When I try to use the "Add New Family" feature everything works fine except that the headings at the top of the columns follow the USA style.

I cannot change to my style because everywhere I look the radio buttons for place style are grayed out.

Can someone tell me where I can change this style?

Please check:

File > Preferences > Program Options > Data Entry
.... and make sure that "Data Entry Mode" is set to "Advanced"
Thanks, Vera

You can also click on the Setup button at the bottom left of the Add New Family screen and find options to set the style for selected tag types. As Vera suggested, you must be in Advanced Data Entry mode to change styles.

Thanks for the replies.
Advanced Data entry mode is selected.

Virginia- in the setup box the "style type" box has both radio buttons grayed out

Note: It is only in the add family part that the style is set to the US style and cannot be changed.

Yes this is the same page, however you also gave me the answer.
I noticed in yours that you had birth highlighted in the selected tag types in the box at the top, I highlighted birth on mine and then the place style became available.
I had name-var highlighted which means i could not get the place style to show

Problem solved, thanks for the assistance.

Good. I noticed too that with the name-var you don't get the place style so I moved down to the Birth tag.

OK so I wrote too quick, the problem is not solved.
the column headings are not the same as the style selected.
As stated earlier this only happens in the add new family or add multiple people
I have an image which shows this if it would help.

This is a known bug if I recall. I just tested it and can replicate it. I believe that it is just a loose end in the implementation of the Add Multiple Person feature. The selected style is shown on the template setup screen but doesn't carry to the column headings.

OK

I will wait till the loose end gets tied up.
