This page offers advice on using the Plugin under various circumstances.
When upgrading from an old PC to a new PC follow the steps below:
Diagram Background Picture
files, or any Box Icon
stored within the Family Historian Program Data Folder Icons
sub-folder may not transfer successfully from PC to PC. This is because the full path for such files is stored in the Family Historian data. If an identical path does not exist on both PC then the Background Picture
or Box Icon
will vanish from the associated Diagram
on the destination PC. The image files and the ImageList.txt
file saved in the Plugin Backup folder allow the settings to be reselected one by one.
Folder and file names must be represented in the ANSI character set. This is unlikely to be a problem, because most programs, including Family Historian, will not handle non-ANSI names correctly. This limitation is in the LUA Filing System library.
