FTM 2012 - Custom Report Title keeps changing!

FTM 2012 - Custom Report Title keeps changing!

I just finished creating a custom report for addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for 328 family members.

As I was working on it, every time I would switch from one family member to the next, to edit their information, the REPORT TITLE would switch from ADDRESS REPORT to Custom Report for JUNG, Yvette (or whoever I was working on).

After repeatedly re-entering ADDRESS REPORT, I just gave up and changed it at the end when I was done. Is there some "magic" that will allow me to set the Custom Report Title just once?

If you switch the focus person on the report, FTM will change the title back to default. I suppose that's by design but I agree it can be irritating at times. Best solution is as you noted, ignore it until you're done & ready to print.

Thanks, Sean, for the quick reply.

Having recently upgraded from FTM 16 to FTM 2012, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything!

There sure are a lot of little new quirks I am going to have to learn.

I will admit, however, although time-consuming to initially set up the Address Report (custom report), printed out, it is easier to read and easier to cross-check!
