Tag problems

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem to get some tag sentences to behave how they should.


I like to have a line space between each tag output so I have two carriage returns at the beginning of most tag sentences. I have had it that way for years and it has served me well.


I have now decided I would like to try an indent in the first line of each tag's output, and have added a [:TAB:] to the sentences, after the carriage returns, eg: the Burial tag is [:CR:][:CR:][:TAB:][PF] was buried <[D]> <in the [L]> <[M]>. I added the [:TAB:] to the sentences in the Master Tag Type List. Most of the sentences work as expected but a few misbehave, notably Occupation, Census, Death and Burial (of the one's I use most).


On the Burial tag entry screen, for example, when I click on the Tag type and select Burial, I see the correct sentence structure [:CR:][:CR:][:TAB:][PF] was buried <[D]> <in the [L]> <[M]> but when I click on the Sentence structure tab below the Memo box there is no [:TAB:], but there is a single space where the [:TAB:] should be [:CR:][:CR:] [PF] was buried <[D]> <in the [L]> <[M]>. If I close the gap it re-appears next time I open that tag. The funny thing is, there are quite a few occasions where the sentences are correct. I've manually changed a few but not all the ones that are correct are the ones that I changed.


It may be easier to revert to what I had before and remove the TABs from the Master Tag List. I did do a backup before I started playing around with it, so I might do a restore tomorrow, unless someone has a clue what is happening.

Daryl,

 

I can think of two possible issues that might cause this. One is that there is a local sentence in the individual tags that fail that need to be removed. The other is that the sentence in the Tag Type is entered in a different language than is being used in the Tags.

Thanks, Terry.

 

Couldn't figure it out, so went back my previous version. Might revisit it at another time, when I've got more time.
