This option is controlled by the "Children of Each Spouse" option on the Include tab of the Report Options screen.

Pedigree View - Added a Right arrow and Left arrow icon to the small boxes that let you navigate to the next higher or lower generation.

TempleReady - When creating TempleReady submission in Batch mode, a log file is now written out that shows the date created, filename and "Submitted" entry for each file in the batch. The log file is called Batch.txt and is created in the same folder as the Legacy.exe file. The file looks like this:

TempleReady - The title prefix and suffix are now included in the submission file.

19 April 2001 - Build

TempleReady PreQualifying - Legacy now takes "Before" and "After" into account when determining if a person died over the age of eight. For example, a person how was born "Bef 1 Jan 1900" and died "Aft 1 Jan 1906" will be considered over age eight for qualifying purposes. TempleReady itself can then make the final decision as to allow it or not.

TempleReady PreQualifying - When qualifying groups of people in the current search list, sealing to parents and spouses that are not on the list is not done. It is as if the people in the list are the only people in the file.

Report Titles - Added two new title fields. [HusbUID] and [WifeUID]. These return the Husband's and the Wife's User ID numbers respectively.

Descendant Books - If using "blank lines for missing information", blank lines were not getting printed for spouse's parents. Now they are.

Descendant Charts - The "sp:" is no longer used in front of spouse lines. (some aren't really spouses.) A standard double line is used instead.

Child Status - If the option to Display Child Status is set we now display the Child Status after the child's name on the Family tab of the Name List. Twin, Adopted, etc...

Dates - If you are using a Date Display Format of mm-dd-yyyy then you must have the Input Format set to month-day-year. If you are using a Date Display Format of dd-mm-yyyy then you must have the Input Format set to day-month-year. Legacy now enforces this rule.

Merge - There is now a "Not Duplicates" button on the screen that makes it much faster to mark pairs of individuals as Not Dups than having to go through the Options button at the bottom. Alt-X is also a shortcut key that can be used for the same purpose. (Available only in the Deluxe Edition.)

Private - All fields can now include [[private information]] that will be removed when printed.

Staying where you were is nice when you are working your way down a list fixing things. To toggle the option, click the Options button and then click on the "Jump With Edit Sorts" option. When it is checked, you will move with the resort. When it is unchecked you will stay where you were.

Pictures - When printing the Picture Filename List from the Scrapbook, the location of the actual picture to be printed is now shown instead of the stored picture location (which might be different if the picture was moved to a different folder.)

Reports - The lines drawn around the Index and Location Index pages are now controlled by the Page Setup lines option (instead of having two different options, one on the Page Setup and the other on the Index Options).

Reports - When printing reports with pictures to HTML output, the pictures are copied to the output file location so they will show up in the report when it is displayed.

Location Sorting - We have added three more levels for a total of nine. The reverse-order sort now handles any number of levels.

There is a new link on the bottom of the regular download web page for downloading the Maintenance Pack 1.

Indexes - Indexes are now sorted as Surname, Given names Suffix instead of Surname, Title Given names Suffix.

On the Events tab all events will get the sources assigned to them. On the LDS tab the currently displayed information will get the sources assigned to them.
