Terminology

PedPal uses a number of terms (words) that can appear indirectly in pedigrees e.g. as labels for data fields, etc. These are words such as 'Sex', 'Male', etc.

A number of preset choices are available for English-speaking breeders of cats, dogs, etc. Alternatively, select Custom from the dropdown menu then can change each term individually.

NOTE: Other terms, such as 'Pedigree', are directly built into the pedigrees. To change these you should alter the pedigree settings: right-click (Mac: use Control + Click) over the element (box) you want to change, then select the appropriate 'Settings' window from the popup menu.
