Not possible to search for alternate names

Post by ejan » Fri Mar 02, 2018 3:16 pm

I am currently testing Heredis 2018

It is great that alternate names are now supported when importing from GEDCOM. But I wish it was possible to search for alternate names as well. It seems to me that only primary names are searchable in the Persons list - this sometimes makes it harder to locate persons in the database.

You are right, we are going to improve searching in a further release.

Thank you for the response,

for me (in the process of evaluating which genealogy software to use) it is very encouraging to see positive responses like this to missing feature reports.

But as I just asked in another thread: Are you able to say anything about the timeframe? Will there be regular updates through the year, or will this have to wait for Heredis 2019?

regards,
Jan

This improvement requires consequent developments and won't be integrated in a regular update of Heredis 2018.
