Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Setting Bookmarks (Beginner)
Legacy has two different ways you can bookmark someone. The first way are the three Quick Bookmarks at the bottom of the Family View.
These Quick Bookmarks make it easy to get to a specific person quickly. I have myself bookmarked and the two people I am currently researching. If I mouse click one of those names Legacy will immediately navigate to that person.
To set a Quick Bookmark make sure you have the person you want highlighted in the Family View and then RIGHT mouse click in one of the three Quick Bookmark fields. If there is a name already a name there it will be overwritten.
If you want to clear the Quick Bookmarks completely, hold down the Windows CTRL button and then right click into the Quick Bookmark field.
The three Quick Bookmarks are great for those ancestors you are currently working with but what if three bookmarks isn't enough? How about 200 more. To mark someone using a regular bookmark highlight that person and then RIGHT mouse click the book icon in the extreme bottom left corner of the Family View.
To see your bookmarks LEFT mouse click the book icon.
Using the two bookmark features will save you time as you are navigating your file.
