Re: Export Gedcom File plugin options

I am about to publish an update to the Export Gedcom File plugin anyway, so thought I'd ask just in case. Have you any general thoughts on unconditionally exporting RP-REPOSITORY metafields as both a labelled Note with the name of the Repository AND a generic Repository link. That does not involve a...

Re: V7 Import from TMG has error in Birth Fact sentence

After ticking Show Hidden you can use the Fact Set: and Filter: options at the top to refine the list. As a general rule, when FH imports from other products such as TMG, it does not 'invent' new data structures.

Helen, I have looked at this a bit more closely. For most metafields, the labelled Note uses the metafield name and value such as: Author: Mike Tate Date: 2021 I was thinking that since you won't be exporting Repository records then the export of an RP-REPOSITORY metafield could be governed by the l...

FYI: There is no need to post Tools > Fact Types for different Projects, because they are the same for all Projects, apart from the new Project-specific Fact Types that I doubt you have used. Notice that most of the Fact Types are in the TMG Fact Set that has eclipsed the Standard Fact Set. That is ...

Re: Exporting to Ancestry tree

The question is why?
With that GEDCOM open in FH can you check the All tab for Jessie.
Are the facts in a natural date order with Birth first and Death last?
If you fully expand the details by double-clicking her name twice, is there anything unusual such as UDF?

I have to admit to being mystified as to where Jessie's facts have gone. I can see that her husband Raymond's facts have transferred to Ancestry as his life dates (1915-1981) are shown. Also, the close relatives BMD details are shown. Please open the GEDCOM file that you uploaded to Ancestry using F...

In your 1st bullet, the Plugin would create the Bibliography Formats so no manual revamping required....

I think I have found the problem and it will be fixed in the next version of the plugin. Sorry about that. It is caused by a Media record Title that contains a per cent character ( % ) somewhere.

Re: V7 Import from TMG has error in Birth Fact sentence

You need to sort the Result Set by the Sentence column otherwise the templates may be way down the list.
Hold down the Alt key while you click the Sentence column header to sort the templates to the top.

If there are no Fact specific Sentence Templates then the problem must be elsewhere.

The one thing that has not changed is FH V6.2.7! What has changed is the Media images and therefore the internal data tags may be different.
