Breeders Assistant offers great flexibility in how animal titles may be entered and displayed. BA supports both 'before' titles and 'after' titles, with independent color highlighting of both.
BA uses the term 'primary title' for the title, if any, that appears in front of the animal's name. A typical such title is 'Champion'. When you select an individual's primary title:
You can enter both a long and short form of the title, e.g. 'Champion' and 'CH'. This is useful because many documents in BA - such as pedigrees - let you choose whether to use long or short form titles in various places. E.g. you could choose to use the long form for the subject animal and the first 2 generations of ancestors but use short titles for all other ancestors - because of the limited space available.
You can choose the highlight style. This controls the appearance of the titled name in pedigrees. The normal style used is to output in Red. You can have many different highlight styles if you want - e.g. to use different colors for different titles. You can also redefine standard styles e.g. if you don't have a color printer you might want to use bold rather than red.
E.g. you have an animal called 'Arripay George'. Without any primary title his name would normally appear in a pedigree as simply:
Adding the primary title as 'Champion', with short form 'CH' and default highlighting, he would now normally appear in a pedigree as:
Champion Arripay George
CH Arripay George
- depending on whether the context in which the name appears is set to use the long or short form.
You can assign any number of after titles to an individual. These have their own highlight style that is controlled separate to the primary title. Thus you could choose a non-highlighted style, e.g.:
CH Arripay George CDX
or you could use a specific color, e.g:
CH Arripay George CDX
You can control whether or not after titles appear in pedigrees on a layout-by-layout basis. Likewise you can customize this separately for each generation of ancestors.
