Its nice to see the improvement. Thanks.

My reccomendation is to add date of birth (death) also to the Birth Tab (Death Tab) not only to the first TAB. As soon as you are entring detail data to the Birth (Death) tab then you do not see the date.

Speaking of Date of birth in the "General" Tab - Why calculate age only for a deceased people? Why not calculate it to a living individual? Wink

Good point.  I renamed the label from Age to Age of Death.  The age of a living individual is displayed in the family tree and also in the Table Layout.

Age of Death is also displayed in the same places. Is it a big problem to display the Age for a living individual, as well?

There is no room to add another field.  The dialog is full.

Why bother have two fields for age and age of death? They're not differentiated on the actual genogram... I think if you're mucking around in the properties of the individual, you are competent enough to tell that the age displayed is the age now or the age when they died.

While we're on the topic... I can understand the utility of a "General" tab having all of this age info, etc... but having birth data split across two tabs is somewhat cumbersome, especially since the birth source is on a different tab than the birth date (for example). If I only have dates, I put the date on one tab, and the source for that date on another.

The idea is to have the most common information on the General tab. Many genealogy software don't record more information than this. Having the information on the first tab helps new users to view and enter their information quickly without moving across tabs.

Duplicating the birth date implies duplicating the date of death and age because since those date are linked together.  As a result, we would need to repeat the trio 3 times which would be a waste of dialog space.

I understand your plight fully... at the same time, however, making things easier for rookies should not mean making them more difficult for the non-rookies.

The thing is, this window is a Properties window... not a Summary window. The idea of Properties windows is that all related data is grouped together for modification. It's not meant as a summary. That's what the table view is for, or the report, or the genogram. If I'm showing my family tree to someone, I'm not showing them all of the individual properties. That is for data entry, and as such, should be arranged to ease data entry. While most genealogy software is limited in the information they provide, and you've placed all of that info on a single tab, what does that have to do with Genopro? Most info in the real world is not limited to these few fields, so not having the data organized logically makes the dialog confusing.

In my opinion. Sorry... I hate to crybaby about something you guys obviously worked hard on hammering out... Sad

I am not sure if this is the same point being discussed here but I would like to see the date of Birth on the Birth Tab. Presumably there is no problem having the same information appearing in two places.
I have been obtaining information from the IGI and census records and it would be much more convenient to have all the fields on one tab. This is particulary the case when checking data. At the moment the date of Baptism or Christening is not on the same display as birth data.
