@dave
Didn't the database have auto fill (typing in the beginning of a name and it would finish filling in the name) when adding the name of a hybridizer in the data detals? I used to start typing say Andre Smits and would get the first few letters typed in and the rest would auto fill.

Hope I'm making sense?

Has it been a long time since you added the hybridizer names? Auto-fill doesn't last forever.

I have been filling in that name for several days now, and none of them auto fill.

That's odd. Dave will have to answer that question.

That is actually a feature of your web browser, not ATP. I didn't set it up to auto-fill but if your browser supports it, then it happens automatically.

So, if it's not happening, check your browser settings to see if there's an autofill setting that you might have disabled.

Clearing your browser history can delete the saved auto-fill info. You should be able to change the settings to avoid that. Smiling

I was using FireFox, but when my computer was redone they set up Chrome. I can't find where to check the settings for auto fill. It does work in my google searches, but not here on ATP.
Well, it does work when searching for a plant.
