Ed,

It looks like your profile still shows V6. You have to scroll down and click on Submit after changing the version number.

Re: Value field in an event tag?

Robert,

The current GEDCOM standard, 5.5.1, does not support events having a value field so FH does not allow them either.

You can use an attribute instead, which does allow a value field.

Re: adding a repository to multiple sources

That line was already in the plugin. Maybe during beta testing you sent me an updated version. I know you sent several updated plugins that aren't in the store, but of course I have forgotten which ones and didn't keep any notes anywhere.

Re: adding a repository to multiple sources

Mike,

I am not using templated sources and have no plans to. I will add a note in the description that it is OK to use in FH 7 but doesn't work with templated sources in case I ever change my mind.

Thanks!

Re: adding a repository to multiple sources

Mike,

Will the Add Repository to Source plugin still work in FH 7 without causing any data problems? The copy I have was last updated in 03 Feb 2017.

Thanks,

Re: Can I add a column to the Select source... window

Nevermind... I figured it out. All I had to do is add a column for Repository on the Sources tab of the records window. :oops:

Can I add a column to the Select source... window

In FH 7 can I add a column to the Select source... window that I get when I click on the Add Citation button in the property box? In FH 6 there was a column for Repository although I can't remember if it was there by default or I was able to add it somehow. In FH 7 I can't see any way to add it. Tha...

Re: Change default opening Tab for Citation floating window

Kathleen,

Glad you got it working the way you want. I know I like this much better than having the floating citation window floating over the focus window and property box and obscuring them.

Re: Change default opening Tab for Citation floating window

Kathleen, I'm not sure how the property box could be cemented to the right side of the screen if it is docked to the focus window. Are your focus window and property box inside one window with the icons in the upper right hand corner looking like mine (which I've enclosed inside red boxes to highlig...

Re: Establish fact with "to" field

Robert,

It isn't possible to create a fact with both a from and to place unless something has changed.

See this post Copying or creating an Event (14613) for additional info on the topic.

Re: Lat and Long for address?

Ian,

I believe the 3rd parameter should probably be "1" not "4". That parameter specifies how many sections (parts) to return.

Try =TextPart(%_PLAC%,2,1,STD), =TextPart(%_PLAC%,3,1,STD), etc.

See the help for TextPart.

Re: Free access to Ancestry over Easter weekend

Well it would seem you are correct. The note on Ancestry.co.uk does say that it applies to Ancestry.co.uk! There is no equavlent note on Ancestry.com. Is there anything stopping you going on Ancestry.co.uk? I can get on to Ancestry.com with no problem. It does ask if I meant .com and not .co.uk, bu...

Re: Free access to Ancestry over Easter weekend

It looks like this only applies to the UK version, not the US version.

It appears that only the following collections are free in the US.

I got the following reply from CP. Thank you for reporting that. We have confirmed the issue. It will be fixed in the next minor update. I wonder if the title of this topic should be changed since the problem really had nothing to do with the plugin really. Maybe "Missing scroll bar on results list"...
