Spouse in Legacy TreeDraw 3

How is it possible to insert the given name of the spouse in the 'import field' as opposed to having to manually insert each one individually. I know you can insert 'husb given' and 'wife given' but surely it must be possible to do automatically with respect to the gender.

Since the field HusbGivenName only appears in a family record, I assume that you are trying to add person names to the "Marriage details" data type. This is not recommended since it will either result in duplicated names or missing names - depending on what you have in the "Name" and "Child's name" data types. Person names should only appear in the "Name" and "Child's name" data types. TreeDraw will then format the chart correctly.
