What about 'Resident' of Grimsby, as that is what they were (while they were alive).

Re: What to call a person who is not a progenitor

I agree that 'Strays' sounds a bit derogatory, and does not really match your latest description.
'Others' is a good catch-all that has no unflattering meaning, or alternatively just 'Persons' or 'People'.

Re: Umlauts and accents

Use the Status value to prevent Narrative Reports suggesting they were married. If you choose Unmarried Couple or Never Married...

Re: Obvious problem not staring me in the face

Where do I begin? Firstly, most text items referenced by ptrItem cannot have a Source Citation subsidiary tag ( ~.SOUR ). The only such text items would be Note fields. So I suspect you need to move the ptrItem to its parent field that is more likely to allow ~.SOUR . If it is a Fact Note do you wan...

Re: I read the scant help and it is not null

Don't paste into Wordpad as that makes it even bigger.
Follow the Knowledge Base > Posting Topics guide and use the Snipping Tool to create a file.
If still too big then create a compressed ZIP file and attach that.

Usually when debugging we have been talking about tables.
But yes, it would be useful to copy & paste the variables pane.
However, that is not possible, so you will have to take a screenshot.

Re: delete a file for rebuild

I really have no idea what you are trying to do, or what problem your are trying to solve and need help with. Instead of saving pointers you can retain effectively the same relationship by saving Record Id. So instead of saving a pointer to a Family record, save the Family Record Id. Similarly for a...

Why do you need to copy those variables?

It would help if you explained what save and load mechanisms you are talking about. I presume you mean table.save(...) and table.load(...) ? In that case table.save(...) will always overwrite the previously saved file when you rebuild the data. Anyway, you must know the full file path used by those ...

I don't understand what you mean by "the select indi records screen" ?

Re: Issue with view media files in the Focus Window

File that are only in the cloud are not actually on your machine.
They are only called down when required to be displayed.
In OneDrive there is an option to keep all copies of cloud files on your machine.
Is there a similar option in iCloud?
