Re: Report with timeline

But if the Query results are copied to a spreadsheet or a word-processor table, the relevant cells can be formatted to text-wrap their contents.

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

A good text editor, which I use for all sorts of applications including GEDCOM and LUA files is PSPad.

Re: Showing ancestor ages in Focus Window

If you know a person has died, you can (and perhaps should?) add a Death event, without any details such as Date, Place, Source if those details are unknown. Then FH won't calculate an Age as if the person is still alive.

Re: Multiple Names

In FH you can use the All tab of the Property Box or the Records Window to add as many names as you like, and each Name can have a link to a Source and a link to a Note.
