Legacy 8 – A Few Issues

Don’t get me wrong…I love Legacy, and like everyone else, I am really excited for for version 8 being released.  It’s been awhile since we’ve had a major upgrade and there are several new features I look forward to using.  But, I’ve noticed a few things that are causing some frustration.

Issue #1 – Hopefully a bug; occurs when working on a multiple-spouse person.  Every time I save my work from the data input screen and exit out, it goes to Family View (as it should) but instead of showing the husband/family I was on when I went into data entry, it reverts back to the “preferred” husband.  I want it to remain on the husband/family from which I started, as it has in previous versions.

Issue #2 – A bug for sure.  On several occasions, I am entering an event and then I hit the Source button to add a source and I get an error message (Run-time error 3021) and the program crashes.  NOT FUN!


So far, that’s all I’ve found.  Relatively minor, but very annoying.  Hopefully these issues will be resolved soon.

    None of my General notes are visible until I print a report. This is a BIG bug as I have all correspondence with cousins pasted in there as well as online trees that are unproven but worth exploring at leastin part, etc.

      I don’t use general notes, so I haven’t experienced this issue…but I do remember someone else mentioning it. There was an update released today, perhaps it’s been fixed?
