Yes, the default Sentence for Principals do not include other
Witnesses. If you modify the Sentence for the Principal(s) of a Tag
to include the other Witnesses ( [WO] ) then the Witnesses should
print in the child's narrative. Do not use the [W] witness Variable
in a Principal's Sentence unless you want to include the
Principal(s) at that point.
Hope this helps -
