Ira, I suppose you track down your changes in some kind of CHANGES file. If
so, what do you think of posting this file to the list when you announce a
new release of CFT?
This would be a small helpr for those of us who reported somehting in the
past so that we see if our wish/bug report has been corrected?

I seem to be having a problem with Print Previewing an Ancestral Story
covering 5 generations. There are 23 records involved and I have ALL events
included. The "Preparing Report" gets to 65% and then the prog is "Not
responding". My system Resources meter shows System Resources 68% free, User
Resources 68% free and GDI Resources 80% free.
I do not have any trouble if I restrict to 4 generations. There are 13

When I clicked on the Fields icon and began to fill out the fields,
everything went OK until I tried to put a tag on the Death date or place

produce a tag. I found that it wouldn't work for Burial either. I tried
quite a few other events, including user defined events and it worked fine.

- 9. [CFTW] CFTW3 Gedcom 
- I have a few comments to the Gedcom export from CFTW 3 and the
eventual import back into CFTW 2.5
I have CFTW3 set to a non English language (Danish).
Dates with text like ABT, AFT, FROM etc. is not translated to
English in the Gedcom file, but is erroneously written in the
language being used.
CFTW 2.5 is therefore unable to import these dates correctly.

- 10. AW: [CFTW] Name Search and Name Change Event 
- I agree wholeheartedly with this principle concerning maiden names.
However, in the formal records (parish records, censuses etc) the woman may
well be referred to by her married name, even as a widow or divorcee. Thus,
the question is, not how the woman is registered in the database (obviously
by her maiden name), but how well does the database support the fact that
she may have changed her name several times during her lifetime and that
searching for her in the records is thus more difficult.

I have to say that I _really_ like the new option to view and set

Yes, this makes sense. I had thought that they got erased but as you say an
error won't get rid of them.

- 17. [CFTW] Redirected Post by Subscriber 
I have a question: when I have an individual which owns several properties
(all properties are already listed in "Place" directory), do I have to enter
them separately or is there a way to enter them in one sentence (pasted from
"Place"), one by one, separated for example by a semicolon? This would be
very convenient and will save me a lot of time.

- 23. [CFTW] Footnote Alignment - Printed Reports 
- Ira and List,
When odd right/even left page numbering is selected the footnote is right
justified on even pages. My second line of the footnote is short and when
displaced to the right it looks out of place.
Footnote lines can be padded with spaces to eliminate this displacement, as long
as there is a character which will terminate the line following the spaces -
carriage return does not work. Some lines may have information which lends
itself to the insertion of spaces between the 'words' to adjust the l

1. I cannot print reports with 3.04 with my HP 610C. It locks up on
preview and print, and doesn't print a thing!
2. I mentioned a problem with the Database Structure report some time ago.
If the list of disjunct trees is large (e.g. many unconnected persons) there
is a single widow line on the second page and a normal continuation on the
third (i.e there is only one line on the second page although there is more
to print). (I don't think this is only a problem with A4 though)
