Date of death duplicated

Post by SusanH » Sat Apr 23, 2016 9:05 am

I am very new to using TreeDraw and struggling a bit! I have managed to successfully create a descendent tree but some of the people have the date of death in bold under their names and others do not. I have checked my legacy file and cannot see anything there and I know there is probably a simple fix but I do not know what it is. I want to have this printed as a gift for someone and don't want to find I have missed a date when manually deleting them.

Any help appreciated.

It sounds like you may have added the death date to either the "Name" or "Childs name" data type when setting up the import fields in TreeDraw. This type of data should only be included in the "Person details" data type. Please see Preferences | Import fields in the manual.
