Re: Inserting a Text Box into a Diagram

I apologise for not responding earlier - I have been struck down with bronchitis since Christmas Eve ! However, I today tried increasing the margins, then increasing the font size and - low and behold - it all appeared. I suspect that my diagram - which is nearly 2 metres by three metres - was too l...

Inserting a Text Box into a Diagram

In earlier versions of FH, I inserted a Text Box into a Diagram simply to provide a Title for the finished Chart. I have tried to do this in the current version (6.2.7): I get a keylined box, right click it and clicking 'Format' I write in the wording I require with some other simple formatting. I t...

Charts coloured ribbons

Is there any way to remove the Coloured Ribbon Link which appears in a chart if a person shows up in two places?
I don't want to remove (hide) either of the persons' boxes - just Ribbon Link.
[I'm using ver. 6.2.6]
Many thanks

Re: Diagram Use ~ All Relatives v Everyone

Hello Many thanks for your rapid reply. I have a couple of 'Everyone' Diagrams, but I cannot see any difference to 'All Relatives' Charts, or see any unrelated individuals. Will unrelated individuals appear if I don't have a Root selected? I would try this myself, but as we speak I am deep into a ma...

Triplicate lines in Chart

Hi I'm using V.5. In the diagram for this file, I am getting THREE lines for the same people and I just cannot see why. I have built at least 6 diagrams from scratch using this gedcom file and each time I get the triplication. I'm sure I'm being an idiot somewhere. Can you help? The line is Thomas S...

I have Version 3.1.2 installed on my (XP) PC. I wish to retain this untouched - but to install V4 (of which I have a full retail copy) preparatory to upgrading to V5.

To Tatewise: Many thanks for your kind patience and useful instructions -which, however, still require me to change my filing structure permanently.

What I don't understand is why you are so certain that the 'Project' structure is so beneficial.  What is it for?  What advantages/improvements does it bring to carrying out research over the simple, uncomplicated V3.1.2 way of saving data?   All it does is add several more mouse clicks to access da...

Many thanks for you quick reply. Is there any way I can circumvent/avoid the entire 'Project' routine and simply save (and open) both my .ged and .fhc files to destinations where I want to put them and not where FH dictates I should have them? - in fact, just like it used to be in V3.1.2. The reason...

How can I save my .ged and .fhc files directly to a location/folder of my choice and bypass the automatic 'My Project' route?

Records Window

In 3.1.2, is there a way of re-numbering/re-allocating Record IDs? I have a project where I have deleted about 10 records as not relevant, and should like to renumber the remainder so that there are no gaps in the record id number sequence.

Regards

OK - but what you've both missed is that I want SPOUSE NAME as well as Marriage Date & Place - this would clearly identify which marriage was which. I currently have Spouse name, Date & place - but it is appearing in both boxes and I want it to appear in only one box of the pair as described...

Thanks for your reply;

does that mean (A) what I want isn't possible? or (B) what I want isn't practicable because it won't show all marriages?

Thank you for your reply.
I am using the Text Scheme, and I cannot see how to have the marriage only in one box and not spouse.  Perhaps in order to have this I need to use individual text schemes for B,M,D, etc in order to be able to edit the marriage box to my requirement?
