Re: Individual Narrative PDF Reports & URLs

Hi Glenn, How are you formatting your URL? Have you defined Source Template metafield with a URL data type? If so then take a look at 20618|Source Template Format Definitions that might explain extra spaces. In fields such as Notes or Text From Source have you used the Add Web Link format option hig...

Re: Unwanted topics and German Alphabet

The OP said he had already looked at them all and decided which one to keep.
So my advice was the same. Make a Project from the one to be kept.
Once the Project has been created and set as default, the 'Recently viewed files' list is not visited again so doesn't need purging.

Re: Unwanted topics and German Alphabet

I am not sure where you are seeing a 'Recently Viewed Files' list. Perhaps you are referring to the File > Gecom File Tasks list? That is intended for opening stand-alone GEDCOM files. In FH it is better to create a Project by importing the GEDCOM file because that offers more features. Use the File...

He agreed that using a Named List was a tactic he often used, so I suspect the latter.
It would not be needed for the former as Mark explained by using Record Id.

Re: Family Historian Licence Problems

Despite that article saying it applies to FH version 7, it does not cover FH V7 at all.

Bill, there is no such thing as the FH V7 Free Trial download.
All FH V7 installs use the same https://www.family-historian.co.uk/install7 download with an appropriate CP account username, password, and licence.

Re: Is there a way to stop/pause the CHANge time being updated.

Mike Loney, nothing quite so sophisticated is needed for Plugins. All that is required is the ability to access the "CHAN" data tag just like every other data tag. i.e. ptrIndi = fhNewItemPtr() ptrIndi:MoveToFirstRecord( "INDI" ) ptrChan = fhGetItemPtr( ptrIndi, "~.CHAN" ) ptrDate = fhGetItemPtr( pt...

I've moved this to the FH General Usage forum as it does not appear to be to do with the Ancestral Sources program.

Re: Exporting Address field In FH to Description Field in FTM

Matthew, the FH Tools > Preferences > File Load/Save File Loading Options you mention only apply to importing into FH from another product such as RM8. So they should have absolutely no impact on exporting via the Export Gedcom File plugin.

I now remember your Weblink and Media desired settings.

Re: Fresh Install

Yes, unlike earlier versions, with FH V7 the same https://www.family-historian.co.uk/install7 installation file is used by everyone.

What you need is your CP installation account username and password.
If you have lost those then contact CP via http://www.calico-pie.com/osticket/open.php

Re: Is there a way to stop/pause the CHANge time being updated.

OK, I admit I was being slightly economical with the truth regarding Plugins and AS :o It would be possible for a Plugin to capture all the Updated CHAN date/times by reading through the GEDCOM file. Then after performing the desired changes, those captured values could be written back into the GEDC...

Re: Is there a way to stop/pause the CHANge time being updated.

Any change to a record, whether by hand or by a command or via Query Result Set or via a Plugin or via AS, will force FH to change the Updated/CHAN date/time. Nothing can be done to stop that. Plugins cannot prevent it from happening.

Consider putting your recent Individual records in a Named LIst.

I suspect Andrew just chose those names as random examples and it is coincidental that they both have an initial that does not expand to a forename.

Andrew, try the attached Individual Name Initials Query.

Currently, it only checks Prim...

Re: Restoring CD/DVD Family Trees

The 'missing' folders you found are the original 'CD/DVD' folders that were copied to your actual CD discs. That is why load.exe opens the web pages in your browser. I suspect they were created in FH V6 before you upgraded to FH V7. The old FH V6 settings were in a folder called Settings in the Proj...

Re: Adding multiple marriages in AS

If you invoke AS by using the Ancestral Sources Data Entry plugin it has an option to Close on 'Save Entry to File' which if not ticked will allow multiple entries from AS.

I cannot remember what the AS default is after Save Entry to File.
