Re: Custom ID

Yes, on the Property Box cog Menu choose Options… instead of Customize Property Box...

Click the Captions… button and in the Individual template add LDS: %INDI.REFN%


If you don’t want LDS: shown when there is no Custom Id value then use:

=CombineText(“LDS: “,%INDI.REFN%,,)

I’ve managed to use the Custom ID in the Individual Property Box, and renamed it as ‘LDS ID’.  Although it takes a whole line up, it works well. I was wondering whether it could be moved up to the Captions bar alongside the Individual ID?
