Hi Tom, I might ask Mr. Findlay. But how it stands now it is not a problem anymore. The word "Living" has disappeared from my data.
Thanks for telling me about the link in FT. It is perfect to have it right there but also in the "Link/Upload or "Check for changes" window because that is when I want to use it most.
I had not noticed that "secret" icon. :-)
So the second part of my question about copy/paste PID's is also answered.
But be prepared I might have many more question yet!!!!! :-)

I'm not sure what is going on, Peter. AQ retains the PIDs for me. You
might want to send a note directly to Gaylon Findlay

You will like have to send him a copy of the backup of your AQ file.
When I want to see the FT entry for the person and I'm in AQ, all I
have to do is to have the person highlighted in Family, Pedigree, or
even Name List and select FamilySearch... View person in FamilySearch.
The system fires up my browser, asks me to log in, and then open FT
with the Person View of the person I want to see.
So, something is going on in your system. It may be a setting or
something, but my copy has retained the PIDs even for living people.
Now, there may be some simple explanation for this, but I don't know
what it is.
Hopefully, Gaylon can get you a resolution to the problem.

>>PS: a related question ; How can you have the PID show in the edit screen? I am using AQ to open my PAF data and all records have the PID in the custom ID field. It would be handy to be able to copy and paste the PID when working on the FT website.
