Re: Ancestral Sources Version 5.3.0

It seems that V5.3 was never fully released, which explains why V5.2 says it is the latest.
Just install V5.3 over the existing installation.

Re: Problems with Linux installation

I would not assume or hope for anything.
Post a support ticket with references to appropriate Forum threads and see what CP say.
If they are in the process of making improvements they might tell you.

Re: Are there Keyboard shortcuts to emulate mouse clicks

One option that works throughout Windows is the Ease of Access Mouse Keys. Click Start > Settings > Ease of Access > Mouse or Windows key + I and type Mouse Keys You then use keypad buttons to act as mouse movements. In many dialogues, you can repeatedly use the Tab key to change focus through boxes...

The answer is similar to that for your earlier posting 10766|FORMAT DIAGRAMS & SAVE . You need to add a Record Flag called say Dead End to those Individuals . Then in the Diagram > Options > Boxes tab use << Add Condition > Record Flag for that Dead End flag. Choose the Box Feature of Box Line and s...

Re: Apps for Android

I've quickly reviewed the GedExplorer help, but it is not explicit enough to come to any firm conclusions. Who knows what unimportant information it does not support. It does not even show detailed screenshots, only BMD years. I suspect it may not support Media at all if you copy the internal FH GED...

Re: Apps for Android

According to fhugdownloads:contents:utility_gedexplorer|> Utility ~ GedExplorer and reading between the lines of the previous postings, it opens the internal Project GEDCOM file even if encoded in the default UTF-16 Unicode format. Although it is not clear whether it supports extensions such as Fact...

Re: reordering the Pool

Altering the INDI position withing the GEDCOM file is potentially dangerous unless it was automated with say a Plugin.
Contrary to what Jane said, the INDI records do NOT go back into number order when saved, even if the data is edited.

Re: reordering the Pool

As advised in Knowledge Base > Work With Record Identifiers if you renumber Individual Record Id then it is highly likely that any saved Family Historian Charts will be rendered useless because they are linked to records by Record Id.

    title  = 'System Values',
    size   = '164xHALF',

Re: Children out of sequence in focus window

The Re-order Out-of-Sequence Data command is multi-purpose with various options to cater for various user needs. It does not know that you have spotted some Children are out of order. Also, there may be others you have not spotted. So, first of all, it asks which Items to Check ~ Spouses, Children, ...

Even a backup from FH V6 will probably not restore all the data into FH V5 or any earlier version. As we ...

My gut feeling is that it is an installation problem of some sort.

It may even be...

No, as you say, all the Other pictures are grouped together.
