Re: Witness problem
Apologies, but it appears that I have confused myself. I have actually been using the Godparent witness role existing within the baptism fact. It is this that I am having the described problem with. My custom created fact will be deleted.

Sorry Mike, but you will have to give us a bit more detail of what you have done and what you can see.
You say you created a custom fact for Godparent but then say you are using it as a witness.
Please confirm which of the following you used:
1) Tools > Fact Types… and the New… button to create a custom fact called Godparent that is now shown in the Event/Attribute list.
2) Tools > Fact Types… selected an event such as Baptism or Birth, then used Edit… button to create Witness Role: Godparent (although that should already exist for Baptism).
Exactly where are the sentences you describe?
The top half of the Facts tab is a list of all the facts and below that are the details of one selected fact.
At the very bottom, there is a Sentence: box.
Are you talking about the Date: box near the top of that lower section that probably says Godparent immediately above?
With that clearer understanding, we should be able to help.
