Re: Source and Citation Text to Source Rich Text & Tables

I thought it relevant as PP is converting from V6 Generic Sources to V7 Templated Sources, has problems using Jane's plugin, is " spending an awful lot of time reformatting and trying to represent my current data in a better format " and requests pointers. However, I accept that the process may have...

Re: List of Parishs

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. What are the comma-separated parts in your Place names? e.g. town, parish, county, country where Parish is in the 2nd comma-separated part. Use Tools > Work w...

Re: customize property box with named lists

Bev, perhaps an explanation is necessary of why it is not currently possible. Each field in a Property Box custom tab is currently restricted to a Data Reference that is local to the current record. That is fine for Record Flags that are a sub-field of an Individual Record, i.e. %INDI._FLGS.__...% H...

Re: auto text automation?

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.

Don't keep the secret to yourself!

Since you mention Narrative Reports specifically, in Tools > Fact Types... select the fact to inhibit, then Edit... its definition to change the Sentence Template to code {blank} which blanks the narrative sentence.

Re: Perhaps an Event with 2 date fields (plotting immigration)

Actually, they both use essentially the same mechanism for dates, with 1 Jan 1901 as the base date, but LibreOffice allows earlier dates to have a negative integer days value, and also caters for the Gregorian date change missing 11 days.

Sorry Trent, but you are not following our instructions carefully enough. Do NOT use the All Events query because Residence is an Attribute fact (not an Event) so won't be listed. Also, none of the other Attribute facts will be listed. Try the standard All Facts query to list every type of fact or t...
