Edit the displayed person's database record. LifeLines runs the editor on the person’s record. When you return from the editor, LifeLines asks you to confirm any changes, and then leaves you in the list browse mode.
Change to the person browse mode with the current person.
Mark the current person if he/she is not marked; unmark the person is he/she is. The marked person is shown with an x by his/her name. Marked persons are used by the t and x commands. Only one person may be marked at a time.
Remove the current person from the browse list (not from the database).
Change to the tandem person mode with the current person and the marked person as the two persons. If no person is marked there is no change.
Lists of persons may be named, allowing you to quickly browse back to them by giving a list name in response to the b command from different modes. LifeLines will prompt you for the name. List names are most convenient when short.
Browse to a new person or list of persons. You can identify a person or list of persons by name, internal or user key or by list name.
Add more persons to the current browse list. LifeLines asks you to identify a new person or list of persons by name, key or list name, and they are added to and name-sorted into the current list.
Swap the current person with the marked person in the list.
