Updating existing tree data with new field

Post by CliveH » Sat Mar 08, 2014 6:09 pm

I have a large tree in Treedraw v4.2.0. I have decided I want to import an extra piece of data, an occupation field, from Kith & Kin that I have not previously imported. This is working fine for all new imports of data. Is there any way of getting this new field to appear on the existing data already in the tree? I do not want to have to re-import the existing data, just update it. Many thanks and love K&K and Treedraw. :D

You could use "Format | Database link" on every person's details in the chart to add the Occupation field but the additional text from the occupation, when you use "Edit | Update text", would most likely overlap the chart elements below it. The only way to get the chart properly spaced automatically is to import the tree again.
