Re: Problems with Individual Tabs

I was wondering about video driver updates. It's worth checking you've got the most up-to-date versions of the specific drivers for your device (not the generic Microsoft ones).

It might be useful to put this into the Rules, explaining also that private messaging by email is available provided t...

Re: Getting Display Resolution

I usually set the size of a Dialog to HALF x HALF, knowing that will fit on the screen, and have scrollbars where needed, plus the ability to resize the dialog. However, if you look in the IUP documentation and Attributes > Global > Screen information, you'll find (if you haven't already found it) F...

Re: Getting Display Resolution

Why not let IUP do the work? From the Attributes for a Dialog: SIZE (non inheritable): Dialog’s size. Additionally the following values can also be defined for width and/or height: "FULL": Defines the dialog’s width (or height) equal to the screen's width (or height) "HALF": Defi...

Re: Private Messages

Re: filling out a source template

Just to add, to record the equivalent of 'Source of a source', I would put 'Ancestry.com' in the URL field of the template and 'Berlin, Germany, Births, 1874-1908' in the Collection field. The template needs modifying to include those in the footnote, however.

Re: Question about citations added to Media records

If you have (say) a photograph of an individual, you can use the citation to record its source etc. 'Betty Boop provided this via Ancestry; I don't know the original photographer and am on the fence about whether this if Great Aunt Ada or not...' :lol:

See the Delete Recent File List plugin in the Plugin Store. There may be other plugins and other use cases where FH does not have commands to adjust some registry keys.
Good catch.

Regarding Mandatory Requirement 4. using libraries, I don't see how it would be possible for a linked FHUG plugin to invoke separate libraries, which would not exist in the user's file system unless they were downloaded separately via another link. Doesn't need a link. Just copy the loadrequire sni...

For women, it's tricky as I want it to link to her main record, which has her birth surname, but also need to note her married name.
