I have a tree with a man (let's call him Bob) who had multiple wives, and many descendants from each. This results in a very horizontally sprawling tree, and a comically long marriage line from Bob, positioned beside his 1st wife, all the way across to the last.

My ideal solution: I'd have a very simple tree, just of Bob and his many wives, all visible at once. Then, separate descendant trees for each marriage. Clicking a wife in the simple tree should lead to the applicable descendant tree. This part I've managed just fine. However, clicking Bob in any of the descendant trees should link back to Bob in the simple one. Which is... proving more difficult.

Long story short: can you create multiple hyperlinks that all lead directly back to the same instance of an individual? If I create more than one, no matter how I go about it, it turns into a circular affair (i.e. original Bob > Bob 2 > Bob 3 > Bob 4 > original Bob > repeat).

(I do realise I could just click a wife to go back to her instance on the simple tree. But it still leaves me with this circuit of Bobs. Also, I don't want to (I had actually made the wife links one-way for just that reason.) And thirdly, now the multi-hyperlink question has occurred to me, it'll bug me till I figure it out.)

Hope someone can help!

There is a simple solution.  In your descendant trees display the Properties of Bob's hyperlink and then under the Hyperlink tab of the Properties dialogue set Hyperlink Action to be External Hyperlink and set External Hyperlink to be the current .gno name followed by ?id=<idno> , where <idno> is Bob's ID on the simple genomap.  e.g. familytree.gno?id=ind00011

Hope I have explained that OK, essentially it's an 'external' hyperlink back to itself.
