Re: Add media to source via drop on tab

I am not seeing this problem. I can drag and drop a media file onto the Media tab of the Citation window and it appears on that tab, correctly linked to either the source record or the citation, depending on which I have chosen.

Re: Calico Pie - The name

it's quite hard to find a company name that isn't already taken.
As it happens, there is another business called Calico Pie. They sell craft products. But they can't be a limited company bacause two companies can't have the same name. See https://www.calicopie.co.uk/

Re: Is there a better way to configure diagrams

I know through visual inspection that a huge number of displayed siblings are irrelevant. If you are certain that some of them are irrelevent you can hide them completely, rather than just closing their descendants branches. (Right click on their box and select Hide .) That will make the diagram mu...

Re: Save Or Backup

When you 'save' the gedcom this simply updates the Gedcom file in your project. It simply keeps the file up to date with the most recent changes. This is the file which will be read next time you open your project. The important point about a backup is that it makes a completely separate copy of you...

Re: How to remove prepared citation

Evelyn, it looks as if you have now succeeded in adjusting the display in the 'Sources for' pane so that it shows a wide Source record column. However you have moved the column divider so far to the left that you can only see that one column. As you have correctly guessed, if you select an item in t...

If you start by moving the slider bar at the bottom to the right you should be able to expose the divider in the horizontal bar at the top. It is that divider that you need to drag to the left, not the vertical bar below it. snip.JPG If I choose to use templated sources in this fh Project does that ...

Evelyn, When you imported your projects from TMG I think you were still using FH6. That means that although your sources had been 'templated' in TMG they would have been imported as generic sources in FH. (Although they were not called 'generic' sources then, because FH 6 did not have templated sour...

Re: Existing sources Again

Thank you Evelyn, that explains what is happening. As Helen suggested, you are using a templated source for the UK 1939 Register, but that template is designed to be a 'splitter' style source, where you have one source for every household in the Register. That is why the people and address details a...

Re: Existing sources Again

Gowermick, Evelyn has said that she 'lumps' her sources, whereas yours is the 'splitter' method. She wants to have multiple different citations to the same source. We suspect that she may be using a 'splitter' templated source for the UK 1939 Register by mistake.

That is certainly odd, Mike, and has reminded me of another issue related to footnotes which I raised during beta testing.

Do you mean the entry date is still being displayed, despite having unticked it in the footnote options? That shouldn't happen. If the date is correctly hidden but duplicate citations are still being shown there must be some other differences in the details, such as Where Within Source or Citation N...

Re: Ghosts in the All Relatives Diagram

You can use Diagram Options>lines tab and set Crossing Lines to be Solid instead of Dotted. Personally I like the dotted style because it helps to distinguish these crossing lines from other horizontal lines in the chart, but it's a matter of personal preference.

Re: Apparent corruption of Saved Charts

It’s reassuring to know that there has not been a complete renumbering because that would have been impossible to explain. Most of those missing 340 Record IDs can probably be accounted for as the result of merging records. However it is still not clear how the ‘trio’ of people came to have the same...
