Re: 20,000 and still going strong!

Mike,

You have helped me many times over the years and I really appreciate it.

The help you have given everyone and all the work you do writing plugins and in the Knowledge Base are very much appreciated as well.

Thanks!

Re: Location failure in map window

intended to do? It mentions Web Pages which confused me. I believe this is talking about creating maps for each individual so you can use them on a web page. I've never done this as I have not created a web site for my genealogy. Also it refers to Facts and the related Places but I guess this is an...

The plugin help is good, but if you have any additional questions I can try to answer them or I'm sure Mike will.

Re: Location failure in map window

I don't normally use Open Street Maps. I tried a couple of days ago and it was working fine, but it is not working for me today. I get the error "Geocoding service is currently not available". I use Mike Tate's plugin called Map Life Facts which uses Google Maps and it is working and does a much bet...

Re: Link to Frame

The frame doesn't show there in FH 6.2.7 which is the version I am on. Looks like it doesn't show there in FH 7 either.

Re: Link to Frame

Where are you expecting to see the detail frame?

For example, if I generate a report and include images for the source, the detail frame shows up.

Re: Link to Frame

Yes, this is possible. After linking the media to the source you can then use the button labeled "Link to Detail" to link to the portion of the media that applies.

Re: Census entry - Boarder

I don't know that there is "correct" way to do this. What I do is add my known relative as the only person in the grid and then add the other names in the Note field in case I find out later that they are in fact related to me. I don't want a bunch of unrelated individuals in my file. If you add the...

Re: Individuals without any Sources

Mike,

I just tried this plugin and it seems to work just fine. I was actually needing something like this myself. One question... would it be possible to add a surname column so one could sort by surname?

Re: Address field in Individual Main Property Box

Phil,

I'm still on 6.2.7 so don't really know much about this option. Since it is there I assume it will work fine, but don't know what changes will be made in the exported file. At the very least the rich text would have to be removed. Not sure what else.

Re: Address field in Individual Main Property Box

Phil, You probably are already aware of this, but just remember that you can not go the other way from FH 7 to FH 6. There are enough changes in FH 7 to the data structure (Gedcom 5.5.1 vs Gedcom 5.5) that it makes going that direction a problem. Don't ever open your gedcom file in FH 6 once it is u...

Furthermore, in the records window, Places is an available tab, but address doesn't seem to be available at all, except via Tools --> Working with data --> addresses I'm wondering if this is an oversight, or if the majority of users don't use address, and find Place is sufficient?

To add an address field to the main tab you use the cog menu and then select Customize Data Entry. Then on the Customize Property Box window you deselect the box in the bottom left for Show most commonly-used items only. Then select <Custom Item> (for advanced users) and add it to the Selected Items...

Re: Create Individual Shortcut error

I added the registry key and the plugin worked fine. Wouldn't most people uninstall the beta after installing FH 7 over FH 6.2.7? Seems like they would run into the same problem. Of course FH 7 has the functionality to remember the last person that had focus so this plugin isn't really necessary, bu...

Re: Create Individual Shortcut error

Mike,

I will try to create that key manually.

What I don't understand is how I got into this situation. All I did was use Control Panel to uninstall the beta. I did not manually delete this key from the Registry.

Has anyone else uninstalled the beta and run into the same problem?

I re-installed the latest update file for 6.2.7 and still get the same error. I looked in the registry and I don't have a key with the name HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\FH.exe\.

Re: Create Individual Shortcut error

I can download and install the version from the store. I only have 6.2.7 installed at this point. I uninstalled the beta.

But first I have a question. Why doesn't the old version that I have continue to run with 6.2.7? Nothing has changed in my installation of 6.2.7.

Re: FH 7 install

Uninstalling the beta is the first time I've uninstalled FH in a long time as well. I run the plugin any time I make any changes to FH so I am well prepared.
