Re: Is there a better way to configure diagrams

I trick I use is "Edit>Find In Diagram" or CTRL-H to jump around. If you know the record Ids you can put them in and then press enter to jump to that bit of the diagram.

Re: 2021 Converted Icons

Just to clarify. Bitmaps as used in FH of any date will take the "transparency" from the top left pixel of the bitmap. Windows BMP files do not natively contain transparency. So any tool which converts BMP files to EMF will include the backgrounds as they are set in the file. So to get rid of the ba...

Re: Batch update to source names

Another different option if you are making a list of sources to change you could simply save the result set as a named list and delete them from the list as you change them over.

Re: Note field questions

The plugin did state it was only available for V5 and V6 so no 1.2 was not compatible.

I have uploaded 1.3, but please make sure you check it's work carefully and make a backup and/or snapshot first.

Re: V7 PDF creation very slow, creating huge files

As Mark says CP do a soft release so a version can be tested by a few people prior to hitting the "check for updates" option and updating the download link on the page.

If all goes well with the soft release I suspect the update will be generally available soon.

Mike, that is NOT a bug, it is working as designed even if it's not ideal and a change for this should be a wish request not a bug report.

Re: Import gedcom with photos from online url

Downloading from https in FH plugins is possible using luacom, but the challenge is generally authorising the session for sites such as Ancestry which need cookies or sessions set to allow the images to be downloaded.

Re: Populating citation fields in a prepared citation

The fhUtils pCite option is read only, so you will need to access the fields directly via the HEAD record and the _PCIT field.

Have a look at the source for the loadPreparedCitation in the fhutils source for ideas.

It would be a useful exercise to try a copy the project locally. How long does the load save cycle take?

Also it might be worth checking if your Anti-virus is disabled (temporally) does that make any difference to the speed

Re: Testing Plugins for V6 and V7

I have checked with CP.

For plugin development purposes only you can install
2 Copies of FH 7
and 1 copy of FH6

What you can not do is sell your V6 licence to someone else once you have purchased an upgrade to 7. This is what the Non transferable part of the licence means.
