Reunion 9.05

Posted by admin on May 21, 2008

Reunion 9.05 has been released.

New features :

• “Find on this Page” added to note fields, logs, and sources. This makes it easy to find words in long note fields, logs, and the free-form text field of source records.
• Repair multimedia links – a new feature to help you find and resolve broken multimedia links. See the new Repair button in: Reunion -> Preferences / Multimedia / Locations.
• “Paste as Plain Text” – a new menu item for pasting text in notes and logs that will strip text styles and colors from the pasted text.
• Enter source by number. If you’re familiar with your source numbers you can document the source of data even faster.
• Added the ability to search for “married name” in the Index and in the family card search box. Just use a dash before the name in the search box. For example, searching for “-clinton,hil” would find Hillary Clinton, even though her maiden name was Rodham.
• In Sibling popup menus, child status is appended to names of siblings.
