Re: How Related Display Graphically - how to change lineage trace colour

When you have the diagram displayed, select "Family Connection Mapper" from the Diagram menu, then select the Format option to change the colour. This tool can also add more connections to a single diagram.

Re: Child's sole link to father.

Who is the diagram Rooted on? The most likely explanation is that the Wife is not related to the Root of the diagram so her children from a previous relationship will not show. You could simply add an extra diagram for the Wife using Diagram>Insert Into Diagram>diagram and selecting a Ancestor desce...

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.

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: 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.
