Hi Chris,Chris Knight wrote:This is the first time I have tried to do this as I recall so it may just be me being stupid.
I have disconnected a couple of relationships that were wrong and want to reconnect the parties to other people who are not visible in the diagram (but are in the data) and thus I can't drag them to connect them up.
In trying to connect up spouses, I right click on a box and am invited to select a name from a list that unhelpfully filters people by age difference with the focal person. I say unhelpfully because the people I am trying to connect don't all have birthdates recorded and I can't see them in this list! A workaround is to give the parties fictitious dates so they do show up in this list.
How on earth can I connect spouses and parents to children etc?
So sorry if you are having difficulty. I would call it a buggette but you are the user so I will accept your judgement.
Will give this one top priority when I return from leave on Wednesday 8th.
You can only connect a spouse to someone who is the Focal Person in the context diagram.
And yes, you may need to add a ficticious birth date to enable these functions. An approximate date (c circa, abt about) is sufficient.
Also, if the people that you are trying to re-connect are totally unconnected then you may have to find them using the toolbar seach field, with the filter set to " unconnected people" , give them a birth date and only then reconnect them using right click and the pop up menu option - NONE OF WHICH is at all intuitive - so as you say we need to do some coding on this one to make it simpler.
