Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
"Hidden" Tools (Beginner)
Legacy has a couple of nifty navigational tools and one informational tool on the Family View that new users don't see right away. If you hover your mouse in special spots on the screen you will see colored bars appear. These bars will let you rotate between spouses, siblings, and parents (if they have more than one set) without having to open those dialog boxes.
There is one other helpful "hidden" popup on the Family View.
When you click this colored box you get a very handy popup that shows you when the husband and wife were added to your file and when they were last modified including their marriage information. It will also tell you if they were imported into your file or if you added them by hand.
These "hidden" gems will save you time navigating through immediate family members and knowing when you added someone or last modified them is always interesting information. Here is a bonus hint. If you go to Search > Find > Detailed Search you can find people that were added or modified on, before, or after a certain date.
