"It would be nice if you could order children yourself and the ordering would stay regardless. Transfer between FTM and A.com should never reorder anything, children, facts, marriages, etc. Many times a documents will imply order of events or a picture will name children (and you can infer birth order) but never give actual dates, if you order them by hand you should expect that order to stay put"
Yes, Yes, Yes and yes
This is the solution
The Program should not be changing the order of children that the user puts them in --- regardless if the user is corect or not correct or has their own methodology/reason for their chosen sequence
I don't believe the so-called new algorithm for 2014 will be able to put the children back in order, especially for those children with no dates [and I assume users will not just be making up dates to provide a "pretty" sequence]
I believe the program will not be able to put them in order cause there is nothing to sort on
My guess there is going to be a fair amount of disappointment on the new release in this area -------cause in my case I literally have thousands of children without birthdates
