Re: Toponymy Version 2 Program

The only issue I had is that first run opens a web help page, and the program has to be run again (Leaving the page open) and opens a second instance of said page but program then runs. However I used to experience the same beh...

Re: Using Dropbox for FH data storage

I have been using Dropbox for several years to store My FH projects without any problems. and definitely did not have to export/import credentials in order to open a file. As Mike Tate stated, the credentials are only so that your FMP etc hints are synchronised between the two computers. The path in...

Re: harmonizing TMG9 tag types with FH6 fact types

Easiest way is to use the "Change any Fact Tag" Plugin. You still have to do each fact type individually (Ie education to Education) but it will do most of the legwork for you. It is a very powerful plugin, so it may be worth experimenting with the sample project first. Also remember that ...

Conditional Line in Diagram Text Scheme

I have line in my diagram text scheme to show the relationship pool number.

Relation Pool.JPG
Relation Pool.JPG (56.89 KiB) Viewed 256 times


Is there a way to make this conditional, so that the line only shows if it is NOT pool 1
TIA

If you Right Click on any column heading in the records window and choose "Configure Columns", you can choose/change the default sort order for any column (As well as being able to add extra columns)

Re: Relationship between FH and "Find my Past"

You can also have a problem with FMP if you record BMD events with Quarter Dates. FMP ignores them completely.
e.g. if you have an individua; bn Q1 1872, then the FMP hint will show DOB Unknown.
I reported this to Calico Pie over a year ago.

Re: Font Sizes Lifespan and Divider lines

If you open your preferred custom diagram on an individual, then choose the menu option Diagram>Settings> save as default settings.
Your diagram style will then be used in all projects.
At any point you can choose to revert to installation settings.

Re: Generations 4.5 to FH6 Queries

Don't panic, I moved from Generations to FH3 many years ago, and thought that I had lost a lot of my data, but it was just in hard to find places (UDF). With FH6 and plugins, the move will be much easier, but you will need to get your head around what will seem to be strange terminology. You may sti...

Re: Female Married Name

With AS and census entries, if you have recorded a marriage event for a couple, then even with the woman on her her own, the auto text will show her MARRIED name.
If you have not recorded a marriage event, the the husband needs to be present for the autotext to show the married name

Re: Show Project Statistics updated plugin

Mike, I have just tried the latest version 1.9.2.
The pop-up window to reset the grid does appear, but behind FH, so it is not visible. I had FH running on half of my laptop screen, so half of the pop-up window was visible.

Re: Problem with Lookup Missing Census Facts

Hi Mike,
I too noticed the speed when using the add relatives method.
Just a point about the Isle of Man on Familysearch. The Isle of Man is treated as a country in it's own right, probably because a lot of higher ups in LDS have Manx roots.

Re: Problem with Lookup Missing Census Facts

Mike,
The plugin now does not seem to allow for the fact that as far as UK census is concerned, the Isle of Man is part of UK (If the use facts option is selected).

Also, would it be possible to have a button to retrieve the last search/results page. I know where to find it, but others may not.
