I have Generations 8.5a installed on Windows XP.
My miscellaneous notes are in the form of properly constructed narrative, formatted with sentences and paragraphs. When I transfer this data via GEDCOM, the narrative becomes a long string of sentences, but the paragraphs have disappeared. It no longer has the easy to read factor. What is causing this, and how can it be remedied?
Under the Edit Notes Section, I have created a field entitled 'Sources'. Under this heading I record the census reference information, one line at a time, for neatness of presentation. Beneath this information I add any other relevant source information. When this information is transferred by GEDCOM, the first character of the first line disappears, ie 841, 851,irth, arriage etc and again the neat formatting does not hold, with each entry appearing in a continuous string. Can anyone please explain what is going on, and how this can be remedied?
Incidentally, when I open the GEDCOM in WordPad I discovered that there was a string 1 CONC 1 CONC irth Certificate. There is a double space between the first 1 CONC and the second 1 CONC. Is this a fault in the Generations programme, and is there a work around?
Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
