Show "biological" on a profile's Family Members chart if it has been explicitly set
If a child becomes a step-child, then it is possible to add a type of "step" to the (new) Parent-Child Relationship. It is also possible to add a type of "biological" to the Parent-Child Relationship. While even I would assume that "biological" is the default, it can be useful to be totally explicit in some complex cases. For instance, this screenshot shows my GG-GM as the step-child to her mother's husband of later life:
NB - this is a screenshot from Beta - I would not normally consider a 25y woman to be a step-child if her mother married someone new. I just entered "Step" for illustrative purposes.
My issue is that the Family Members diagram for Emily's Profile (correctly) shows "Step" against her relationship to Henry Stubbs but doesn't show the explicitly entered "Biological" against her relationship to her mother. See diagram:
Now, I presume that "obviously" the default is biological and that therefore someone thought that there was no point in showing "biological" in the above diagram, but if (and only if) I've entered "biological" as the relationship type, then I would expect "biological" to appear in the diagram.
So - please show the value of the Parent-Child relationship type on the Family Members diagram for a Profile, even if the type is (explicitly) set to "biological".
- Consistency with how "step" etc are displayed;
- If someone feels that entering "biological" adds value, then the software should not ignore that person's view when it comes to the diagram.
- Yes, I know that "biological" will appear in the Parent-Child Relationship window (first screenshot here) but that is an extra step away and there is no clue that there is any value in looking at that window;
- If the Parent-Child Relationship is left empty / blank (i.e. the default case), I would not expect nor want "biological" to appear on the Family Members diagram.
