Re: Getting The Most from Family Historian 6 now available

Will a digital (PDF or Kindle) version of this book be for sale at some point?

Re: Exporting as UTF-8 (without BOM)

Thanks Mike. Do you know why FH decided to use UTF-16 rather than UTF-8? I did notice the file size doubled, and it takes a lot longer to "save" the file in FH now, especially when auto-save is enabled. Just wondering what the advantages are of UTF-16 over UTF-8 for Family Historian files.

Re: Exporting as UTF-8 (without BOM)

Wow, thanks Mike!! Using UTF-8 WITH the BOM made the difference -- now it displays the characters as desired. Thanks so much for your help! In the early days of UTF-8, the BOM gave us problems in some of our programs where I work, so I've always just shy'ed away from using it. Now I see that some pr...

Exporting as UTF-8 (without BOM)

Hello, After I recently upgraded to the new version of FH, I realized that it is now saving the GEDCOM file in UTF-16 (which includes the Bite Order Mark at the top of the file). My other applications can't use UTF-16, so now I have to export my file as UTF-8 (without BOM) from FH, which I didn't ha...

Adding Source Citations to Multimedia

I know #417 asks for a source on multimedia, but it's also asking to put a PLACE on multimedia as well. To me, that is two different wish list items, as one is GEDCOM-compliant, and the other is not. I would like to see either #417 be split into two items or add another wish list item specifically f...

Question re: Fact Query

I've made a custom Fact Query in FH 4.1.2, and would like to list the Relationship of the Wife (or Husband) of each record returned. I've tried this as the expression:  =Relationship(FileRoot(),%FACT.WIFE%,TEXT,1) But it returns the error: 'The expression entered is not recognised as a valid functio...

Display Ind. ID in Family Query

I'd like to display the Husband's Individual RecordID (as well as his Wife's) within a 'Family' Query. As =RecordID() returns the FamilyID, I've tried things like %FAM.HUSB>RecordID()%, but that's not valid. I've tried %FAM.HUSB>RFN%, REFN%, and RIN%, none of which display the actual RecordID. What ...

Roles for events in source citations

I would like to have the ability to add more 'roles' in an event within a source citation. Currently, the only values allowed are Child, Husband, Wife, Mother, Father, or Spouse. But according to the GEDCOM 5.5 Standard (http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~pmcbride/gedcom/55gcch2.htm#ROLE_IN_EVENT), addi...

I would like to see either a 'favorites' or a user-defined shortcut assignment to commonly-used queries or reports.
