Hi,

I have a tree with several thousands ancestors, and a relevant number of them are of Spanish origin, where an individual's second last name is the first last name of the mother.
When I export to GEDCOM the individual gets the following output:

0 @ind01162@ INDI
1 NAME Anastasia /Albinarrate/
2 DISPLAY Anastasia Albinarrate Tobalina
3 LINES 4
2 GIVN Anastasia
2 SURN Albinarrate
2 LAST2 Tobalina

Where the NAME field, ends up without the second last name being included, and that means that other programs and services lack information when I import into them.
In the above example the proper output should have been

1 NAME Anastasia /Albinarrate Tobalina/

I did find in options how to properly configure the Displayed name. But I could not find a way to do the same thing for the gedcom exports.

Is this a known issue? Is there a solution to it?

It would appear that you are using GenoPro's builtin gedcom export (i.e. File/Export/Export to Gedcom format..) . unfortunately this does not result in a very useable Gedcom file for interchange as is uses a number of non-standard tags.

This is why I wrote the Ëxport to Gedcom' skin for GenoPro's Report Generator. It produces a Gedcom file in a standard format that is much more suitable for import to other packages. Use GenoPro's Tools / Generate Report and then select the report {EN} Export to Gedcom.

I have tested your case and second names are handled in the manner you require.
