With the new layout that has come into effect - the month is now showing first, rather than the date. Is there some way to change this, as it will likely mean that I will make numerous mistakes as it is not normal for us in NZ to have the month first?

It is sad too that details of places & years no longer save as a dropdown, as this used to save lots of time...........

I did try to add an image in - but there was nowhere to include it below without a url

Yes we did update the user interface for the "edit person". We just fixed the date format glitch. USA sites will have Month/Day/Year, others will have Day/Month/Year

We are working on the drop down suggestion for places.

Thank you for fixing the dating system. I look forward to the other update being done soon

With the new update it would have been nice to have a notes addition for marriages like the ones for births and deaths. Is there some reason why this can't be added ?

Hi Alyssa

Fully support your frustration on both counts. Just had to add 8 baptisms from the same parish, and had to type out each one separately- grrr!

Can’t see what the need was to change anything - some programmer trying to prove something?

I do wish such cosmetic changes are not so high on your agenda, as there are so many other problems that need to be attended to, such as spouse order not recognised in Reports.

This latest cosmetic change has inexplicably reduced the window of the "Page" to only three characters. The field accepts many more characters, and I use it for reference data e.g. Bar 298/321. Please allow the window to show more characters, or allow it to be sized.

Further - the "Notes" window in edit mode for all fields (Birth, Death, Marriage and custom fields). The icon on the bottom left of the notes field indicates it is sizeable. But it is only sizable downwards, not horizontally. This window is only 11 characters wide. Why? It makes it very difficult to manage when editing.
