Re: Problems upgrading to 7.05

But I'm giving you an easier shortcut using the CP FH web site. No need to login.
Visit the CP FH Download Archive page and then it is one click. What could be easier?

Re: Drag media file to source media broken in 7.0.5

Have you closed and re-opened FH after installing v7.0.5? The problem with drag & drop was discussed earlier. FH v7.0.5 is running with Admin privileges immediately after install and does not allow drag & drop by standard users. As has been mentioned elsewhere, always download the FH v7 installation...

Re: Can I update AS v5.2 to v7.2? and about FH7

Yes, the two components can each have their own version number. The current Plugin is v5.0 and the AS application is v7.2.7 It would be annoying if every time AS changed version the Plugin changed version too and you had to download it from the Plugin Store when nothing had changed in the Plugin exc...

Re: 2 Parts - include Custom Source Template footnote in fact definition sentence template

Re: Sources image duplication in 'Family Group Sheet' in FH7

This problem claims to be fixed in FH v7.0.5 released recently.

If two or more Citations have the same field values or images they should only appear once in the Sources section of Reports.

Re: 2 Parts - include Custom Source Template footnote in fact definition sentence template

Yes, that is a more conventional strategy. You can probably improve the wording of the narrative sentences to make them a bit less repetitive. e.g. Only put the explicit Age: 7 in the Emigration event and leave Age blank in the other facts, because being Catholic and Literate does not apply to her j...

Re: 2 Parts - include Custom Source Template footnote in fact definition sentence template

OK, so you intend to reformat the Footnote back to just be a summary. As I started to explain under 3) Sentence Templates earlier, FH does offer just as much, if not more, customisation options to tweak Sentence Templates as it does for Footnotes. There are some examples in the FH Help and FHUG KB. ...

Re: Icons on/off

They look like the RIN may have been imported from MyHeritage.
Select all those Query cells from MH:I50001 onwards and hit the Delete key or use Edit > X Delete command.

You may need to close and re-open FH after that deletion, to remove the empty RIN fields.

Re: Icons on/off

Yes, it has been tested with FH v7. Did you read the instructions? "If both Individual Flags and Automated Record Id are found in a Project, then the Plugin aborts with an error message." So your Project must already have Automated Record Id ( RIN ) fields that have been imported from some other pro...

Both options are available via the FH v7 Citation Window. As Nick says, many users don't bother with those imag...

So in a second CSV import, if the REFN match the Custom ID it uses the same Individual and Family re...

Re: How can a wife be a mother?

It is not really an AS problem. Presumably, you have chosen the wrong woman either as wife or mother at some stage.
In the Focus Window, show the husband/son as the Focus person with the same woman as his wife and mother.
Right-click whichever woman has the wrong relationship and choose Unlink Record.
