Re: 'Limited Functionality' GEDCOM in V7?

The customisations you mention are stored at PC level so will be used in the Project.

Normally when you first open a Gedcom file in FH7, a pop up window appears explaining about using Projects and recommending that you create one.

Re: "Limited Functionality" GEDCOM in V7?

You also can not use the snapshot options to recover an earlier version in a crisis.

I would always recommend using a Project, your core data is still in gedcom format so there is no real reason to not use a Project set up.

Re: Using a named list to add a fact to each indi in the list

BTW The original plugin does work, as nill is not set and therefore == matches as nil. So although it is incorrect it does work and will not cause any problems.

Try adding iup.SetGlobal("CUSTOMQUITMESSAGE","YES"); After the iuplua require This is needed when you use iuplua in FH7 and you can get all sorts of unexpected results if it's not there.

Re: Using a named list to add a fact to each indi in the list

I wonder if it might be quicker for each settler to "walk down" the tree and build a table of descendants, a simple table with the reference numbers in. Repeat with each settler, this should result in a table with each settler, skipping the branch if someone on it is already in the list. At the end ...

Another option if you are talking about narrative reports might be to use the {blank} option in the sentence for the fact to suppress them.

Re: Selective Undelete

With my programming hat on that would be almost impossible as you can undo anything so there would be the possibility of causing cascade problems.

If you are deleting lots of records why not simply add them to a list and then check it twice before using delete list records to remove them all.
