Re: Error message when saving back to FH

If it any help, I used to get this error when using Google drive. This was because Google Drive locks the file whilst it is synchronizing. Google drive seems to take a long time to synchronise, Which is why I switched to using dropbox

Re: Monumental Inscriptions - thoughts?

I don't use templated sources but. Monument Inscription is Fine for me, but I tend to use the word "Headstone" For the date I use the date of Death of the first person at the top of the Headstone. At the moment I Transcribe the whole inscription linking to the names as necessary. The sourc...

Re: Search and delete duplicate Family

Mike,
What I meant was that the family would be merged but the children from both would be present. If any were in fact the same child they would also need to be merged. This is what I think the OP was worried about

The family merge process will not merge the daughters unless you select and merge them during the merge process

Re: Unable to Save!

Is your file stored on some sort of cloud storage?

I used to get the problem when my project files were on Google Drive (I now use dropbox)

Google locks your files whilst it is updating the files in the cloud

Click on the individuals name in the people finder and choose "Change Name", once saved the change will be reflected in the census grid.

Re: Multiple marriages to same person

On your Uncles record choose to Add a new spouse - Link to existing record and choose spouse no 2. This will create a new family record, than add the new marriage data.
On the focus window you should then see the same couple listed twice, but with different marriage dates

Re: Check For Possible Duplicate Media (FH7) plugin - first prototype

Whenever I use the Check for Unlinked Media Plugin I always use the move option, because I want to check each file separately to verify that it does need deleting (Belt and Braces approach). The new Check for Duplicate Media functionality would do away with the need to run the unlinked media plugin.

Re: Backup failure

This sounds to me like a permissions issue. FH does not have permission to write to the area where the backup is to be saved.
Try re-installing FH (Neo need to delete first) by right clicking on the installation file and choosing "Run as administrator".

Re: Check For Possible Duplicate Media (FH7) plugin - first prototype

Quite correct Mark,
2 different files on each Media Record, Probably (Certainly) from a previous duplicates merge operation where I forgot to disconnect one of the records.

Took 7 minutes to run.

I just tried it, ran ok. Can't compare how long it took to the original version as I got called away from my computer while it was running.

I do not use templated sources.

Re: How many sources have you created with Ancestral Sources?

There are several ways to update the 1939 entry. Probably the easiest way is to rename the old image record (And update the filename) and also the source record (I add the word OLDE to both) and then delete them. and process the updated image as a new image and new source.
