event evidence on Family Journal Report
Posted by: Kal Perry Date: May 07, 2000 at 20:43:15

I've been entering evidence by clicking the E button next to a specific event. I hadn't previewed this on any reports, so thought I'd check it out. I'm not happy with how it works.

Using Advanced Editing Mode, I entered 3 evidence items on the birth event.
(1) evidence at the top, which pertains to the entire event.
(2) evidence for the free-form date
(3) evidence for the place.

What shows on the Family Journal Report (FJR)seems odd to me.

A. Research FJR. All evidence items [1,2,3] are numbered & listed individually on the NOTES AND REFERENCES page. Good! But, for the birth event on the FJR, only #3 shows. #1 and #2 are missing.

B. Final FJR. All evidence items [1,2,3] are combined into 1 footnote. This is OK, I guess, except I was expecting something like a comma separating the three evidence items.

Does anyone noticed this? Am I doing something wrong? I'm using UFT v3.0

Incidentally, the Family Group Sheet does a good job in reporting the different evidence items.
