Re: Italics in fields

My specific need is to break away from the built-in source format and add freeform source information; in doing so I would like to italicize certain words (titles) when appropriate. When I tried to change the font, it changed the entire field. Am I missing something? My limited knowledge of databas...

Re: add a sibling

I'm sure there's a cleverer way, but what I do in that situation is create 'phantom' parents to attach the children to e.g. Mr Smith and Mrs Smith (use whatever your surname is) which allows you to continue until you get the evidence for what they are actually called. Also works the other way for "...

Keith, Are there any plans to allow photos for an event in addition to people and sources? It seems like, for example, a wedding photo should be attached to the Marriage Event instead of to both individuals separately.Thanks, Jon Hi Jon If you drag the same image into iFamily more than once then iF...

The simplest solution is to give the user the choice of binary or decimal representations. However, to interpret a decimal Ahnentafel number the first thing a reader has to do is to mentally convert it to a binary string of 0's and 1's.

Will provide the option in V2.502

Hi

I have added a new FAQ at

Where do I put Notes and Comments?

Children are sorted by Birth date followed by Name. If none of the children has a birth date then the sort is in name sequence. So, if none of the children has a birth date then, until you have found their birth dates, you can prefix each name with a numeric number, for instance I added three childr...

The default list only includes "E-mail message" I suspect that you have imported a Gedcom file that had "Email" as a Source Type and that iFamily created an extra type to accommodate your data.

In iFamily you can add as many Source Types as you like - you are not constrained to using the list that is there by default. For instructions on adding a new Source Type click on the Help button to the right of Source Type in the Sources Add/Edit dialog
