Re: Indirect relationship

Try the =Relationship(...) function or =RelationCode(...) function but I'm not sure how they can be used to identify direct versus indirect relationships.

Re: Relationship expression

Unfortunately the %INDI% data reference does not work in the Sentence Template context and %CUR_PRIN% must be used. Also, the function needs to be enclosed in { curly brackets } . i.e. {=Relationship( Record(9999,"I"), %CUR_PRIN%, TEXT, 1 )} The full Sentence Template would then be: {%CUR_PRIN%} is ...

Re: Simple Citations Templates for Family Historian 7

IMO, you should consider two forms of Simple Citation Template for FH. The current template is very much a Simple Citations Lumper Template because so many details are in the Citation. In FH if there are multiple identical Citations derived from one Source there will be multiple copies of a lot of d...

Re: Help with an expression

OK, what confused me was you said that it "worked to get an icon for anyone that had a note".
So at some stage, you must have entered a valid expression and I thought that was the one with a missing comma.

Re: Help with an expression

I'd be interested to know how you managed to omit that comma.
If I do that and then click OK FH automatically inserts a comma.
I've tried all sorts of edits and either FH corrects the typo or says 'Expression not valid'.

Jim, it really helps us if you can provide the expression that does not work for you, otherwise we are working in the dark. You know what you used but we don't! Your original posting says you used the Expression =ContainsText( %INDI.BURI.NOTE%, "GPS", STD ) That is perfect except that the data refer...

Klaus, the parish names probably appear in your Place records. So to find those parish names we need to know your Place record naming format.

Sorry, despite its name, there is no 'automation' available within Autotext. It only automates the insertion of plain text.
To perform any 'automation' such as inserting a Date will require a Plugin to be written.
