In Persons table you can do all actions described in Interface overview, you can create, edit or delete a person, you can view information about a person, build a family tree and a lineage list.

Information from the table can be exported to a file or printed. You can also get statistics.

How to create a person

The menu Create allows to create a new person related to the active person:

Father and Mother are active only if they haven't been created for the current (active) person yet. Brother and Sister are active only if the active person has a mother or a father (or both). A person of unknown sex cannot have a child, even an adopted one.
Attention! All actions in Create menu lead to the creation of a new person. If you need to connect the active person with another person that was created before, you need to create or edit a corresponding event (a marriage, for example) or to specify a mother or a father in person's edit window.

How to edit a person

On the Information tab of the person edit window there is some main information about a person:

All information is divided into several groups:

  • Photo. This is the person's main photo. The button in the right upper corner of the photo opens the menu of actions connected to the photo. You can choose a photo from a file, in this case a new document is created and then set as the person's main photo. You can as well choose an existing document (a photo) connected to the person (from the list). No photo clears the main photo window, this action does not delete the document that was used before clearing.
  • Data group under the photo. Sex can be changed only if it does not contradict the events where this person participates. For example, if a woman participates in Birth event as a mother, her sex cannot be changed. If the person does not have any children created, No children option is active, you can turn it on. If at least one child is created, the option is changed to has children and becomes inactive. Levels of confidentiality and authenticity are set at your discretion.
