Many thanks for the hint regarding my problem -
<I have been trying to bookmark 'Sir William Dunbar 1st. Baronet of Durn (1:8343)'
< but all the Bookmark Manager will record is 'William Dunbar (1:8343)'
I deleted the bookmark; entered exactly the same wording as a Name-Var
tag, made the Name-Var tag Primary, book-marked this, and all the text
appeared as the bookmark.
To check the original, I then deleted the bookmark, made the original
one Primary, which when bookmarked worked as it should have done.
Bit of a fudge, but it worked.
Having avoided the customising of Name-Var tags, perhaps now is the time
