The sidebar is an important new feature of Reunion 10. It makes lists of information readily available and it can sometimes take up valuable screen space. One of the first things to learn about it is how to hide and display it as desired.
It’s handy because it automatically appears when it’s required, and not displayed. That makes it tricky, since it doesn’t necessarily stay the way you put it.
It’s tricky too because by default, it changes the size of your Reunion 10 window when you hide or reveal it.
Last name auto-completion in Reunion 10 makes it quick and easy to enter surnames consistently. It’s also common for incorrect names to make their way into the list of last names Reunion 10 uses. You may mistype the name or change a name resulting in a name being in the list, but not in your family file anymore. Either way, you’ll want Reunion to stop suggesting the name.
The tree view in Mac genealogy software Reunion 10 replaces the overview window from previous versions. The purpose remains the same. It’s a graphical way to navigate your family tree. It looks sharp and feels natural!
