I am curious as to whether there has been any consideration of releasing a LINUX version of Legacy?
I have recently started using UBUNTU LINUX for most applications, and have reached a point where Legacy and an occasional photo editing job are the only reasons I ever boot to Windows. While the "Gramps" genealogy program lacks a lot of the features of Legacy, it is sufficient for reference most of the time, and I just update my Legacy database by GEDCOM. It would really be nice to be able to actually USE Legacy while I research on the internet.

One of the biggest shortcomings of Legacy, which I had hoped would be addressed in Legacy 7, is the inability to scroll in the name list. After selecting "name list" on the tool bar, one should be able to click and hold on the scroll bar to drag the name list up or down on the screen to find a particular name. That is a basic Windows feature, and I don't understand why it is not available on the name list.

Regarding the request for Legacy support for Linux--frankly, Legacy is the only reason I have not switched permanently out of Windows.

I just use the wheel on the mouse.

Any idea as to when the "all-in-one" Chart option will be available?

Can you give me any indication when Australian sources will be included?
Also, I haven't been able to find a way to cite an online index. For example, the first port of call in New South Wales when you are looking for a birth would be the index to the Births Deaths and Marriages register. How would you record that in SourceWriter?

Does the program support Unicode UFT-8 character set fonts? Our language -Vietnamese- relies on those fonts for our important and special accents.

Inglewood Mum - use this template: "Add a Generic Source > Online Database". This template will work for all online databases/indexes.

Also would like to see Australian sources included asap.

Have not found a way to cite a Passport (copy or original privately held), unless it is an online record. I would have thought Sourcewriter would prompt for Issuing Country, Passport Number, etc.
