+Clinton Blackmore has started an intersting discussion in the Support Forum that I would LOVE your feedback on.  Here is the link. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/evidentia-software/6fhcRkV2uII

If you have a chance, watch the video - would an approach like that work for you?  Is it intuitive?

Thanks for the link and the info.

I am just getting started with the software and only know enough about programming to know that I made a good decision to not be one.

I am a good software user (many years of experience and many different types of software) and I appreciate those who have the skill to program and especially those who make it easier.

Keep up the good work!!

Evidentia friend Henry Knoth picked up on the fact that there was a field missing from the digital image templates for Census records.  The field, Civil Division, was missing from the old version as well which is why a missed it.

Version 2.4.1 has addressed this issue - follow the same install procedure that you followed for 2.4.0

Thanks for your patience.

Evidentia 2.4 is here!

With the recent release of the 3rd edition of Elizabeth Shown Mills' Evidence Explained, we knew it was time to review all our templates.  We knew we needed to do this for Evidentia v3, but why not make it available to owners of v2 now?

So thats what we did.

So what is in 2.4?
- Revised templates based on Evidence Explained 3rd ed.
- Removed APA support (inappropriate citation format for genealogists)
- Fixed issue with loading new templates

Note for those upgrading to 2.4.0 from previous versions:
In order to see the new templates, follow this procedure:

1. If you have custom templates you want to save, export them.
2. List Manager->Templates->Reset to Defaults       << this will delete all previous templates!
3. If you exported custom templates, you can now import them

You will need to follow this procedure each time you restore a backup made before you upgraded to 2.4

Users of 2.x can find the free upgrade at http://evidentiasoftware.com/evidentia-upgrade/

Finished the review of all the templates.  Removed a lot of duplicates, corrected a few errors, and added a few new ones.  No I am reviewing the 'placeholders' (that grey text that gives you an example in each input field).  I want to make sure there is a sensible example for every field.  Well, almost every field.
