Re: 2 Parts - include Custom Source Template footnote in fact definition sentence template

The narrative should be associated with the Fact(s) and not the source. Some people construct a local note for the fact containing the details they want to display, and then set the sentence template to {note}.

Re: 2 Parts - include Custom Source Template footnote in fact definition sentence template

As Mike says, you're trying to put too much information in the Footnotes -- and indeed in your Source Template! The Source Template should only contain the information needed to identify/locate the source , not all the information that is held in the source. -- for that, you should use Text from Sou...

John, there's a delay between you submitting them and them actually getting posted -- shouldn't be long, but don't worry when they don't appear straight away.

Re: Main Tab Configuration

I agree with Nick -- AS does a good job with this. Also, you don't necessarily need all those details to get a certificate -- a local register office can't use GRO reference numbers. And the GRO can work with: Year birth was registered Surname at birth * Forename(s) * Date of birth (dd/mm/yyyy)* (If...

Re: AS Error Message: Data Entry 4.9

Mike, I think you have to accept (based on Nick's experience) that users do get confused, however much you think they shouldn't -- the difference between a plugin and an application might be obvious to thee and me, but most users couldn't care less about technical niceties -- they just want to enter...

Re: AS Error Message: Data Entry 4.9

I do find it amazing that with those two distinct processes the two components get confused. Mike, perhaps the fact that users do get confused is an indication that many people's brains don't work like yours? I don't think existing users would get confused, so perhaps amending "several help pages" ...

Except AS will always offer more options -- I'm aiming to support the most 'usual' ways of working but not every way of working. And people used to AS have no reason to switch, unless they like to prepare their citation in FH first.

Re: FH7 Custom Census Source Templates

I'm fairly sure that DEAs can't just automatically work with any of the infinite possible text template thrown at it without doing some technical work. I'm writing DEAs that will work with any template -- they'll look to see if there are any 'likely' field values for name date place address etc and...

BEJ, many people do -- it isn't the clearest of distinctions. I've often thought the plugin should be renamed 'Launch Ancestral Sources' for clarity.

Re: FH7 Custom Census Source Templates

There is another practical option. You could prepare the source/citation in FH, if that's your preference, and then use a Data Entry Assistant to generate the facts citations etc. They aren't as mature as AS, but may fit your need, and more will become available with time.

If you check in the Plugin Store, you'll see that plugin hasn't been updated to work with V7.

Perhaps you should have laboured the point more, Mike, so we spotted it -- we were discussing instead whether or not the 'feature' had a use.
