Re: Ancestors and relative lists for myself and wife

OK, I suspect that somehow the Named List pane has been reduced to zero width on the far right edge. ( Perhaps you have moved from a large monitor screen to a much smaller screen. ) Try repeatedly clicking the Named Lists Pane button on the menu bar and observe the right-hand window edge. Can you se...

Re: Ancestors and relative lists for myself and wife

Are you sure you have the Named List pane open in the right half of the Records Window ? i.e. Use Lists > Named List Pane to open/close the pane. Review the Named List created and check the number of Items listed on the right. That should be less than the number of Individuals shown bottom right on ...

Re: GEDCOM - Sharing Functions on FH Research/Website

Why are you inserting http://www.finnistree.co.uk/index.html in Step 5 Home Page Title ? You won't be uploading the FH created index.html home page so nothing in Step 5 is relevant.

Re: Finding Links to Places

Checkout my full Reply, as you have confirmed what I suspected, and are using the wrong method to correct Place names.
Using the 'best' method does not need to find any Individual records at all, nor need any copy & pasting.

Re: Trying to Evaluate Family Historian But Can't Use Sources Because Eval Version

To avoid any confusion, FH does not read/write every data change to the flat GEDCOM file. FH loads the GEDCOM file into some internal (thus RAM based) data management record structure. All data operations are performed internally within the FH program and thus fast even with VERY large databases. Th...

Re: Æ, Ø and Å

As an example, if extended/accented characters are enabled, put the cursor in any FH text box, and try holding down the capital A key. That should produce a small popup window that allows Æ to be chosen, and a few others. You can customise those popups to include whatever characters you like. If you...

Re: Where within source, symbols and text length

You specifically mention = and / characters, which are definitely no problem at all. All the standard symbols found on a UK/US keyboard should also pose no problem. However, some extended characters such as accented letters may not be fully supported by other genealogy products. GEDCOM offers the ch...

Re: Trying to Evaluate Family Historian But Can't Use Sources Because Eval Version

Let me add that you can do everything that the Add Source From Template Plugin offers without actually using the Plugin, but it does require a little more manual effort . The Plugin is simply an aid to creating the Sources illustrated by Helen, but they can be produced by hand without the Plugin.
