Update Release Notes

This page contains a list of fixes and changes in recent updates to Reunion 12.

Reunion 12, build 80122

  • Added the ability to search source records using "starts with" search method, as well as the "contains" method. The selection of search method for sources appears in the Show menu, at the top of the Sources sidebar and the List Sources window.
  • Improved the appearance and readability of highlighted, colored text in lists and sidebars.
  • Restored the "# of citations" item to the Attributes menu (when selecting fields in the List window).
  • In the drop-down Edit Fact and Edit Event windows, the state of the Initial Caps button will be saved.
  • Improved titling of event memos in Person Sheets and Family Group Sheets in web output
  • Fixed a problem that could cause a crash when quitting Reunion if the List Places window was open.
  • In Edit Family > Marriage > Events > Notes, choosing "Enter Source Number" from the "Add Source" pop-up menu now works properly. This was accidentally broken in the previous build.
  • Clipboard sidebar - fixed a problem where an unselected link in the Clipboard would not be deleted when using the right-click pop-up menu shortcut to delete links in the Clipboard.
  • Clipboard sidebar - fixed a problem with column-width spacing.
  • In the fields displayed "under the source couple" buttons in the family view, the proper font will be applied to the date feasibility warning.
  • Fan charts - fixed a problem when saving a "graphic file" or copying the chart to the clipboard. This would result in an image with the right side clipped to the first generation. This only happened when the second generation didn't have ancestors on the right side and if the Group Parents option was checked.
  • Fixed an issue where certain sequences of actions in the Edit Person panel could make the app "beep" and get stuck; or, could result in a crash when quitting the app.
