Re: Problems using Facts page
Mike, that was a very thoughtful explanation! Thank you for indulging the lack of education of an obviously beginner level user.
My comments and answers are inline within your explanation

Yes, but I sometimes choose the "reorder all" when given the option rather than step through the individual data.
I feel foolish to admit it, but I had never paid attention to the bullets or arrows preceding the facts and did not know their use or use them.
By adding a date to an occupation fact, the birth entry (with a date) jumped to the correct place. Now the birth entry and occupation entry
both have blue bullets, I'm not sure of the prior indicator. I have few entries with dates in my Facts tab, I guess I think my ancestors deserve
my attention and overlooked my own entries.
With the timeline off, the graduation entry shows with a light blue arrow, which it seems is actually not my graduation, rather it's my wife's -
which I found by clicking the arrow - which is a new revelation for today! I did not know that was a navigation button!
It seems there is quite a lot I don't know!
I know the distinction, but now I better understand it's use. Are there other Family Records? Is a child's birth a family record?
Indeed it does after I've entered my 'own' graduation fact.
The fact I originally asked about has a light blue arrow, and I discovered it is a fact from my wife's profile. However, it's the only fact that shows on my Facts tab
from my wife's data when Timeline Facts is off. Is that normal? Why would that particular fact from my wife show on my facts tab?
Another lesson I've learned (or re-learned) today, thank you!
