Shared events and citations

Under the event window, references shows everyone that shares that event, but under citations it only shows the primary. Since the citation is also being shared also, shouldn’t references under citations show the same persons?

In your example, what is the citation attached to?

If it is the event, the citation’s reference is only to the event. The citation is not shared, the event it is attached to is shared with people.

I guess I’m used to other genealogy programs with shared citations that show everyone and events that the citation is used for.

You can attach a citation directly to multiple people. I do this with obituaries. The obituary may describe several events (birth, death, burial, perhaps other things like military service) in which the deceased or others had a role. But it may also mention relatives who had no role in any of those events. So I attach the citation directly to them.
