Event order in Narrative Descendants Report

19 December 2018 - 01:41 PM

Complete newbie. Trying to do a narrative descendants report by using the suggestions in Jerry Bryan's excellent post.

Would like the facts to appear in chronological order, rather than some facts (ie marriage) appearing after the death of the person. I gather this is because  family facts appear after personal facts in RM reports.

In Jerry's example report, events seem to appear in chronological order.

 

Is there a magic work around within RM7 to make this happen? One possibility is to use, say,  MS Word to rearrange after the fact. But of course it would be much nicer to have an option to sort in chronological order, ignoring personal and family.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
