Overview

The Notes Section includes properties related to notes in the data file.

Properties

Add Note to Global Sentence

The Add Note to Global Sentence checkbox determines whether the value of a tag's NOTE subrecord is added to the output of a global sentence. The property is intended for use with GEDCOM files written by RootsMagic.

If Add Note to Global Sentence is checked, GedSite will add the note value to the end of the sentence output. The note is added as if "< [M:NOTE]>" was added to the sentence.

Add Note to Local Sentence

The Add Note to Local Sentence checkbox determines whether the value of a tag's NOTE subrecord is added to the output of a local sentence. The property is intended for use with GEDCOM files written by RootsMagic.

If Add Note to Local Sentence is checked, GedSite will add the note value to the end of the sentence output. The note is added as if "< [M:NOTE]>" was added to the sentence.

Usage Notes

[M] Variables

If a sentence includes a variable that maps to GedSite's [M] variable, using one of the "Add Note" properties above could result in the note being added to the output twice. As described on the Sentences help page, if you do not specify a part name, the M parameter returns the Text part if it is not empty. If the Text part is empty, it returns the Note part.

As of version 2.12, no supported sentence languages have a variable that maps to [M].

Split Note Parts

If note text includes the characters ||, GedSite splits the text into multiple parts. Given this note text:

This is the first part. || This is the second part.

... GedSite will create these variable values:

[M:Note] = "This is the first part."
[M:Note2] = "This is the second part."

You may specify as many parts as you need.
