That is not true and has never been true.

RM does not automatically change any of a user's place names. RM gives the user the option to change the place name if the user chooses to do so.

Choose Level 2.

Highlight a child.

Click on the Spouses arrow in the Info area at the top left.

That will give you the name of all the highlighted person's spouses in spouse order.

If you decide you also want to see the highlighted person's children with birth and death dates, change the slider to 3.

The same person will still be highlighted.

The focus person at the top of the list will not be changed.

Sidebar, Family will also change to show the highlighted person's family. It will still show the person's family, but the list is more compact.

Ernie, you might want to create a general Research log, zz Database standards, and copy it into a Research item.

Use that Research log to add other Research items for other ways you want to handle different situations.

The Research log will be in your database for quick reference and you would not need to hunt down a printed paper or another file on your computer.

I start my "not related to genealogy research" logs with zz so they sort to the bottom of the list and are easy to find. I just start typing zz to go to them in the list.

General Research logs can be transfered into a new database using Files, import lists.
