Notes Description Export

Post by ChrisB » Sat Apr 02, 2016 3:44 pm

Hi
I've exported the data via GEDCOM for a family member to use and have discovered that the description associated with the notes on a person is not exported in the GEDCOM, so when the other person views the notes having imported the GEDCOM into their system the notes are just one long string. I had a look at the GEDCOM and the descriptions aren't there. Typically I have used the description to distinguish one set of notes from another so without the description the context is lost. Is there any way to incorporate the description as part of the note so that the context is retained?

Just discovered that if I export as a KKPro file I retain the description data as an adjunct to the notes (sadly at the back!!) so with some data manipulation I might be able to get the description as the first line of the note in question, and then re-import into KKPro but if there is a better way that would be good, as that is a lot of work.
