Can't make corrections!

I was perfectly happy using PAF 4, but when I bought a new computer, I downloaded and installed PAF 5. At this point, I'm pretty much ready to dump it and go back to PAF 4.

I need to correct some place name info for an individual. Oops! I can't edit the info that's there already. I tried typing the corrected info completely from scratch. That didn't work. Can't even just delete the incorrect entry and leave a blank space!

Obviously, as research progresses, corrections will have to be made frequently as better info becomes available, so this is a HUGE problem. The whole program is pretty much worthless if I can't make changes as needed.

Is there a patch or work-around? Or do I go back to PAF 4?

Carol
