Is it possible to change the default text layout in person node (family-tree)

0 votes
I am importing GEDCOM data.  On the family tree chart, the person name appears on two lines: Forename on line 1, Family name on line 2.  Is it possible to change this so that the name appears on a single line? I mean as the file is imported - I realise I can edit each node afterwards.  Also, is it possible to add more data to the person node from the GEDCOM file, for example place of birth?

No, currently it is not possible to configure GEDCOM import to have given name and family name on one line.

Yes, it is possible to import all textual data from a GEDCOM file. Said data is converted to custom properties for the GEDCOM nodes. BIRT and DEAT tags are added as node labels as well.

Thanks for the very quick response.
I will look at how to use custom properties!
