I cannot get the maiden names to show in parentheses. The married name is showing in parentheses. I tried uploading a new file but that did not work. How do I fix this?

Since the Class Creator systems were designed to focus on Schools and classmates from our school days, the format chosen was First Name, Last-Name-in-school, and if married now, married name in parentheses. Compared with some other formats, that may seem backward, but it was the format used in the system design.

Right now, there is not an option to avoid any parentheses unless you choose to enter them when you enter the names. You can, however, enter a nickname in quotes with the first name such as Robert "Bob".

The method selected by CC at its outset makes perfect sense to me as it is by their maiden names I knew all the girls in my class. Even now, 62 years after having graduated, it's how I often think of them.
