Person number one in my .PAF file

Person number one in my .PAF file

My .PAF file always opens on the SAME person.
That is fine, however I want it to always open on a different person.
How to arrange that, is what I want to know.
The .PAF always opens on the person listed at the top of my list of persons.
I want it to always open on the second person on this list.
I have no idea how it came to chose the person it chooses.
At one time it chose the person that I still want.

On the menu bar click on "Tools".
Select "Preferences" at the bottom.
Click on the tab marked "File".
Make your choice in the first box.

All of this is explained in the Help file under "Home Person".

Hi Dave,
That was so easy, and it has bugged me so long.
Thanks a lot.
I had been encouraged to ask about it here since I had finally managed to clear up another longstanding annoyance in my PAF system.
Within my master .PAF file was a very large independant network of interconnected records, like a ghost. Almost half the .PAF file.
I got rid of it by exporting to a new .PAF file, after selecting only one person and everyone related to him.
Poof went the ghost and an assorted bunch of single entries.
Thanks again Dave.
Hugh
