GEDCOM import of variation names

Post by zmichele » Sun Dec 17, 2017 6:08 pm

We took note of the issue you experienced. That's why we have added support for alternate names in our next version of Heredis coming out in february. We encourage you to wait a few more weeks in order to check out the new trial version and then keep us posted. We thank you for your patience and wish you a happy new year!
