I know I have read somewhere that I can change the order of Occupations so that the later one will show on the main tab but I cannot find that article again. Help poease.

WishList Item #11 is to mark preferred occupation. FHUG users have noted their workarounds.

Another technique to achieve a similar effect is to customise the Main tab, or add a custom tab to display particular Facts.

For example you can add the last Occupation details using INDI.OCCU[last] and INDI.OCCU[last].DATE and INDI.OCCU[last].PLAC.
Similarly, add the penultimate Occupation details using INDI.OCCU[last-1] and INDI.OCCU[last-1].DATE and INDI.OCCU[last-1].PLAC.
