What steps did you take to add the father? You should be choosing the
Add=>Add Person=>Father from the Main Menu (or click on the stick figure
w/plus symbol icon and choose father). Anything else requires added steps,
meaning usually that you will need to go to the child's Person View,
highlight the Father tag in the Tag Box, and choose the Edit=>Toggle
Primary option from the Main Menu (or press thew asterisk key).
Hope this helps -
