Re: Chart display problem

It is not entirely clear that he ever investigated the Boxes tab as he does not mention it anywhere. The Remember Options tick box is on every tab so no need to visit the Boxes tab. Also if it really was a Saved Chart then it would save the single box Format anyway. Something appears to have upset t...

Re: a few age related questions

I'm sorry to dispel your joy but it still does not work correctly for all types of Dates. It correctly handles any Birth Range Dates such as btw 1918 and 1922 as it always did. However, it doesn't handle Death Range Dates such as btw 2018 and 2022 and only detects the first date. So with those two D...

Re: Chart display problem

I imagine by changing box format you right-clicked the box and chose the Format option. However, the root (sic) problem is that the Box Features for the Root box type have been upset. Using Restore Defaults does not affect the Boxes tab condition settings and anyway only works tab by tab. The neares...

Re: Export Gedcom File plugin new features

I have revised the plugin dialogues, mostly on the Basic Options tab, in response to recent comments. It is difficult to change the drop-list architecture because the legacy users 'sticky' settings are saved in that form. However, the wording tries to follow FH more closely where possible or is more...

Re: Ancestry (UK) GEDCOM import date format problem

FH is usually quite good at interpreting various Date formats, but you are correct that it misunderstands those hyphens. The same way that removing them from the dd-mmm-yyyy format works, removing them from Qn-yyyy format will work. abt is a standard qualifier but FH has a Tools > Preferences > Gene...

Re: Hourglass Diagram

Yes, if you want each box for the same ancestral member to align with its partner for the other spouse, then Fixed Point is the answer. Then, for example, the paternal grandfather on each side will align on the same level, and so on for each ancestor. I thought that all you required was to align to ...

Re: Hourglass Diagram

The simplest move is to adjust the bar closest to each root spouse. Move one up and the other down. However, that will misalign their parents. So try the bars associated with their parents and then work back through the ancestral bars moving each a little. If necessary post a screenshot with the Box...

Re: Change one specific instance of a sentence in a narrative report

Lorna, FH only uses the 'had a relationship' wording when there are no Family facts.
As soon as a fact is added it uses the Family fact Sentence Template. Try it and you will see.

Yes, use Exclude Unless =ContainsText(%INDI%, ["Place"], EXT) is true i.e. Use the same format as is used in your other Row filter which is probably like: Exclude Unless %INDI.NAME[1]:SURNAME% Contains ["Name"] That ["prompt"] format can be used in many scenarios but may need a Type-Specifier Functi...

Re: Importing from TMG death of a baby

Try the attached Update Age of Infant Deaths plugin Version 0.2 Date 24 Nov 2021 that should handle those infant cases.

As I said before, keep the Plugin, so that in future after entering the Birth and Death dates for an infant, you can run it to calculate and set the Death Age in months and days.

Re: Importing from TMG death of a baby

I'm glad that worked out Ok.

If you have too many of the Death 'as an infant' in the memo cases to correct by hand then the Plugin could be adjusted to detect the 'as an infant' memo and automatically set the Death Age to Infant and delete the memo.
