Thank you for the feedback. Your analysis is probably correct.

Yes, I'm concerned this thread has already been hijacked for a side issue. I'm tempted to split it off.

Re: Error with Export Gedcom File plugin

It won't help in this case Mark as the plugin does not get as far as a dialogue, so need to see more than just FH.
Anyway, I don't do Zoom as I have no camera or microphone on my desktop PC.

Re: Error with Export Gedcom File plugin

Oh! That is a bit odd.
Please describe the stage in the process of using the plugin at which that occurs.
Is it when you initially run the plugin, or after clicking to export the GEDCOM, or when?

Re: Error with Export Gedcom File plugin

Unfortunately, that kind of error is difficult to diagnose because it is internal to one of the CP supplied libraries. That type of obscure error message arises quite often from that library module. It looks like it is associated with creating a new Windows sub-folder in the export folder. Please po...

Re: Report similar to Family Dictionary...

The Outline > Descendant Outline or Outline > Ancestor Outline reports might work.

In the Options... Main tab try limiting the number of Generations.
Also set Layout Events and Attributes... to on separate lines.
You can also choose which facts to include.

Re: Creating unique splitting-method source name

The proposed solution would result in an ongoing issue. It would require constant maintenance and would not look all that "presentable" in diagrams and reports. Why an ongoing issue? The automatic expression would add the Record Id to every Source record Title. So just add the Record Id t...

Re: Creating unique splitting-method source name

Sorry, I was mistaken and my suggestion won't work. The {=RecordId()} function returns the Record Id of the Source record, not the person. I thought the Name type of metafield was a pointer to the Individual record, but I was wrong. So there is no method I can think of that will automatically provid...

Re: Creating unique splitting-method source name

I assume you are talking about the Record Title Format: expression and a metafield {KeyPerson} with type Name.

{=RecordId(%SOUR.~NM-KEYPERSON%)} will return the Record Id number.

Re: Change name

Remember that anything entered via AS could have been entered directly in FH although maybe more laboriously.
So once you know where the details exist in FH they can be post-edited after AS has finished.

Re: Maximum number of media, people, or sources?

The amount of each type of record is limited by the maximum Record Id, which is 2,147,483,647.
So your PC will probably reach its memory limits before the max Record Id is exceeded.

Re: Creating unique splitting-method source name

FH allows any records to have the same title/name (except Place records).
e.g. Multiple Individual records can have the same Name, and as discussed here, multiple Source Records can have the same Title. It is the Record Id number that is the unique key which differentiates each record.

Re: Creating unique splitting-method source name

IMO the Source Title should not refer to the Fact it ratifies but to the Source Document. Also, it is rare for a Source Document to ratify only one Fact, so which one do you choose? e.g. Birth Certificate ratifies Birth Event, the person's Name, parent Names, Address and Occupation. Thus if the Sour...
