Gedcom Publisher Version 1.06 Released

This release includes several enhancements.

There are new options for adding people to chapters:

  • Several Chapter People items now support an option to include a list of people prior to the first person entry. The list will automatically include the right people and may be sorted in the same sequence as the people appear in the chapter or in a different sequence.
  • The new Chapter People - Descendants item is a Chapter People item where people are included via a generation number and organized in family groups. This makes it easy to create chapters where descendants of a given progenitor are organized by generation and family.
  • The new Chapter People - Picked item is a Chapter People item where people are chosen by ID number or via the Picklist. This item is convenient when you want to select several people and use the optional list of people capability.

Version 1.06 also includes the new Descendant Lineage Person Entry Item. It adds a lineage path to the person entry, where the path may be ancestor names or a genealogical number in one of several formats.

Lastly, this release includes a new Names.Pronoun Substitution property to control pronoun substitution.

See the Change Log for other minor chnages.
