FTM does a fair job with what it calls "Genealogy Reports", ie narrative register-style reports. There is one minor/major difference. And that is page-by-page footnoteswith the use of latin terms like "ibid" and etc.
I realize this would be a real nightmare to write software for and would require a ton of computer resources (and therefore additional time to run a report), especially when you get into a report with hundreds or thousands of individuals. But, it still would be really, really great to have.
Do you suppose FTM will ever get to page-by-page footnotes instead of / option to presenting them all at the end of the report??
How do the book and magazine publishers do it?? They must have software that places the footnotes page-by-page. Do they have people who sit in front of a computer re-entering genealogical data into a word processing program of some type that does page-by-page footnotes??
(BTW, I seem to recall that FTM used to have an option to run sources "in-line", right with the footnote number inside the register report (called Genealogy Report in FTM), but has apparently dropped that option. That is fine by me, as the only time I ever used that option was to print a "working copy" of a register report to take to the library.)
