Re: Backup and Restore Family Historian error messages

Mike, Settings Backup & Restore seems to be working fine for me when using Crossover. I cross-checked the functions by running a native Windows installation in tandem before and after checking/installing Plugin updates and encountered no problems. Will do some further testing with writing Registry E...

Re: FH7 through Crossover will not load

Diane, On thing it might be worthwhile checking is the Mac System Settings > Security & Privacy > Privacy, as Catalina might be blocking some necessary access. My settings for Crossover and FH7 are shown below. There could be system differences, but the important check is that all Folders displayed ...

Re: FH, Parallels and Apple M1

As far as I know "Parallels for Mac M1", if/when it becomes available, would require the installation of a licensed Windows 10 version specifically designed to run on the Apple M1 Processor, i.e. not a 'regular' version of Windows 10 for ARM; and certainly not a 'standard' x32/64, version, which wou...

Re: OLE objects in Family Historian

Mike, My misunderstanding. I never have used the 'embedding' feature in FH as there seems to be no purpose to it, other than maintaining GEDCOM compatibility. As originally described it seems somewhat similar in concept to the embedding part of Windows OLE which inserts in a fixed snapshot of data f...

Re: Cloud based software

Helen, Yes, I see the problem of trying to get some clarity into a more precisely defined Wish or set of Wishes.

Re: Make the installation of the pdf driver optional

Colin, Thanks for the information. Glad I gave up on POM after early problems with use on Catalina and Big Sur! I'd guess it's probably an issue in the POM implementation, because complete installation has been successful for me using both Crossover for Mac and Wine in Linux, but I did have to 'kill...

Re: A Tale of Two Laptops, FH v6 & v7, & Crossover!

Mark,

Yes it does also apply to native Wine installations in Linux. Wine.apps are of course 'frighteningly' large when first seen, compared with native Windows installations; e.g. my FH7+AS7 install is around 1.3GB.

Re: re-ordering children not working...

I don't see that 'problem' at all. The selected individual is always highlighted on screen, i.e. their 'box' is significantly darker in colour compared with all other individuals visible, which seems clear to me. If all boxes are the same colour and shade, then no-one is selected.

Re: Repository - Custom ID

Ruth,

It's a standard GEDCOM Tag which basically allows a user to create their own 'alpha-numeric' reference system for individuals in their family tree, if they want to. You can Just ignore it if it's of no interest/use to you, which I suspect most users do.

As the error message says "File not found", can I ask the obvious? Have you checked the location mentioned using the Mac's File manager to verify whether or not it does exist there and is correctly named?
