Tuesday's Tip - Customize the Name View
I work off of the Name List and Search Lists A LOT. There is a customization you can do that you might not find unless you are one of those people that likes to right click everything to find "hidden" features.
Open the Name List (or a saved Search List) and click the Detail tab over on the right. This is what you will see.
Now right click or double click on any of the labels (Born, Bapt, Died, etc). and you will see this popup.
You have 98 things to choose from and if you choose Event or Hashtag, you have even more, as many as you have entered into Legacy. Also notice that there are Save and Load buttons on this screen. You can save up to 10 different sets of labels. This is great when you work on different projects.
And here is what my labels look like after I customized them.
There are so many different ways to customize your screens so that you see the information you want to see. This will help save you time when you are researching.
