Re: Flexible CSV Importer problems

I believe I have resolved the synchronization problems. Try the attached Flexible CSV Importer plugin Version 1.6.3 Date 9 May 2021. It has an extra Settings option to Sync any Custom IDs with REFN of each person ? enabled by default. That not only synchronizes the records but also the facts. So if ...

Re: How to get 2nd marriage to show in report

Yes, the Family Group Sheet only reports on one nuclear family. It is effectively focused on one Family record. Whereas all other relevant reports (Individual Summary, Narrative, Outline, etc, reports) include all spouses and children. BTW: Susan, I advise that you update to the latest FH v7.0.5 fro...

Re: Plugins planned/in progress

Good Idea.

FYI: When Plugin: Add Source From Template (14258) was discussed in 2016 there was interest in a variant that used global templates available to all Projects (rather like Source Templates).

Re: Problems upgrading to 7.05

I agree up to a point. Prior to FH v7, the Licence Key was compiled into the installation executable. That is why you had to save it or ask CP to send it again because they have to be a one-to-one match. Only the free downloads were in the archive, i.e. latest free update and the 30-day-free trial. ...

Yes, the two components can each have their own version number.

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...
