Legacy tip - memorized dates/places

If you are retyping the same date or place for several individuals, you are unnecessarily wearing out your keyboard.

As you enter dates and locations into date and location fields in Legacy, the most recent ten dates and place names are remembered and can be quickly displayed in a popup list and selected.

To display the list of the last ten place names, for example, right-click on the field label to the left of any location field. From the resulting popup list of place names you can select one to fill into the location field by clicking on it.

In the image below (click on it to view it), the popup list was displayed after right-clicking on the born label.
