marriage date placement
The new version has the marriages after the male and female names. It's easy to get them mixed up with the children. I like the least clutter, especially when teaching since I'm a family history consultant. Adjusting to change is more accessible for me since I'm experienced.
Just another user here, but since the marriage date now clearly separates the couple from their children, I'm not sure what you mean when you say "it's easy go get them mixed up with the children" is the "them" you are referring to the parents? Why is it easy to "mix them up" when there is the increased distance between them and the children?
I like the new position and the new division and am really hoping that this is actually an indication that we might soon be able to see all marriage events for a couple listed right there in the Family Members section and not hidden on the couple relationship page.3
Unlike many others, I don't like the new layout, either. Unfortunately, what works well (and seems logical) for some users proves to be quite the opposite for others!
I think we'll have to get used to this change - as well as a number of other changes that have produced mixed reactions from regular Family Tree users.0
One thing I like about the new placement of the marriage information, is that it has allowed the programmers to start treating the marriage data the same as other data on the page instead of being stuck off on its own. Just like other data, when you hover over the marriage event data, the data block turns grey and you can click anywhere in that area to open a Data View pop up. Things are still not quite the same because the various pencil icons for editing work a bit different and there is no indication of number of sources, but it does seem like they are getting over whatever long standing hurdle has made individual information and couple information so different in genealogy programs.1
