Hi Jim,

To prevent making typing-errors etc. for locations that allready exist in your
file I have set in Preferences on the Names-tab to "confirm new places" (and
"confirm new individuals" too). When GB asks to add a new location I hit
cancel when I'm almost certain the place is in my list and if it isn't I
dblclck on the new location to "slot" it in place correctly.

Also, for locations I have to enter very often, I have set a few "fake"
namevariants as a 'shortcut'. There is an option to "Replace with Standard on
Input" on the Names-window so when I type in "xb", Genbox replaces that with
the correct place: "Bredevoort, Aalten, , Gelderland".

[Followup to my last post. What is happening is when I type "Haywood County
[Hospital, Clyde, Haywood County, North Carolina", Haywood County Hospital is
[being placed in the Local Site as expected. But when I typed in "Haywood
[County Hospital, Waynesville, Haywood County, North Carolina", it apparently
[linked the Local site to only one Location. Deleting the event and
[re-entering it fixes it but I suspect it is not supposed to work this way.
