Re: Person edit screen

I imagine you are talking about the Facts tab of the Property Box of Individual records.


The colons separate the fact Label from its Value for your custom Attributes.

If you check the lower pane for each fact you will see a similar Label with a colon and its Attribute Value.


The facts without colons are either standard Facts (Events and Attributes) or custom Events.

What is the meaning of the colons? Some are my custom facts and others are not
