Son (John Beardsall) born before father not showing a Data Problem warning flag. Is this a bug?
It's showing as a Data Problem on John Beardsall LK4Z-KZ7, the father.
And on John Beardsall M494-7JT, the son.

Sorry, I should have expanded my question a little more. I meant, "Why isn't it showing as a Data Problem in the Landscape view?" As I illustrated, I have that option turned on and there is a flag against another individual, albeit for a missing standardized birthplace. Are only certain types of data problem warnings shown in the pedigree views?
I don't rely on pedigree view for details, so I can't say what the program is meant to do. In my experience, on any of the genealogy websites, there is a loss of detail in any overview, so I don't rely on it to be correct.
I use Landscape as the basis for a lot of my work in Family Tree, so I would expect it to be consistent in showing all types of data problem flags - whether for non-standardized places or child's-birth-before-parent type warnings. I'm hoping this will be escalated as either a bug, or an inconsistency that needs to be addressed.
This surely has to be a bug - what else are the options on the diagram there for, if not to control the diagram? The fact that it shows up on the father and not the son is a red flag inconsistency.
Just to confirm - I have "Data Problems" set to show on the diagrams. Here's the deliberately erroneous setup in Beta of my GG-GF and G-GF:
The profiles of both James and John show the red-problem-flag. But it's only on the father in the landscape view. A similar inconsistency shows in the portrait format view, viz:
I totally rely on these flags appearing - as advertised - because I'm not going to keep going into every profile to see if something has happened to create an error. That's the worst-case version of this error - I set everything up fine - then some other researcher, with the best of intentions, triggers a data "error/warning". Now I discover that I'm not going to see that unless I go into the profile. But why would I? I just do a visual audit of the tree in that area every so often.
