This mod changes the layout of the Person Profile in several ways,
with the intent of making it easier to read. For example,
It moves some the profiled person's events below the person's Parent and Family data,
Adds headings (e.g. Parents, Family or Families, Media, Event Map) above each block of data, and
Moves 'metadata' (e.g. the personID, date of last change, and links to the Group Sheet and Family Chart) into headings.
It makes numerous additional changes, some of which are controlled by mod options.
See the Wiki article for details.
This mod hides the Child-to-Parent relationship if the relationshop is a list that is defined as a mod option.
The idea is that users don't need to see relationship values such as 'natural' or 'birth'.
