Re: FH6 - To-do lists

You can only have two items on a Row, but if you return to the Tab list you can add as may rows of "items" as you want.

Re: Is it possible to date a note?

Personally what I have are facts for miscellaneous items, one for the Family and one for Individual. I date them with a relevant date, but don't show the date in narrative reports, just the Note field. I like this solution as it means that you can include snippets of information in a narrative repor...

Re: FH6 - To-do lists

To get them on the Add Fact button, go back to Fact Types, Edit your new Fact type and tick the "Fast Add Menu" option.

It's also possible to set up a Tab for your To Do notes in Property Box Customisation.

Very strange, have you tried picking the characters from the character map. I don't have Windows 7 available any more to check it on.

Re: Hyphenated Surnames

Yes you can add any characters, by editing using "Configure Language and Accent Characters" under the gear wheel on the Property box.

Re: ALL relatives and associated people

Don't forget you can hide boxes on the extra trees, add lines to join them in and turn off the duplicate curved lines. Then save as a chart so you can come back to it later.

Have you tried centring the diagram on your wife's parents as a couple does that help?

Re: Hyphenated Surnames

I don't think there is a switch for this, but I can think of a couple of work arounds. 1. Modify the text scheme to put the Given names on the first line and the surname on the second line as Lorna has already suggested. 2. Replace the hyphen with a tide ~, or an ─ (Alt number key pad 196) neither o...

Re: Facts not resourced

I assume by "Resourced" you mean "Sourced", there are lots of Queries in the downloads which show facts with the sources attached to them. Personally I use sources such as "Verbal - Jane Taubman" to show information taken from others. These all have a type of Verbal. Wh...

Re: What is this yellow box with "Not" in it?

As you have a source displayed the Source Pane is blank, it would normally say "Not Applicable" but as you have selected a non proportional font for the Property box it looks like it's got truncated by windows.

Re: Twin Icon for Diagrams

It's very useful on Diagrams to spot twins, when my sister was pregnant with twins, she said they don't run in the family do they, I was "happy" to tell her, that one of our G-Grandmother's had 3 sets of twins along with 10 other children. It can also be useful to mark those you know are t...

Re: Recording adoption by new marriage

The diagram is as I would expect for way you have configured the relationships and as you are not showing Spouse boxes. It would make more sense if you had a more detailed text scheme selected so it shows the Spouse for each of the boxes. For the relationship make sure you select More Options and th...

The trick to add anything is to use the OTHER option right at the bottom of the list and then you can add any data reference you want.

Re: age on marriage cert recorded as "full"

Gedcom does not allow a "string" in the Age field. All I do is to add a Note stating for example "Both shown as full age", or "James shown as of full age"
