Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Highlighting Multiple Locations
One of the beta testers posted on this recently in response to a question someone asked. I thought this would make a good tip of the day.
Let's say you want to make a list of everyone that uses Lamar County, Mississippi. I am going to sort the Location List by state then county then town so that all the Lamar County locations sort together. I can then highlight all of the locations using the Windows command CTRL (hold the button down) and then select the locations using the mouse.
Over on the right only the people using the LAST location will show up in the box and this is where people get a bit confused. To see ALL of the people for ALL of the highlighted locations you need to go to OPTIONS > SHOW LIST.
You can now Tag Everyone in List or you can Create Search List.
