Re: Out of Memory

Thanks Mike - I changed the setting as you suggested. And will be aware that I will need to delete the cache from time to time. Guess my Gedcom is getting overloaded. But I remember that someone said: "once the genealogy bug bites, you will be doing it forever". So true. Best regards to al...

Re: Out of Memory

I just got the same message of "out of memory". Somehow I think that in my case it is the same as the "unable to load" that Mike resolved by suggesting that I delete the cache. I closed the program and deleted that file and the media that I was trying to open did open. I am also ...

Re: Media Problem: "an error has occurred - unable to load object"

Thanks again Mike. I've made note of the "gets too big" issue so will have that in mind if I get another message that says unable to load. Hopefully FH6 is able to handle really big files as I am up to some 61,000 people and I have no idea how many media files. Best to the helpful people h...

Re: Media Problem: "an error has occurred - unable to load object"

Thanks Mike. I deleted that file that appeared to be "rather" large and the image opened. I don't understand why that particular .jpg would not "load" or open as I subsequently found other pictures, etc. that downloaded and opened without a problem BEFORE I deleted the file. And ...

Media Problem: 'an error has occurred - unable to load object'

I'm attempting to add a marriage record from ancestry.com to my media file. I've used their "save to" method and put the record in my media file as a .jpg. When I try to put it in the individual media box I get the above message. I also copied the file to the desktop and dragged it into th...

Re: Missing function in Project Window > More Tasks

FINALLY!! Thanks Mike. It usually is the little detail that is either the one that doesn't get done or done correctly so you don't get the result you want OR it is the one that fixes the problem. I now have a clean list!!

Again, many thanks to all the folks at FHUG who are so helpful.

Spell-Check

Is there any update on whether or if FH will have an auto spell check? Sure would be handy.

Re: Missing function in Project Window > More Tasks

Jane - I had hoped that your suggestion would work. I exported the two files that I want to keep in the file list to a separate file folder so that they could be imported back into FH without losing anything. I used the clean out Gedcom list plug - it ran. When I reopened FH the list was still there...

Re: Missing function in Project Window > More Tasks

It is STILL in the Gedcom File Tasks list...

Re: Missing function in Project Window > More Tasks

Hopefully I can attach a couple of screen shots that will clarify my question. The list of Gedcom File Tasks has 9 files. I want to delete several of them from the list. As you see in the project window, there is only the one project showing and the More Tasks button does not provide a way to delete...

Missing function in Project Window > More Tasks

I'm currently using FH 6.2.7. In my Gedcom file tasks I have some 9 family trees listed. I want to delete 3 or 4 of them but retain those currently working on or still there for reference. One of them listed is my main tree with some 61,000 individuals. [Yes, it is backed up on the hard drive and an...

Re: Record Id

Forgot to put in a listing of one of my backups. They are all listed pretty much this way.

FH Gedcom Backup - Sherwood FH Sept 2011 - 2017-05-24 0741

Maybe that helps in why no application was found?

Re: Record Id

Thanks Mike. I'll try to do a bit of experimenting as you suggest. Hope I don't throw everything off. I'm thinking if I use a BACKUP from the 21st and perhaps the 22nd that would not present a problem for me [not SO much technically oriented] that I would lose data. Or maybe even better, export a co...

Re: Record Id

Record 20 and 21 were initiated on that date. Others that were initiated that date had the next consecutive #recorded. Some worked on that date were changes or additions to older data and some got assigned a Custom ID and some not. Again I have made no changes to how things are recorded. Unfortunate...
