Re: Privacy brackets in places

No, that is NOT possible. [[ privacy ]] brackets are only supported in long text fields that allow multiple lines of text such as Notes , Text From Source , and Address , but even then the support is not comprehensive. Place fields only allow one line of text, so are not included. For shorter Place ...

Re: Discontinuing support for IE

Yes, every browser has an option to make it your default browser. Just look in the settings/options.
OR
Windows lets you set the default browser via Start > Settings > Apps > Default Apps > Web browser

Re: Download images from Ancestry & MyHeritage

Welcome to the FHUG. If you download GEDCOM directly from Ancestry or MyHeritage then (as with most online family trees) the Media are not downloaded as linked images, but you only get URL, and each Media image must be downloaded by hand. HOWEVER, in both cases, there is a workaround... Ancestry GED...

Re: Upgrade to Version 7 ~ Preserving settings

No, just backing up Projects as normal is no different than before and does NOT backup custom settings.

Re: Upgrade to Version 7 ~ Preserving settings

FH Project Backups do NOT preserve global custom settings and preferences. They aren't stored in the Project folder, but in C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\ folder and Windows Registry and elsewhere. Since you have several custom settings and others you may have forgotten about (Queries, ...

Re: Book Image ~ Where linked?

As I just said, a Marriage Certificate should NOT be directly linked to Individual or Family records.
They should be linked to one Source record and that have Citations from the Marriage event, father's Occupation attributes, Residence facts, and Witnesses, etc.

It is NOT actually linked directly to any Individual or Family records. If it were then the Data Ref Where Used would be INDI.OBJE or FAM.OBJE with the records listed to the left. It is linked to the Media tab ( SOUR.OBJE ) of two different Source records with Rec Id [ 175 ] and [ 197 ]. You have cu...

Welcome to the FHUG Stevie.

Presumably, you did not enter those quotes from your keyboard?
So where did you copy them from?

Is that screenshot of a Notes box or a Report screen?

Re: possible new item for wish list

Please refer to the program Family Historian (FH) and not to the developers Calico Pie (CP). Yes, I think I understand what you want, but cannot imagine any circumstances where I'd want that to happen to every sentence for one person's narrative everywhere it appears in any type of Narrative report.

You need to perform a little software forensic diagnosis to determine where that media is used. If you can easily identify the Media image then in the Records Window open the Media tab and select that record. Then run the Where Used Record Links plugin that should identify exactly everywhere it is u...

Re: possible new item for wish list

First, a little clarification. The two check boxes for Living and Private flags you have customised onto the Main tab. Those check boxes are not standard, and only apply to Record flags. I don't understand how the Facts tab check boxes for <para> and <br> would work. Are you saying that if none of t...

Re: converting existing generic Source records to templated Source records

But do heed the advice about using Source Templates if you intend to import or export GEDCOM files much.
There are ways of encouraging consistent formats without using Source Templates by using AutoText instead for example.

After a quick experiment, it looks as if active web links do NOT appear in Query Results.
You would have to add some simple text to get anything to appear in a Query.

You are still not comparing like for like. FH uses the standard Windows compression not 7zip.
