Re: Edit text in charts

Contrary to what David says, FH V7 does support the INDI.NAME.TYPE field on the All tab. However, until we know how your explanation of the origin of a Name imports into FH it is difficult to give a precise solution. We need a screenshot similar to David's for one of your All tabs with the Name fiel...

Re: Edit text in charts

An example of text editing is that my TMG import has custom name tags showing names as they were in a native country. In FH these names are lumped together under a.k.a. without the explanation of the origin. Using "a.k.a." basically removes the intention of the alternate name usage such as native n...

Welcome to the FHUG. The challenge you face is something that users often encounter as they discover the need for organised Source Citations. You have sensibly identified the two techniques of starting from scratch versus updating your current Project. I believe that most users opt for the second te...

Peter, it sounds like that is where you went wrong. Originally, I believe you had Individual in file selected. Therefore, to add a Name: you must << Select an Individual record from the list in the righthand pane one at a time and click Add for each one to compile a list of Associated Individuals in...

As Lorna requests, please explain the type of text edit you need to perform. There is no general text editor that allows arbitrary changes to the contents of an Individual box. All text changes must be controlled via the Diagram > Options > Text Scheme . Lorna has suggested using a Record Flag but i...

Re: A strange curved grey line in my diagram

I have just discovered another way to hide those coloured ribbons.
Right-click on a box with a coloured ribbon and chose Format..., then tick Prevent Linking as Duplicate.
That allows each coloured ribbon to be hidden or revealed selectively box by box.

Thank you, Mike, again, for the clarification. I had tried double-clicking the appropriate Fact type but there was nothing.

Well, it depends on what data relationships you enter! You entered your birth father as Unknown and on his tab included yourself on his Children: list. However, on your 'surrogate' father's tab you are NOT included on his Children: list. Those relationships are shown as you desire. However, your ste...

Re: Importing and TITLE

Hi Glenn,
That imported Divorce event is perfectly OK and is standard GEDCOM.

The FH Status: Divorced is only for when you know they are Divorced but have no Divorce event Date or Place details.
It is a non-standard GEDCOM extension invented by FH so will not be supported by any other products.

Re: Step Son showing in Descendants

By default, FH does not differentiate between blood relatives and step, foster, or adoptive relationships. Anyway, unless you have definitive DNA/blood proof, you cannot be 100% sure that blood relatives really are such. The parent Rel ationship details can identify the relationship to each parent, ...

Yes, if you are always the researcher then it is hardly worth preserving.
In FH it could be recorded in a Source Citation Note, or by using the new Source Templates, metafields could be defined to hold that sort of information.

Re: Relationship expression for a query

Yes, it is a bit tricky. Function parameters such as that are typically dependent on context. In this case, the Query type is Individual, so any blank parameter that refers to an Individual record will default to %INDI%. However, as you found in the Sentence Template context that does not work. Simi...

This is related to your recent posting 20881|Relationship expression .

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 ...
