In English, there is only one gender, called neutral in the English templates. In languages other than English, you may need to use multiple genders. For example, in English, a pushbutton and a radiobutton.
To create and use genders, follow these basic steps:
Create the gender: When you create a new gender, it is copied from an existing gender of your choice.
Edit the class to use the appropriate gender: After you have created the genders as necessary, you must assign the correct gender to the class.
Edit the text for the events: Edit the text to be gender-appropriate for the events in a class. If the event uses the default template, then all events that use the default template for that gender are also updated.
To create a new gender:
In the Template Editor, open the Template.xml file you want to edit.
In the Gender toolpane, right-click the gender you want to copy to create a new gender.
From the shortcut menu, click Create New Gender.
Enter a name in the Name field for the gender.
To edit the gender for the class:
Scroll the list of Classes as necessary and double-click the Class definition you want to edit.
Click the Gender list and select the appropriate gender.
To edit the text for an event:
In the pane to the right of the Event list, double-click the text element you want to edit.
Edit the element text as appropriate for the gender.
