in narrative reports. I would love to have the software coding changed to allow for event photos as well as multiple individual photos in narrative reports. My clients want their photos inline with the narratives. They don't want pages of separate photos in a scrapbook. As it is, I'm having to spend extra hours manually inserting photos into the narrative reports. Having the software do this would really save me a lot of manhours and greatly reduce the chance for human error. From reading other threads, I have seen this suggestion mentioned many times since 2009. Thank you.
