There's a number of ways to change this behaviour, amongst others:
- Change the label by changing the marriage (MARR) tag. Click on the
chain link icon to the right of the event type drop-down on the event
tag, then delete "at church" in the "local" field (bottom right) or
change is to something else.
- Make different marriage tags, with one (_MARR_CHURCH for instance)
for a church wedding, another (e.g. _MARR_CIVIL) for civil marriage
Reparsing is a sore point. I don't like it either. The thing is, once
you understand what it does and why, you sort of work around it. But I
remain pretty annoyed at the interpretation of anything lower case as
a place modifier (I have to enter "Rue Savane" instead of "rue Savane"
or lose the "rue").
