Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Color Coding Gender (Beginner)
In my personal file boys are blue, girls are pink, and those persons with an unknown gender are green.
You will see these colors on the Name List, Search Lists, the Index View, Descendant View, Pedigree View, Children's List and Siblings List. You can change these colors to whatever you like or you can removed the colors completely (black text for all genders).
Starting in the Family View, Go to Options > Change Colors. A pink dialog box will appear. You can ignore that box for now.
Now LEFT click in the Children's List area and you will see a new popup.
I love color so I really like all of the color customization options that Legacy has.
