Re: tree diagram

What I meant by "They are not an option" is that the proxy box and the line connecting to a distant main box are not an option. Yes, you can 'Hide' the Proxy box but if you use Diagram > Hide/Show Boxes > Show Hidden Boxes it still exists. You can change the dotted line to a solid line. You might ev...

Re: Find Duplicate Facts Plugin Question related to Migrate Census (family) plugin

If you run Migrate Census Family to Individual Events first, and then run Give Witnesses Their Own Facts that will give Peter two similar Census Event facts and Find Duplicate Facts should find them.

Re: Tooltip for the fact note field

Your suggestion sounds interesting. Similar to the Prompt feature of templated Metafields.

Regarding, 'irrelevant disregarded autotext' you can delete the labels that are irrelevant and just leave the ones with data.

Re: Name suffix

Welcome to the FHUG.

In Tools > Preferences > Property Box set Show Surnames Between Slashes to Always

Then ensure the Name is shown as Simon /Singer/ III

Otherwise, FH always assumes the last word in the name is the Surname and puts that between the slashes.

Digging around, it seems most customisation files use UTF-16 LE format.

I wonder why Fact Type .fhf files need to be UTF-16 LE format. That looks like a mistake to me.

Re: Possible plugin to help maintain citations to lumped sources?

Likewise, I can't see any feature that allows a plugin to present the user with a rich text editor dialogue. I presume the DEA is being applied to a Prepared Citation. So can the user adjust the Text From Source in the Citation (as well as the Source record) before assigning it to facts? If the user...

Brian, it seems to be compatible with FH v7 but remember that if the Text From Source field contains Rich Text formatting that will be lost when moved to the Where Within Source field and becomes just plain text.

Re: Possible plugin to help maintain citations to lumped sources?

The fundamental challenge with lumped Citations is identifying each 'logical set' of replicated Citations. That relies on all the fields of one 'logical set' of Citations having identical values. BUT if one or more fields in the 'logical set' have been altered/deleted/added then that disrupts the se...

Re: FH7 won't start

If the System Restore Point was created before FH v7 was first installed then System Restore will reset the system to that state and probably won't remove any shortcut icons, but they would refer to a non-existent executable.

That is due to the old FH v6 library modules superseded by the FH v7 auto-installed updated modules. See 19194|plugin question after update to FH 7 for what folders and files to delete (in this case specifically md5 & md5.lua). See also Re: Heads up for plugin authors in V7 that discusses solutions.
