Place names in Initial caps in Heredis 2020

Post by dgarciamagarinos » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:40 pm

Dear all,

I have noticed a small annoyance in Heredis 2020 which I was not having in Heredis 2019 (I just double checked):

Location names are shown in initial caps in the Immediate Family view and in the data view. For example:

the town name "Alcaclá de Henares" is shown as "Alcalá De Henares" ("De" with upper case), which is wrong.

This happens also with French, German or English place names:

Frankfurt am Main becomes Frankfurt Am Main (which is wrong)
Inchy-en-Artois becomes Inchy-En-Artois
Stratford-upon-Avon becomes Stratford-Upon-Avon

One can switch the settings to show place names all in uppercase but I on't like them in all caps.

Is there any workaround for this? Is it some setting in my database? As I said, it worked well in Heredis 2019.

Perhaps, there is something that can be changed in the SQLLite database like the particles in surnames?

Thanks for any suggestion!

Daniel

PS. Edited to add that I don't have this issue in my main PC. I must have edited the prerence file with SQLlite to avoid this bug. I will see if I remember what I did and post the findings.

Yes, you probably added one (or all) the keys shown hereunder to the table "Preferences" of the file ".prefsLibWorld.sqlite"
