How to display NOTES with the person rather than at the END of a report?
Tom

I  have migrated my Family Tree Maker data base to FTB.  All the NOTES that I have in FTM do migrate to the NOTES in FTB without any problem.   However, the only option in FTB to display the NOTES in at the END of a report - I would like them to display WITH the person in the report.

The only way that I have found to display the NOTES with the person in FTB is to move the notes into the FACTS section and set up a COMMENT.  This way, the notes display with the person in the report. 

Since I have hunderds of people with NOTES, is there a way to either:

  1. Display the NOTES with the person rather than at the end of a report, or
  2. Automatically move the NOTES to a COMMENT in the FACTS section

(NOTE TO FTB DEVELOPERS - Would like to have option in REPORTS to display NOTES with a person - not just at the end of the report)

Did you ever find the answer to your question of how to display note or facts with the person in a report rather than on a separate page?  There are situations where the software does not get the relationship right when it comes to second marriage and the relationship of the children with previous spouse.

 

thanks for any help you may have for displaying the notes or facts with the person.

There does not seem to be a way to display the notes WITH THE PERSON in the report.  The only option is to display the notes AT THE END of the report or NOT AT ALL.  

I did send an email to Noa Inbar <noa@myheritage.com> on June 29, 2008 at MyHeritage asking the same question.   Maybe if several people send in this request for change, it may get some attention.  I would think this would be a minor option change.

The one thing I like about FTB is the ability to include pictures on the Reports, which Family TreeMaker does not allow.  However, until FTB changes the NOTES option and fixes a few other bugs (like the second marriage relationship), I am staying with Family Tree Maker.

Tom, when you have the report displayed on your screen check out ALL the options. I know I saw end notes and foot notes but I can't remember exactly where.
