Re: Witnesses in Diagrams

Although not ideal you could use the sentence function to get back the sentence for the probate and include that in the diagram.

If you create a custom fact set fact for probate you can add the new lines into the sentence.

Yes, of course.

Simply select Add>Unrelated Individual from the menu to add the first of each family. It can also be useful to make a named list with the root of each group for quick access.

Re: date point(s)

You are reading the wrong field.

Code: Select all

ptrDAT = fhGetItemPtr(iptr,'~.BIRT.DATE')
fBirth = fhGetValueAsDate(ptrDAT)
BUT note that will give you a Date object and not a date point, to get a date point you will need to extract it from the Date object.

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

I doubt Witnessed events will appear in the Records Window or All tab, as that has always represented the Data as stored. Personally I am using Witnesses extensively, as they are easily the most flexible way to store a variety of links between people and the Property box makes it easy to see the wit...

Re: Showing life dates of person in custom report header

You can't put functions other than those listed in the page header.

If you are using anything other than single Individual reports, remember the Page title will be the same for all pages of the report like Ancestors by generation regardless of which Ancestor it is currently reporting.

Re: Creating a book

Re: Project failed to open

Assuming "Fosters" is your Project name.
On the Project Window click on it once and then click the More Tasks button, there should be an option for Manage Snapshots there if you are using an up-to-date version of FH6.

Take the option and report what you can see there.

Re: Wills, Executors and Beneficiaries

With version 6, Executors and Beneficiaries should be entered as Witnesses, unless you have strong reasons not to.

This can be done using the Witness link on the Facts tab so you don't need to use a Property box tab which was done prior to Witnesses being available.

It should also apply to Family records too according to the spec but better than nothing I suppose.
It does and you can set it in the all tab. You could write yourself a plugin to set them from the Living and or Private flag easily enough.

Re: Pictures in Reports

The pictures are selected by Priority which can be set on the Media tab for Record level pictures.
You can also omit pictures from reports, by ticking the exclude from reports on the media link.

You can't currently keep fact level pictures with the facts to which they apply.
