Re: Recording GRO Index Birth/Death sources

Roman Catholic Registers mostly give the DOB as well as baptism, also mother's maiden name. Some may even contain details of a later marriage crammed into the space underneath. If there is a discrepancy between birth certificate and baptism birth record, I tend to use the baptism record. These discr...

Re: Copy & Paste from Onenote into Family Historian notes

Re: Transfer gedcom from free trial to purchased v6.2 on another laptopp

If you bought the full version of FH 6, you can also use the same serial number to "Activate" the free trial version to full status (You can have FH on 2 devices) , which will also mean that plugins can be run.

Re: Can I change the default location of the fh. files?

I have discovered that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will break any symbolic links that have been set up. It has done so on all of my computers.
After the update the links need to be recreated.

Re: Select Source

The order that sources are displayed when adding a source to a fact is governed by the sort order on the source record tab. At some point you must have sorted that tab on ID order. Just go to the Sources tab and click on the name column to sort in alpha order.

It depends on which page the family starts on as to how Ancestry label it.

Re: Autosave and saving

I stopped using Google drive because of the same problem.
Google Drive "Locks" the file while it is updating the cloud version, so you cannot save while that is happening.
If it is a large project, this could take 10-15 minutes.

Re: File Naming Convention

Your media name can be as long and complicated as you like. But you may run into problems if the filename itself is too long (Especially if you use dropbox and the like for file syncing)

Re: docking property box problem

How were you trying to "Dock" the property box Ray? Were you dragging it to the right hand side of the screen and letting it go (A windows operation), or were you using the "Dock / Float" feature from within FH. If the first method was used, then that could explain your symptoms....
