How to Use Bookmarks


Bookmarks are place holders you can drop on an individual or a couple so that you can return to them later. There are two kinds of bookmarks: Regular Bookmarks and Quick Bookmarks. 


Regular Bookmarks
To drop a bookmark on a person or a couple:

1. From the Family or Pedigree View, make sure the person or couple are highlighted in the main Husband and Wife boxes.

2. Right-click on the Bookmark button in the lower-left corner of the window. The person and their current spouse (if any) are added to the Bookmark List. To see the couple on the list, click on the Bookmark button in the lower-left corner of the window.

To jump to a bookmark:
1. If you want to jump to a person on the Bookmark List, open the list by clicking on the Bookmark button in the lower-left corner of the window.  Highlight the desired person and then click the Go button at the bottom of the list.  (Or you can just double-click on the desired person.)  200 couples can be bookmarked.

Quick Bookmarks
At the bottom of the main window, below the Family or Pedigree View and just above the bottom status bar, are three bookmark boxes labeled with a small 1, 2, and 3.  These are called Quick Bookmarks.  These can be used to set three frequently used bookmarks that are always visible.

  • To Set a Quick Bookmark: Make sure the person you want to put the bookmark on is highlighted and then right-click inside any of the three boxes.  The name appears in the box.


  • To Jump to a Quick Bookmark -  Click on the desired name in the Quick Bookmark box
  • To clear a Quick Bookmark -  While holding down the Ctrl key, right-click in the box you want to clear.  The name disappears.
