Re: Create Individual Shortcut

The only options I have details for are the ones used by the plugin. They were added for a 3rd Party Project I was working on for a Chart Printing company to fully automate the use of Family Historian to Create PDF charts and send them back to the submitting user for approval via a web site.

Re: Create Individual Shortcut

Hyperlinks only work with Web servers so would not work for this. Any linking would, as now, rely on other programs allowing command files to be attached.

Re: I have duplicates that I'm having trouble merging

I suspect when you did the Merge you did not check and Merge the Family Records as your people have the same Reference number.

Re: Showing adoptive parents

You don't need to link and unlink. Go to the All tab for the Adopted person and select the top "Family as Child" and move it down using the curved arrows.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Not looked at that yet, you can't add Facts to places, there are a few ways off the top of my head, as there is nothing to stop you putting private notes against places or adding another Labelled text to the notes against the DNA Marker.

Re: Birth dates and error message

To detail the Source of your information you should create a Source for your Birth Certificate and then attach that to the event as a source citation. If you are just getting started it will seem a lot of extra work, but believe me when I say it's much easier to start off that way than to try and go...

Does your PC have an H drive and does that folder exist?
If so you may need to check the permissions on the folder in Windows Explorer

Re: PDF File output is not enabled

Just to add to Mike's notes that I am pretty sure you need V6 of Nova when using V4 of Family Historian, I'll update the Knowledge base to state the 7.7 Nova only works for V6 of FH which is shown on the FAQ on the Family Historian site.

Re: Problems with narrative reports

Prior to V6 you could not use extended characters, so what people used to do was add a media image with the name in non ascii script, would that work for you in the meantime?

Re: Find My Past appears to have the new GRO Index

> Is is consistent

Not sure, I just noticed this week that most of the entries I was working on had the information. I have just managed to find 4 more children for one couple all of which were born and died between census and all fit neatly into the gaps in the existing children.

Find My Past appears to have the new GRO Index

I have just been working on a new family and discovered that FMP appear to be using the new GRO index with the mothers surname.

This means you can search the whole index for a Surname and Mothers name combination, rather than in 5 year chunks and once for each gender.

Re: Birth = fBirth or BLANKS

I presume this relates to 16729|(sort of) structure of LUA Program In which you have fBirth = BLANKS As far as I am aware you have not defined BLANKS anywhere so BLANKS will be nil so when you set fBirth to it the value will be nil. Edit: You can test a field for nil using Local BLANKS if BL...

Re: Property boxes?

They are optional tabs for the property box which can be downloaded from
Knowledge Base > Downloads and Links ~ Property Box

They simply add additional tabs to the Property box so you can have a tab with regularly used facts on them.

If you have V6 as an upgrade you need to keep your V5-V6 upgrade CD and the licence sheets for both V5 and V6, you do not need any earlier CDs or licences.

Re: Property Box is Frozen

When you click on the three dots in the centre of the separator bar and drag it left does the right hand side of the property box stay still?

If you click the dock property box icon and dock the box does the source pane stay on the right?

Re: Change layout of family tree to fit a book

Have you tried:
In diagram options turning it to left right format
Cutting the box sizes down and minimising the text in the boxes
If doing All Relatives try using flat format
Using the book option to get book sized pages?
