Hi, Remo and thanks for taking an interest in this...
I find it in the on-line 'card' of an individual, where (usually) I have enclosed a nickname or the commonly used abbreviation of the person's name in double quotes.
I am still using the latest version of Opera.
I am right now changing a person's name in this way to include "Jim" as the name he is usually known by, having just got this information from a SmartMatch. Don't know if you can look at it in my tree but here is a full description;
Treffene Droscher Arnold Richardson family tree (that's my wife's family)
ID 1623 Daniel James Riordan (no dates at the moment though they are coming up; but his father was William Daniel Archer "Bill" Riordan 1912-1941 and his mother was Robina Esther Barbara Maud Riordan (Radnell) 1911-1945.)
I am going to change the name, using the on-line 'copy and edit details' function, to Daniel James "Jim" Riordan; I'll let you kmow what happens.
I had a look around in Your tree (as I can see as a guest, of course ;-).
I see this nicknames in a correct form.
I think it's not a problem of the browser or MyHeritage. The problem is - don't be angry - between the screen and the seat back ;-)
If I read Your tests correctly, You copy&paste strings, like names including the backslash into the fields of the FTB form?
This could be a problem, because the website takes Your string and interpret any special character as is. So it takes Your backslash and put a backslash in front of it. In fact, internally, there are 2 backslashes at this position, one for the interpreter and one for You.
I'll never be insulted if someone questions my computer expertise. After all, when I first went to school at the age of six we used pencils. We weren't allowed to use the steel nib pens (dipped into inkwells) for a couple of years; then we could hopefully be trusted not to get the nibs crossed, or make ink blots on the pages.
If I have a problem I ask my grand-son; he is thirteen but I have been asking him since he was about eight.
But no, the example I copied and pasted was only so that you could see exactly what was on my page. Not what I usually do, though I will be especially careful in the future...
The problem seems to have occurred when I inserted (as described) the nick-name, WITHIN DOUBLE QUOTES, USING THE EDIT/COPY FUNCTION IN THE ON-LINE TREE.
I will continue to use the opera browser and be careful to only insert nicknames within the double quote, using Family Tree Builder.
Fine, it was no offense meant (I don't know how to say in english, in german we say: war nicht böse gemeint, nicht übelnehmen). A little bit humor in the life is good for the soul, isn't it?
Anyway. Did You know, that You can enter the person's nicknames in a separate field?
On the online tree You find this inside the person's profile. Enter without quotes, but separated with commas. The website displays this in the form Hans "Johnny" Muster.
With FTB this field is under the button Names inside the persosn details. Unfortunatelly, the displayed name is without the nickname(s). It is inside the persons box as part of the infolist. Maybe, in a future version of FTB will be fixed.
